Killing Time in Ocean City

After being jolted from a sound sleep by police early in her vacation, Meg Daniels discovers that her former boss has turned up dead near her rented beach house in Ocean City, New Jersey. A series of suspicious circumstances turn Meg into a prime suspect in his murder, and the evidence against her seems to be mounting every minute.

Cape Mayhem

Meg Daniels arrives in Cape May for what should have been a romantic off-season holiday, but instead finds herself in the middle of a mystery. Overnight, a certain female guest at the Parsonage Bed & Breakfast has undergone an impossible transformation. Suspecting foul play, Meg enlists a hunky investigator in the local DA’s office, as well as the B&B’s spunky co-owner, to help her.

Wrong Beach Island

Meg never had the displeasure of meeting Dallas Spenser, but when the body of the prosperous Brit washes up on Long Beach Island with a bullet in the back, it immediately derails her romantic vacation plans. She and her significant other, P.I. Andy Beck, had hoped to be sailing the Caribbean by now, but Spenser’s murder presents some serious obstacles.

While Andy slaves away at a hotel-casino security job, Meg is doing her best to sleep late, limit her exercise, and get plenty of sand between her toes. Too much free time on this gals hands always spells trouble, and on this trip it comes courtesy of Johnny Angelini, an Atlantic City lounge singer who was just an infant in 1964 when his mother disappeared without a trace. Meg hits the Boardwalk running to solve the 50-year-old case and bring some closure for Johnny.

A woman recognizes Meg as the amateur sleuth who recently solved a mysterious disappearance from the 1960s, and she asks for help in learning the fate of the sister she last knew as a 19-year-old who ran away from her Ventnor home in 1968.
