Book Review - Milkshakes, Mermaids and Murder: An Ellie Avery Mystery by Sara Rosett

About The Book:

Ellie Avery planned a perfect family getaway: fun in the sun on Florida's Gulf Coast, with a side visit to the eBay vendor who'd mistakenly sent her the wrong handbag. But what should have been a simple exchange turns into a fatal transaction when Ellie discovers Angela495 floating face-down in her pool.

With some savvy snooping, Ellie learns that Angela's dangerous double life included blackmail, compromising photos, and a scandalous secret that threatens a local celeb. When a kidnapping shatters her family's safety, Ellie leaves the white sands behind to face down a killer whose warm Southern charm masks a cold, cold heart.
Includes great tips for super family vacations!

My Thoughts:

I am an unabashed fan of Sara Rosett, and it is always a delight when she has a new book!  Her latest, "Milkshakes, Mermaids and Murder," is the eighth book in her Ellie Avery Mystery series, and I think it is her best one to date!

Sara's character of "Ellie Avery," a Air Force wife and mom who always manages to stumble upon the most intriguing murders, is one of my favorite amateur sleuths in the cozy mystery genre. She is smart, well-organized (after all, she is a professional organizer!) and feisty! And I adore how her husband Mitch always supports her in whatever hair-brained situation she gets herself into.

In this story, Sara brings in Ellie's brother, Ben, who is a great side-kick to Ellie as they race to solve the mystery of who killed the designer purse seller!  Maybe one day Ben will have his own series ... hint, hint!

I highly recommend Sara Rosett's books.  If you are a cozy mystery fan, you will absolutely love this series!
