Has series potential

As someone very familiar with Nantucket, I was interested in the setting authenticity, which I found a bit lacking: mention of cobblestone streets and whaling port history was something one could have gotten off a cursory internet glance. Honestly, I didn't get the impression that the cousins had much of an island background at all. I came away feeling that the story could've just as easily been set at say, Mystic or Kennebunkport. But, that's me; most folks have never been there, so shouldn't be as much of an issue for them.

I cut slack for the first book in a series as they're usually more about the set up than the mystery angle itself. I will say the characters were easily distinguished, rather than stock, and the plotting was decent in terms of propelling the action along. Lin's cousin was perhaps the weakest as she came across as a tad ... wimpy to me. I'm not a dog person, but was fond of Lin's sidekick Nicky (could be the artwork there though). I appreciated the resolution quite a lot, and after reading a review that said the second book is stronger, I'm open to trying another.

Narration fit the story overall, although at times I felt the "local" accent sounded almost as though it more Tidewater Virginia than New England (then again, they were settled at the same time).

Sweetly Haunted

I loved the spooky feeling to the mystery of this story. I really enjoyed Lin and Viv looking for the murderer and the overall feel to the story. Suzie had a great voice to add to the story and made it all feel a bit more haunted.
