Trawling For Trouble
by Shelley Freydont
Trawling for Trouble:
A Celebration Bay Mystery Novella
Publisher: InterMix (July 21, 2015)
The author of Independence Slay is back as intrepid event planner Liv Montgomery discovers something fishy going on beneath Celebration Bay’s deceptively calm surface.
Liv Montgomery knew that asking Celebration Bay’s newspaper owner-slash-ne’er-do-well Chaz Bristow to teach her how to fish meant angling for more than a lesson in sinkers and chum. Like asking him to spearhead the fund raiser that’ll benefit the town’s community center. And there are worse ways to spend the afternoon than out on the town’s picturesque lake.
But it’s not long before Liv reels in a huge catch—already quite dead. It’s the body of an unknown man, and it was no accidental drowning. This floater was murdered. While local authorities investigate, it’s Liv and Chaz who stumble upon a shocking motive, and become live bait for a ruthless killer determined to keep his secrets down in the deep.
Liv is taking a little break between celebrations and Chaz has decided to teach her how to fish. Well wouldn’t you know the only thing she catches is the pocket of a pair of jeans. A pocket still connected to the pants and still being worn by a very dead man.
Hold on tight because this mystery is very fast paced and pretty exciting. Chaz and Liv are chasing down clues as fast as they can and trying to protect the ones that they love at the same time. Whiskey does his best to help them both out. The author has packed these pages full with drama and action.
Freydont has given us a nice quick novella as we anxiously await the release of Trick or Deceit out September 1. She also includes preview of that and a preview of A Gilded Grave that will be out August 4.
