Fun to read stand-alone mystery

Sunset Beach: A Novel

By: Mary Kay Andrews

Rating: 5 of 5

It’s been a while since I read a book by Mary Kay Andrews. In the past, most of the books I have read by this author where fairly lengthy but funny rom-com novels. With “Sunset Beach”, while the fun and some romance is still present, the books focuses on solving not one but two mystery whodunnits.

As I was nearing the end of the book, I was hoping that this novel would be the start of a series featuring Drue and Zee as investigators for the law firm they both work for. There is an Epilogue which seems to doom this hope to failure; however, I think that Mary Kay Adrews could (and should) still consider doing a series featuring this intrepid and intelligent heroine.

The story is (mostly) about Drue. She has recently been injured doing a sport to which she had dedicated her life. She has also lost her job and is in fairly desperate straits. In walks her father with an offer. He wants her to come to work for his law firm which seems to be a bit of an ambulance chaser place.
