Some family secrets shouldn’t stay buried….
Music professor Gus LeGarde and his wife, Camille, are looking forward to a relaxing vacation at Paines Creek Beach on beautiful Cape Cod. But Gus barely has a chance to feel the sand between his toes before a near-miss car accident drags him right into the middle of a local family feud – and a centuries-old mystery that’s begging to be solved.
As Gus is drawn further into the conflict between the Cooks and the McNabbs – two families with a grudge going all the way back to colonial times – he and Camille keep uncovering more questions than answers. Where is the long-lost Cook family treasure? What’s really wrong with Beckett, the McNabb-side member who’s the father of young Jane Cook’s son? And who’s telling the truth about Beckett and Jane’s clandestine relationship: Jane’s grandfather, surly patriarch Albert Cook; or Beckett’s slightly odd parents?
Before long, mounting tension gives way to true danger as people start vanishing. And in the middle of a fast-brewing hurricane, Gus discovers the real secret at the heart of the feud: someone who will stop at nothing to make sure their side wins. Including murder.
Packed with shocking twists, exciting action, and fascinating tales of family lore and pirate treasure, Murder on the Brewster Flats is the first LeGarde Mysteries crossover novel with award-winning author Aaron Paul Lazar’s popular Paines Creek Beach series. Don’t miss this installment!

A nice relaxing vacation on Cape Cod…Ummm NO! Gus and his wife, Camille, have been looking forward to a much needed vacation in Paines Creek Beach, Cape Cod. The music professor has a penchant for solving mysteries but this time he plans to do nothing but relax. Except, fate doesn’t seem to have gotten that memo and, after a near-miss car accident, and saving the young driver, Gus is reeled in to solve a mystery! Lost treasure, centuries old family feud, hurricane and murder all lead to a very busy vacation. Great HEA and great job by the ‘new-to-me’ narrator. Now I have to catch up on the earlier mysteries!!

This is such a good audiobook! Gus and Camille LeGarde are back and go on a vacation to Paines Creek Beach in Cape Cod. They just want to spend time at the beach, dine out, relax, and enjoy alone time together. But adventure comes into their lives once again. They meet local people through circumstances and become embroiled in their troubled lives. The possibility of discovering pirate treasure adds a mysterious element.
This audiobook is packed with adventure and mystery! Gus and Camille meet new friends and also characters from the Paines Creek Beach series. I liked the crossover. Danger abounds. I could hardly wait to hear what would happen next and if they would survive. I appreciated several mysteries being woven into the plot. Of course a new villain is encountered!
Author Aaron Paul Lazar is such a wonderful writer! Narrator Pete Milan has a nice voice and gives an excellent performance too. I would highly recommend this audiobook to others. I give it a five star rating.
