The third installment in Sherry Harris’s Agatha Award-nominated series finds former Chicago librarian Chloe Jackson loving her new life as a bartender in Florida…until a surprise visit from her Windy City ex-fiancé ends with him blown away in the Panhandle!

Saloon owner Chloe Jackson appears to have a secret admirer. She’s pouring drinks at the Sea Glass Saloon in Emerald Cove when an airplane flies by above the beach with a banner reading I LOVE YOU CHLOE JACKSON. She immediately rules out Rip Barnett. They are in the early stages of dating and no one has said the L word. Then a bouquet of lilacs—her favorite flower—is delivered to the bar, followed by an expensive bottle of her favorite sparkling wine. It couldn’t be…
Sure enough, her ex-fiancé from Chicago has flown down to Florida for an accountants’ convention. But is he trying to mix business with pleasure and win her back? Unfortunately he’s not in a hotel conference room, he’s floating facedown in the lake next to her house, clutching a photo of Chloe. Who murders an accountant on a business trip—it just doesn’t add up. When Rip becomes the prime suspect, Chloe is determined to find the secret murderer. But if she isn’t careful, it may be closing time and lights out for her…

A spine-tingling mystery that will give you the perfect beachy escape to cure your winter blues!

Love is in the air...quite literally. Chloe Jackson has a secret admirer, one who even commissioned a plane to fly a banner reading, I love you Chloe Jackson. When Chloe finds out her ex is in town, she suspects he's trying to win her back. But when he turns up dead, floating face-down in the lake by her house, Chloe turns her investigation from finding a secret admirer to finding a secret murderer.

Another delightful installment in the Sea Glass Saloon Mysteries! Harris strikes the perfect balance between murder and romance. I can't wait for more books in the series.

I absolutely love this series, and this book was one of my favorites.
Chloe is shocked to learn that her ex-fiance is in town to win her back, but before she can confront him, his body washes up near her house. With no other suspects, Detectives look at Rip, the current boyfriend who must be so jealous he kills the ex=fiance. But, Chloe knows better, and sets out to figure out exactly what happened. As always, her sleuthing leads her into trouble.
The characters in this series are awesome, this plot was great, and as always, I couldn't put it down. Already looking forward to the next one in the series.
I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Chloe Jackson is working at the Sea Glass bar just like any other day. But soon this day becomes one to remember, and not for all the right reasons. It seems someone is trying to woo and romance Chloe, but she’s not quite sure who it is at first, but after the plane fly over with a banner declaring their love for Chloe, then a delivery of her favorite flowers and wine, she knows it’s her ex. When the day ends with her ex dead and her current flame the prime suspect, Chloe vows to find the real killer.

Even with her brothers showing up to protect her, Chloe finds ways to keep sleuthing. It seems a lot of women who had relationships with her ex, Perry, are also in town…then there’s a little family secret Chloe stumbles on and the field of suspects gets even bigger. Can Chloe clear Rip of the accusations before he’s charged for something he didn’t do and set Perry to rest? She hopes so, and she hopes to do it while remaining on this side with Rip.

A great series. I really enjoy Sherry Harris’ work and faithfully read all of her series. She’s that good! If you haven’t read one of her books yet, this is a great way to start. While a series, each one can be read as a standalone, though you’ll want to read the others once you’re done. Settle in and enjoy some warm weather in Florida’s panhandle and throw in a tropical drink and you’re set.
