“I can’t believe he threw a rock at someone holding a gun, “I said to Bonnie.
“Yeah, that one must have fallen out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down,” Bonnie said with a smirk.”
Chelsey Alton is a Municipal Clerk for the state of New Jersey in Coral Beach Village recently returning to the workforce after a harrowing experience being held as a hostage at her previous employment for the Town of Sunshine. Working once again has Chelsey smack dab in the middle of a murder mystery that killed the previous Clerk holding the position that she is now employed. Her new employers are involved in a tax and money-laundering scheme that involves the citizens of Coral Beach Village and their expensive beachfront properties.
Chelsey begins her own investigation into the death of the previous Municipal Clerk Vinny Buttiglieri with her best friend Bonnie and discovers there are mafia involvement as well as murder, arson, and political corruption. In addition, Chelsey has three enamored men chasing after her and does not know whether to choose Kris the restaurant owner and chef, Bryce the co-worker who is keeping secrets, or Mike the nerdy computer geek who refuses to take no for an answer. Either way, Chelsey has more than enough to handle putting the pieces together in the mystery murder of Vinny when no one is who they seem and the mafia is on her trail.
This novel is very entertaining drawing the reader in from Chapter 1 until the last page of the book. The characters are likeable except for Mike Nero the computer geek who annoys Chelsey but serves the purpose of what the author intended. I recommend reading to those who love murder mysteries and suspense with a bit of humor.
