About this ebook

What would you do if your husband told you he wanted to downsize and move onto a sailboat?

Mollie McGhie loves her beachfront cottage. When her husband announces that he wants to sell their house so they can move onto a dilapidated sailboat, she’s not impressed.

When the boat starts leaking, Mollie secretly hopes it will sink. Instead, they haul it 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. Accompanied by her adorable feline companion, Mollie searches for clues and interviews suspects in the small Floridian town of Coconut Cove.

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

Bodies in the Boatyard is the second book in the Mollie McGhie Cozy Sailing Mystery series. If you like quirky characters, adorable cats, and loads of chocolate, you’ll love this cozy mystery. Spoiler Alert: You'll want your own Japanese bobtail cat by the time you finish this book!

Bodies in the Boatyard is the second book in the Mollie McGhie Cozy Sailing Mystery series. This is a lighthearted and enjoyable story for an afternoon read. Mollie and her cat, Mrs. Moto find a body in the boatyard so Mollie tries to find the culprit. This story is well written, with quirky characters, humour, murder, blackmail, poaching, and of course, chocolate is a necessity. I love this series and cannot wait for the next book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
