About this ebook

What would you do if your husband got you the worst anniversary present ever?


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 much chocolate, 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?


Murder at the Marina is the first 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 be craving brownies by the time you finish this book!

This is a fabulous cozy that was funny as well as intriguing. I was surprised by the ending - I could not figure it out until the big reveal. I love the characters although I think a boat (without a body of course) is way better than a diamond! Either way, this is fun and I cannot wait for book #2. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
