    One thought on “Murder at the Holiday Flotilla”

    1. A light read jelly book set in Wilmington over the holidays with the Wilkes sisters and their escapades. (or should I say Escalades) Life as I'll never know it with catered parties and a professionally decorated 8 bedroom "lodge" on the Intracoastal or the cozy Craftsman Bungalow in the historic district. Nice to live vicariously, knowing that all will work out in the end.

    2. The ninth book in the series has Ashley and Melanie and their families celebrating the holidays and Ashley and Jon's twin boys. Unfortunately the lovely seasonal parties, decorations, and parades are interrupted by murder. One notable subject in the book was the practice of trapping and caging wild animals like foxes and using them to "train" hunting dogs. These poor wild creatures have no chance to escape and end up being ripped apart by dogs so that hunters can practice their "sport." This is [...]

    3. Not the bestNot the bestI started reading Hunter 's books when we were planning our move to the Wilmington area. Granted, cozy mysteries aren't know for their complexity, but at least make the characters have a little personality. The other books in the series were tolerable,.but in this novel, the author gets overly preachy about hunting to the point that it's insulting. Granted the type of fox hunting she focuses on is barbaric, but then the author goes on a rant on how ALLnters are Neandertha [...]

    4. This book in the series was OK. It's getting old to continually have their wealth thrown out their (Cadillacs, Escalades, designer goods, hugh homes, boats, etc.) and reminders that Melanie was a beauty queen and Ashley is Ashley. Maybe it's time she figures out which twin is which. And then they get more money!

    5. This was a decent book in the series, but I have to admit it got old when the cars were repeatedly referred to as the Cadillac (her sister's car) and the Escalade (her car). And it wasn't just a stroller, it was an Eddie Bauer double stroller. I get it. They're rich. And they repeatedly refer to their babies as the little darlings. And Never mind. You get the point.

    6. Easy read! Not as good as earlier books. Editing in ebook was not great but a nice visit with Ashley and Melanie. Their family continues to grow with the addition of Ashley's twin boys but I don't know how Ashley will be able to continue to find dead bodies everywhere she goes with the babies in tow.

    7. The book was OK, The main characters were not very exciting and it wasn't difficult to figure out who the murderer was.

    8. Quite enjoyable, as are all the other books in the series. The characters are lovely if somewhat shallow, and the mystery was as always intriguing
