“Too late” isn’t a factor for Isabel Puddles—until the clock starts ticking on a deadly mystery in the cozy town of Gull Harbor, Michigan...
Isabel is living life on her terms as summer stirs the peaceful shores of Lake Michigan. Only slowing down to meet her oldest friend for daily coffee, the newly licensed PI has found herself chipping away at the college degree she never completed—and, to her surprise, eagerly awaiting letters from her pen pal, an admired British mystery writer. But when her latest client turns out to be an extravagant recluse who’s rich both in secrets and money, Isabel becomes embroiled in the strange world of Rust Belt royalty and the Memorial Day Weekend disappearance of a handsome young heir.
Beyond the famous family name and ugly rumors surrounding her, Abigail Bachmeier is an enigma. With one great nephew presumed dead after vanishing off the side of a ferry, Abigail makes the strange request to locate another missing relative. As Isabel investigates and gets closer to revealing at least one more possible murder, she begins to suspect yet another life could soon be in terrible danger—her own.

This second book in the Isabel Puddles series is welcome. Although Isabel has put some of her side jobs aside, she keeps busy with her friends and neighbors AND going back to college and getter her private investigators license. Because she is well-known in her home town as the one who solved a previous mystery, she is contacted by a member of the most reclusive inhabitant's staff to solve a family mystery.. A great homage to the upper mid-west, quirky small-towns and their characters. The only thing that could improve these books is to include the pattern Isabel uses to knit her scarves. . A quck, but most entertaining read..
