As the Hamptons drags through early spring, Cat’s shot at becoming the toast of the town in time for Memorial Day is dwindling—and fast. The only client she can find has been housebound for decades and claims to be the victim of a devasting curse. Then there’s the matter of Detective Shepherd’s intense jealousy over Maks Grinkov, the handsome bad boy who approaches Cat with an unusual offer she can’t stop thinking about. Havoc finally breaks loose when a string of murders rocks the coastal community, landing Maks on the hook as the culprit . . .
While the body count rises, Cat goes from life coaching to sleuthing for the truth about Maks’s less-than-wholesome background. But after digging deeper, she questions if Detective Shepherd had an unwitting hand in a related homicide case after tangling with the wrong people. With a storm approaching shore and no one to trust, Cat and her sharp-tongued best friend, Gilley, must solve a client’s curse and a series of violent deaths before a killer sends them all sailing to their doom . . .

Laurie has done it again with another winning series! And we get to fall in love all over again with returning character faves, Cat Cooper and Gilley Gillespie as they join forces as “besties” to become a resourceful (and hilarious) crime solving duo, taking Cat’s new digs in the Hamptons by storm. Cat is putting the finishing touches on her new home and Gilley is living in her guest house. She is trying to adjust to her life as a single woman and start up her new career as a life coach. The trouble starts almost immediately when her neighbor Heather Holland treats her with distain and then taunts her into attending a party where she is hazed in the most public way. Cat, of course, does not bother to hide her thoughts or feelings about Heather in front of the entire party.

When Heather is found dead in her home, Cat is the first suspect and another humiliation is in store when the local homicide detective decides to make an example of her. What to do? Find out who the real killer is, of course!! Combining forces with Gilley to solve the crime while simultaneously entering the dating scene … there is plenty going on and the entertainment jumps out on every page.  – Terry
