A peaceful morning at the beach with a client turns gruesome when counselor Patience Price’s client’s daughter finds a human ear in the sand. Patience’s first thought is that the mob boss out for revenge on her FBI Special Agent boyfriend is getting close to his current position on Pony Island. Sebastian, too, fears the same and tries to keep his distance from Patience in order to keep her safe. But, as more body parts are discovered on the shore, and Patience teams up with her ex-boyfriend, Adrian, to try and figure out who might be behind the crimes, it becomes increasingly clear that whoever is killing and cutting up victims is after Patience…and is getting closer.
Murder Comes Ashore is the second book in the Patience Price Counselor at Large trilogy, and it lives up to the level of excellence in the first book. An admirable balance of humor, suspense, romance, and mystery. Yet another great story from Julie Anne Lindsey!
