Merry is the daughter of the local police chief and granddaughter of his predecessor; her father is a strict boss and Merry feels pressure to go the extra mile to prove her promotion to detective isn't just nepotism. But the Mason murder is a demanding first test.
Merry's investigation brings to light all the tensions that plague the tiny community of Nantucket: the decades-old grudges; the skyrocketing real estate that only wealthy weekenders can afford; the resentments of the old Nantucket families who are barely keeping their homes and heritage fishing businesses alive. But Merry knows the island and its politics in a way only a local can.

Loved the Nantucket References!
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed all the Nantucket references. They made me feel like I was really on the island. The murder mystery was very good and it kept me guessing till the end. The end (not the ending) was a problem... too abrupt, needed more story to tie up some loose ends. It left you wondering about too many things. If this was a series then that would be OK, but I don't think it is.

An excellent book for a relaxing weekend.
A compelling story, it held my interest. I recommend it. Perhaps not a masterpiece, but very good. I will definitely listen to the next book in the series, and hope for more in the future.
