In the latest Death on Demand Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Don't Go Home, book seller Annie Darling learns murder and money go hand in hand...
Annie's friend and fellow shop owner Ves Roundtree is a very wealthy woman. Her rich brother entrusted her with his estate, and upon her death, his fortune is to be divided. Several cash-strapped islanders are in line to collect life-changing inheritances. The problem is, Ves is very much alive.
Ves hosts a dinner for the prospective beneficiaries and feels a chill in the air that has nothing to do with the wintry season. Not long after, she suffers a bad fall that was no accident. Everyone at the table had a motive but not a shred of evidence was left behind.
When one of the suspects is found floating in the harbor and Ves disappears, Annie and her husband Max spring into action to catch a calculating killer before greed takes another life.

I found that this book didn't have much of a mystery. I sort of figured out the whole premise about halfway through. I usually love Carolyn Hart's Death on Demand series and Annie and Max are quite adorable really, but this book just didn't give enough background and the plot development was a bit spotty. All in all, unless you're a die hard Carolyn Hart fan, I'd give this one a miss.
