Review: MURDER IN WHITE SANDS by Maria Bradeen
Feckless but well-intentioned Rae Lynn Dobbs has just agreed to boyfriend Caleb' s proposal on the beach and accepted a stultifyingly ugly ring, when the two spot a body in the sand. Turns out the deceased is a long-term resident of the local retirement home, where Rae Lynn is a low-level, underpaid employee. Rae Lynn might not recognize crassness in her fiance, but she does have an investigative bent, so she's determined to turn over the facts.
MURDER IN WHITE SANDS is a subtly intriguing (you'll be captured before you know it) "chick-cozy."
