Publisher's Summary

Everybody loves Dolly Beaugard....
At least that's what Maine college professor and amateur sleuth Sarah Deane always thought. But when Dolly's bloated body washes ashore on the same spot as the drunken Gattling brothers the day before, the police rule homicide. Unfortunately for Sarah, she and her doctor-husband Alex have a local reputation for sharp-eyed detection, so Dolly's sister, Alice, who doesn't trust the police, insists they get involved.
Sarah and Alex begin to discover that the connection between the reviled Gattlings and the reputable Beaugards is surprisingly close. And even though her family all depended on Dolly to keep their finances in order, some things just don't add up. Sarah and Alex's only hope is to find out who knew Dolly's secrets-and who might be next on the killer's hit list.

Wish I hadn't used the Credit

Would you try another book from J. S. Borthwick and/or Chris Thurmond?

No. I absolutely could not get "into" the story and the reading was ....well, I didn't like it at all. Maybe if the narrator had been different I could have finished the story. I tried for<br/>almost 4 hours (not at one time...just couldn't continue), but finally gave up.

What could J. S. Borthwick have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I didn't like the characters and the story seemed to jump around enough for me not to continue.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Chris Thurmond?

I can't even think. I don't think I liked the story enough to consider another narrator.<br/>I thought of Barbara Rosenblat, but don't think she'd WANT to read this.

What character would you cut from Dolly Is Dead?

Alice....but the way the reader <br/>"read" her, SHE sounded dead.

Any additional comments?

Could not finish the first part.
