Trawling for Trouble by Shelley Freydont

Trawling For Trouble
by Shelley Freydont

TRAWLINGTrawling for Trouble:
A Celebration Bay Mystery Novella

Cozy Mystery
Publisher: InterMix (July 21, 2015)


The author of Independence Slay is back as intrepid event planner Liv Montgomery discovers something fishy going on beneath Celebration Bay’s deceptively calm surface.
Liv Montgomery knew that asking Celebration Bay’s newspaper owner-slash-ne’er-do-well Chaz Bristow to teach her how to fish meant angling for more than a lesson in sinkers and chum. Like asking him to spearhead the fund raiser that’ll benefit the town’s community center. And there are worse ways to spend the afternoon than out on the town’s picturesque lake.
But it’s not long before Liv reels in a huge catch—already quite dead. It’s the body of an unknown man, and it was no accidental drowning. This floater was murdered. While local authorities investigate, it’s Liv and Chaz who stumble upon a shocking motive, and become live bait for a ruthless killer determined to keep his secrets down in the deep.
Includes exclusive previews of the next Celebration Bay mystery, Trick or Deceit, and A Gilded Grave, the first book in Shelley Freydont’s new Newport Gilded Age Mystery series.

What I Thought:

This was a great novella installment of the Celebration Bay Mysteries.  Liv is at it again, she just can't seem to keep out of trouble!  And the banter between her and Chaz is humorous at times.  Chaz is teaching Liv how to fish and she fishes a body out of the water.  Her and Chaz embark on a mission to find the killers.  Of course the Zimmerman sisters are involved in this one, along with two Vietnam Vets, some diamonds, and Liv's Westie Whiskey, who is right in the middle, again.  This is a fast, entertaining read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
