Book: Murder on the Rocks by Karn MacInerny

I love a good mystery novel, and especially mystery series, where you can really get to know the characters. Murder on the Rocks: A Grey Whale Inn Mystery looks to be the beginning of a very fun series.

Natalie, new owner and operator of the Grey Whale Inn on Cranberry Island, Maine is struggling through her first year as an innkeeper. Her niece, Gwen, has been sent from California, after having trouble in her first year of college to take some art classes and help out at the inn. Life gets very complicated when a high-powered developer decides to build his new resort right next to the inn, but is found dead at the bottom of the ocean-view bluffs before the deal can go through. Everyone suspects Natalie, who was working to turn the bluffs and surrounding area into a bird sanctuary.

I like the cast of characters surrounding Natalie and would really enjoy seeing them again and again as the backdrop to mystery. Growing up in a small town, I also love to re-visit that time through the stories I read.

MacInerney's next book, Dead and Berried, is available for pre-order on Amazon.
