What would you do if your hubby announced that he wanted to downsize and move onto a sailboat?


Selling your house and moving onto a rundown sailboat—not a dream come true. Finding dead bodies in the boatyard—a total nightmare.


Mollie McGhie loves her beachfront cottage. When her husband announces that he wants to sell the house, downsize, and move onto their dilapidated sailboat, she’s not impressed.


When the boat starts leaking, she secretly hopes it will sink. Instead, they haul her out of the water and into the boatyard. Fixing the boat up is bad enough, but when Mollie finds someone has been killed nearby, things get even worse.


Mollie takes matters into her own hands and investigates the mysterious death in the boatyard, along with her adorable feline companion, Mrs. Moto. While she searches for clues, she meets more of the quirky characters who live in the small Floridian town of Coconut Cove, learns about sea turtles, overcomes her fear of public speaking, and, of course, eats way too many sugary treats.


Can Mollie catch the killer before someone else ends up dead?


Bodies in the Boatyard is the second book in the light, humorous, and original Mollie McGhie cozy sailing mystery series. If you like kooky characters, adorable cats, and plenty of chocolate, you'll love this cozy mystery. Buy Bodies in the Boatyard today and laugh out loud from the first page to the last.


Spoiler Alert: You'll want your own Japanese bobtail cat by the time you finish this book!

What would you do if your hubby gave you the worst anniversary gift ever?


A dilapidated sailboat for your anniversary—not very romantic. A dead body on board—even worse.


Mollie McGhie is hoping for diamonds for her tenth wedding anniversary. Instead, her clueless hubby presents her with a rundown boat. She's not impressed.


When she discovers someone murdered on board, things get even worse. Mollie hopes it will convince her husband to rethink his hare-brained scheme of sailing off into the sunset. Instead, he's more determined than ever to fix the boat up and set off to sea.


Poking her nose in where it doesn't belong, Mollie finds herself drawn into the tight-knit community living at Palm Tree Marina in Coconut Cove, a small town on the Florida coast. She uncovers a crime ring dealing in stolen marine equipment, eats way too many chocolate bars, adopts a cat, and learns far more about sailing than she ever wanted to.


Will Mollie be able to discover who the murderer is before her nosiness gets her killed?

Book #1—Murder at the Marina

Book #2—Bodies in the Boatyard

Book #3—Poisoned by the Pier

Book #4—Dead in the Dinghy (late 2019)

ItOCOs a beautiful day in Hawaii. Kay Yoshinobu and Sid Chu have been invited for a day trip on the luxurious Forbes yacht. At the outset, the excursion meets all expectations. The food is wonderful, the seas are calm, the magnificent boat is obviously in competent hands. ThereOCOs an undercurrent of unease, however, centering chiefly on their hostessOCothe recently widowed Joanna Forbes. Two rivals for her affection hover around her. One is young, athletic Bart Cain. The other is dentist David Rouse. And others on board also seemed to be involved in emotional and dangerous cross currents of their own. Even so, there is little thought of actual physical danger when Bart decides to do some lone scuba diving. Twenty minutes later, there is reason for concern. From the side of the boat, the onlookers can see the diver is in trouble. Rescue efforts fail, and Bart is pronounced dead soon after they get the body back to shore. At first, it seems like a tragic accident. The discovery of nitrous oxide in his diving bottle indicates a murder took place, and Rouse is the natural suspect. Kay, in the meantime, is representing JoannaOCOs brother in a DUI case and uses that as an excuse to look further into BartOCOs death, convinced as she is that David Rouse is innocent. More tragedies follow in the wake of the ill-fated boating day, and only the combined efforts of Kay, Sid, Laura and the cooperative Elima police prevent even more deaths.
