This is the first in a new series.  But I had read the second book in this series,  ‘Murder on Sea’ first.

An intriguing debut mystery novel combining seafood, murder and a multitasking heroine in a gorgeous seaside location!

Pearl Nolan always wanted to be a detective but life, and a teenage pregnancy, got in the way of a police career and instead she built up a successful seafood restaurant in her coastal home town of Whitstable – famous for its native oysters.

Now, at 39, and with son Charlie away at university, Pearl finds herself suffering from empty nest syndrome . . . until she discovers the drowned body of local oyster fisherman Vinnie Rowe, weighted down with an anchor chain, on the eve of Whitstable’s annual oyster festival.

Is it a tragic accident, suicide – or murder?

Like I said on my review of ‘Murder on Sea’, the author has created a nice well rounded set of characters in Pearl, Dolly and McGuire, in a well plotted and written mystery.
