Spoiled, rich party girl Taffy Belair is in trouble. Again. This time her grandmother is banishing her to a small coastal town in Oregon to clean up her act.

Cut off from familiar luxuries and expected to work and take care of a house and herself, Taffy could care less about fitting into the quirky town of Abandon.

Without her posse of girls or even good coffee, let alone a party scene, she starts stirring up new trouble. Hunky handyman Ethan is a good start. But when she stumbles over a possible murder, Taffy transforms from party girl to amateur detective.

Now she’s getting into more trouble than she ever did back in New York. She’s unearthing secrets and upsetting the locals. Is this quaint seaside enclave really the “Sweetest Town on the Coast,” or is it rotten to the core?

With the help of new friends, Taffy must risk her life to expose a conspiracy and capture a killer before the town’s body count increases by a factor of one stylish blonde (in need of a manicure).

Fans of Stephanie Plum and humorous cozy murder mysteries, don’t miss this hilarious and heartfelt fish-out-of-water mystery starring somewhat-reformed party girl Taffy Belair


Taffy was getting in trouble again, when her Nana decided to whip her into shape and teach her a lesson.  Having been rich all her life and wanting for nothing, Taffy found herself in the middle of no where living in a house that some was in her opinion, murdered in.  Everyone is a suspect, from the familiar police woman, to the repair man and even the hunky Ethan that had been there to greet her when she came into town.  The town holds many secrets, but Taffy wasn’t sure how close to home those secrets were.

I really enjoyed this book, I couldn’t put it down.  It’s a fun read with a lot of great characters.  All the time I was reading it, I was so glad to know this is a series, I want to read more about Taffy and her family and friends.  I highly recommend.  A great read!
