Review of Murder on the Rocks

This is the first book in the series about female-sleuth Natalie Barnes. Natalie has moved to Cranberry Island Maine from Texas and is the proprietor of The Gray Whale Inn Bed & Breakfast. The book is centered around the current events and activities of her B&B. Plus there is the concern of what the proposed development called the Cranberry Island Premier Resort will do to the town and to Natalie's business. And of course there is a murder and Natalie finds herself in the middle of the police investigation. So she must do some fast sleuthing to clear herself.

I liked the descriptions of the coast of Maine - it made me feel like I was there! But I found the characters to be a bit one-sided. And I would have liked more background on Natalie herself.

All-in-all, I think this book is a good start to the series. I'll be reading more of them.
