Beach Kill by Phyllis Smallman

Book 2 in the Singer Brown Mysteries series

With a twisting plot, and a touch of romantic sensuality, this story captures the essence of small town life where no sin can be hidden for long. With the discovery of the ravished body of a teenage girl, a tragic series of events is set in motion. Secrets and desires are revealed. The second book in the Singer Brown series, it is set on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest.

I am partial to the author's style: a simple and light narrative, a fast paced storyline that includes many humorous twists and has plenty of suspenseful moments, one that is populated with colorful and eccentric characters and to top it all provides a captivating saga that grabs you from the start and never let's go. ~ Toni Osborne ~ Top 500 reviewer
