About this ebook

A Northern California B&B is the perfect spot for murder in this cozy mystery series debut by the USA Today bestselling author of Murder at the Mansion.
If it weren’t for the fact that she’s replacing a dead man, Kelly Jackson would love her new job managing the Redwood Cove Bed and Breakfast on the coast of Northern California. But Bob Phillips did plunge off the cliff to his death. And Kelly’s starting to think it may not have been an accident. With a little help from Bob’s retired friends—the “Silver Sentinels”—Kelly starts snooping around for answers.
When she’s not overseeing the B&B’s annual Taste of Chocolate and Wine Festival, Kelly and the Silver Sentinels are making serious headway—so serious that Kelly is attacked. And when another body turns up, Kelly knows she better act fast to uncover the killer before she gets sent on a permanent vacation.

Murder at Redwood Cove by Janet Finsilver is the first book in a new cozy mystery series. Kelly Jackson is an Executive Administrator for Resorts International. Her first single assignment is the Redwood Cove Bed and Breakfast. The manager, Bob Phillips died in an accident and Kelly has been sent to take over as interim manager. Redwood Cove, California is a beautiful location with a lovely town. Shortly after arriving Kelly meets the Silver Sentinels. A group of senior citizens from the town who solve crimes. Bob Phillips was a member. The Silver Sentinels do not believe that Bob’s death is an accident, but they are unable to convince Deputy Sheriff Bill Stanton. After Bob’s office is ransacked, Kelly discovers an envelope in the safe. Bob had written in the information in code but there was a note asking that the contents be given to the Silver Sentinels. The group is thrilled to have something to investigate. Kelly decides to help the group and starts asking questions around town. Kelly is hoping to find out Bob’s movements the day he died from his phone. The phone is returned to Kelly’s office and stolen before she can look at it. Someone has something to hide. Will Kelly and the Silver Sentinels be able to figure out who wanted Bob dead and why? I enjoyed reading Murder at Redwood Cove. It is a good first book in a series. I liked the setting of Redwood Cove and the Silver Sentinels (a fun group). I think Kelly will be a good main character, but she needs a little more development. We are given just a few details on Kelly’s life prior to coming to Redwood Cove (I found out more about Fred the basset hound than I did about Kelly). The mystery was complex (just how I like them) and not easy to solve (though I did). I give Murder at Redwood Cove 4 out of 5 stars. I will definitely be reading the next book in this series. I received a complimentary copy of Murder at Redwood Cove from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

It was a little slow at the beginning for me. But then it got better. I like the characters.
