    9. This is my first read by Ms Hunter but it will not be my last Besides the fact that she is a really good writer, she is a winner on two fronts 1 she writes mysteries and 2 she writes about the coast of NC specifically the Wilmington area The story moves quickly and definitely held my interest There are multiple story lines that although you don t realize it merge together Needless to say I did not figure the who dun it and was surprised by the outcome.You should give Ms Hunter a try I believe y [...]

In this the third of the Ashley Wilkes cozy mysteries, Ashley and her sister are staying in a rented beachhouse when they find the body of a beloved art gallery owner And she s in a gallery that has had all of the art stolen, including the newest painting of a famous local artist As usual, this is only the first murder Melanie and Jon are back, but the rest of the usual cast is missing, since the sisters are on vaction Altho, since both are than a bit workaholic, don t really believe that.

    11. This 4th book in the series has historic preservationist Ashley Wilkes staying at a beach house her sister rented While the view is great the company seems to be much less desirable Missing paintings, art gallery owner murdered, mysterious comings and goings, a bon fire, and a family home in need of a blessing all add up to another interesting story Ashley s personal life and friendship with her partner Jon take unexpected and devastating turns Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    14. Murder at Wrightsville beachWonderful,well written cozy mystery by Ellen Elizabeth Hunter.It continues the story of sisters Melanie and Ashley Wilkes Two very different sisters but always there for each other.The story got better and better as it went along The author but a lot of twists and turns into the mystery The murderer was not even on my radar as the killer.Enjoyable and fun read.

    15. Definitely my favorite of the series so far I enjoyed this because it was a pretty brainless, quick flowing, light read with characters I enjoy Just a good cozy to break up some heavier reading I have been doing.

    16. after all that, the only thing that remotely caught my interest was the love triangle between the main charater, her husband, and her best friend I may read the next one just to see if she leaves Nick for John Other than that I would not classify this as a cozy.

    17. this book drags and drags and drags most of the time I quit on those kinds of books, and I should have quit on this one.

    18. Fun readI rated this book a five because not only does the author give the reader a true sense of place but her characters are also interesting Thank you.

    19. MarvelousCouldn t stop reading this book It kept me interested and intrigued I was glad Ashley chose Jon over Nick They deserve each other.

    20. I got this Kindle edition on sale, and while it wasn t my favorite in the series, it provided some good history of the series characters, since I m not reading them in order.

    21. Had a hard time getting interested, but finally started to understand the story, It started with a mystery within the first few pages, but continued to be boring through out.

    22. Number 3 in a series of fun and quick reads Although the plots are thin, I ve actually learned quite a bit about Wilmington, NC by reading them.

    23. This was a good cozy mystery and I enjoyed it, even though it started slow A very good unexpected ending.
