A Hole In One

(1 customer review)


Hoping to promote the Glass Dolphin antiques shop, co-owners Arabella Carpenter and Emily Garland agree to sponsor a hole in one contest at a charity golf tournament. The publicity turns out to be anything but positive, however, when Arabella’s errant tee shot lands in the woods next to a corpse.

They soon learn that the victim is closely related to Arabella’s ex-husband, who had been acting as the Course Marshal. With means, opportunity, and more than enough motive, he soon becomes the police department’s prime suspect, leaving Arabella and Emily determined to clear his name – even if they’re not entirely convinced of his innocence.

Dogged by incriminating Online posts from an anonymous blogger, they track down leads from Emily’s ex-fiancé (and the woman he left Emily for), an Elvis impersonator, and a retired antiques mall vendor with a secret of her own.

All trails lead to a mysterious cult that may have something to do with the murder. Can Arabella and Emily identify the killer before the murderer comes after them?

    This is the second book in the series and I can say I enjoyed both books and for different reasons. I think I liked this book better, book one was setting up the characters and with this one it felt like Emily had found her calling promoting the antique shop rather than as reporter. I don’t think you need to have read or listened to the first one to enjoy it, as it works well as a stand alone.The story is told by both Emily and Arabella as they investigate and I think this works very well for the story, keeping it moving. The mystery was good with plenty of goings on.
    Emily and Arabella agree to sponsor a hole in the local golf competition at a charity golf tournament by giving Which ever gets a hole in one winning a jet ski. A dead body on the course soon brings the tournament to a grinding halt and gets worse for Arabella when the dead man turns out to be the long lost father of her ex husbands, a man he denials have seen since the man walked out on him and his mother when he was just a lad. The police soon find a witness to rebuff the claim and he becomes the number on suspect. Arabella doesn’t know much about her ex husbands family he always refused to talk about it but she knows on thing he is not a killer. Can she and Emily prove the gun that was used to killed him was stolen before the murder and someone other than her ex husband had a reason to kill him? What about the other members of his group FYSST? Do they or his past have a connection to what happened to him now?
    I liked the narrator and thought she did a good job with the voices.
    I was given his free review copy audiobook at my request from audiobooksunleashed and have voluntarily left this review.
