Maisie Swenson is thrilled that she landed her dream job as a manager at the ritzy Oceanside Hotel. Part of the reason she wanted to move to Florida was to keep an eye on her mother. If that wasn’t enough, in her spare time, Maisie is an aspiring mystery writer.
One of her first assignments is to organize and manage a Comic-Con convention. As a crowd of cosplayers descend on the hotel, Maisie must ensure things run smoothly. However, this proves difficult when she finds the gaming tycoon, Norman Olsen, dead in the hotel pool. When Olsen’s death is a homicide, Maisie catches heat from her boss.
Maisie puts on her amateur detective hat to try and find the killer, regain order, save her job, and maybe even her life.
I thought this is an amusing read. Maisie, her friends, and mother are entertaining characters, and I look forward to getting to know them better. This is a great poolside/beach/relaxing read.
CeeCee James has written several other books including fictional cozy mysteries and non-fiction as well.
