"I'm a huge fan of Kathi's books. I think I've read every one. Without a doubt, she's a gifted cozy mystery author and I eagerly await each new release!" - Dianne Harman, Author of Trouble at the Animal Shelter
Tj Jensen and her family head to Turtle Cove Resort for summer vacation, but their plans for rest and relaxation are thwarted when they find a dead treasure hunter in the attic of the resort's main house. Initially vowing not to get involved, Tj quickly changes her tune when the Gull Island deputy on the case closes it after a bare bones investigation. All evidence points to foul play, and Tj's determined to uncover what the deputy wants to keep hidden. With the help of her best friend and a chatty parrot, Tj digs up a centuries old legend, a hidden map, and secrets buried deeper than a pirate's treasure.
"Daley's characters come to life on the page. Her novels are filled with a little mystery and a little romance which makes for a murderous adventure." - Tonya Kappes, USA Today Bestselling Author of Fixin' To Die

Author Bio: Kathi Daley lives with her husband, kids, grandkids, and Bernese mountain dogs in beautiful Lake Tahoe. When she isn't writing, she likes to read (preferably at the beach or by the fire), cook (preferably something with chocolate or cheese), and garden (planting and planning, not weeding). She also enjoys spending time in the water, hiking, biking, and snowshoeing. Kathi uses the mountain setting in which she lives, along with the animals (wild and domestic) that share her home, as inspiration for her five cozy mystery series: Zoe Donovan, Whales and Tails Island, Tj Jensen, Sand and Sea Hawaiian, and Seacliff High Teen.
Here is what I thought
Tj Jensen and her family head to Turtle Cove Resort for summer vacation but there isn’t going to be much relaxing as they find a dead body.
Tj thought it would be fun to get away and a friend of hers was in the hospital and needed someone to look after his old resort. Someone was wanting to buy it but the old man isn’t sure if he wants to sell and he thought Tj could watch over the resort and met with the man. They didn’t expect to find a dead treasure hunter in the attic.
It shouldn’t bother her and she should just let the police handle things but she just can’t quit thinking about the dead man and why he was in the attic. While the girls are enjoying outings at a summer camp she does a bit of snooping and Kyle helps out with her and volunteers with the camp. It seems the treasure hunter didn’t have a very good reputation so it was easy to start finding suspects.
I really like Tj and this one took a bit of a surprise turn for me in the romance department as her romance is always taking a turn somewhere I guess I shouldn’t be real surprised but I was and won’t mention it in case you want to be surprised too. 🙂
I have really enjoyed these short cozies from this author as they always have a great mystery so I don’t feel I am missing anything and sometimes you just need a short read. One more and I have caught up on another series! So I will probably be getting to Fireworks in Paradise soon.
Coleen Marlo does a great job with this one and has become a favorite.
