What could go wrong with starting over in a tropical paradise?

Life in San Francisco was getting too expensive, too hectic, and too crowded for recently divorced Dana Kirkpatrick.

When this big-city girl inherited a beach house in a coastal Costa Rica town, she took it as a sign and packed her bags.

Dana imagined the small beach town would have its challenges, but she never could have predicted legal troubles, local wildlife, and being adopted by a stray cat.

And now she's suspected of murder!

It's not quite the fresh start she envisioned when she moved to the tropical paradise beach community of Mariposa Beach.

When Dana Kirkpatrick inherits a Costa Rican beach house from her uncle, the newly divorced woman decides to leave her old life behind and move to Costa Rica. Unfortunately, her cousin, Roy, and his wife are contesting the will. Then Roy is killed, and Dana’s the main suspect.

A Beach House to Die for was like a mini-vacation. It was sunny and relaxed and the foods sounded delicious, but I think the howler monkeys might drive me crazy. Most of the locals were friendly and helpful.

Dana was a good lead character. She’s friendly and nice, but pushy enough to get answers. The mystery was fine. I didn’t guess who the killer was but probably should have.

This was a fun, light read, which is what I expect from a cozy. It has a fabulous setting, quirky characters, a potential love interest, and even a cat.
