Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"At the outset of MacInerney's entertaining third cozy (after 2007's Dead and Berried), innkeeper Natalie Barnes is pleased to be hosting the Lose-It-All Weight Loss retreat at her Gray Whale Inn on Maine's Cranberry Island. Natalie hopes to shed some weight herself since the romance with her shipwright neighbor, John Quinton, is heating up. When the buff corpse of trainer Dirk De Leon, whose regimen included suspicious dietary supplements, turns up near Cranberry Point Lighthouse, the police discover Dirk was poisoned and, to Natalie's dismay, investigate her kitchen. Natalie receives further shocks after John becomes a suspect and another guest is murdered. Adding to the intrigue is the skeleton estimated to be 150 years old that surfaces during the lighthouse's renovation. MacInerney adds a dash of the supernatural, throws in some touristy tidbits and finishes with some tasty diet-right recipes." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

It's springtime on Cranberry Island — and love is in the air. It seems like every woman has the hots for buff trainer Dirk De Leon. He and his equally-gorgeous business partner, Vanessa Black, are leading a weight-loss retreat at the Gray Whale Inn — forcing innkeeper Natalie Barnes to lighten up her butter-laden breakfast menu.

The mood on the island darkens when two grisly discoveries are made. The first is a skeleton walled up at the island's lighthouse. The second is a corpse of the fresh variety — the handsome Dirk Could the spirit that once embodied the skeletal remains — perhaps the lighthouse keeper who disappeared a century ago — be responsible for Dirk's death?

The police pin the blame on Natalie's boyfriend who — to her dismay — had a long-ago fling with Vanessa. To find the true killer and ease her own aching heart, Natalie must untangle the knot of jealous girlfriends and spurned admirers that once surrounded the hunky trainer.
