An Angela Walker Cozy Mystery set in Florida
Angie Walker is a few days from fulfilling a lifelong dream of being her own boss. Soon she and her best friend will open a treasure/antique business on Florida's east coast.
But as a reporter for the Tequesta Sun, she has one last assignment - interview former boss Frederick Canterly about his five-decade career as publisher of the Madera Beach Tribune.
The interview should be a piece of cake, but her former boss very inconveniently drops dead.
Police believe he's been poisoned, and detectives find an incriminating vial in Angie's purse. Now instead of opening the door to her business dream, she may open the door to a prison nightmare.
With the help of longtime friend and reporter Harry Landon, she begins a desperate search for the shrewd killer who framed her.
Canterly made enemies during his time in Madera Beach. Many people hated him, with good reason. Even Landon had an opportunity and a very good motive to kill the Madera Beach publisher.
While keeping her eye on her good friend Harry, Angie will have to shift through the evidence and find the ruthless murderer.
In doing so she will also become a target. Unless she is careful, intelligent, and ruthless, Canterly will not be the only murder victim in this small, tightly knit community.

Entertaining start to a new series
Yes, because the mystery is entertaining and fun. The narrator's voice is easy to listen to.
I liked Angie as she is capable of looking after herself. She gets angry instead of crying when her life is threatened and she doesn't hesitate in shooting her gun when the occasion demands it.
I liked the gallows humour running through the story.

I liked that the female protagonist had interests and was thinking ahead about her future employment opportunities rather than just letting circumstances direct her.
I found the description and attitude toward the "murder" victim, who is depicted as morbidly obese, offensive and insensitive. This is the type of attitude and interaction that adds to the misery of many who struggle with problems with achieving healthy eating habits. Calling someone "Fatty" as a nickname is indicative of an inconsiderate nature...very unappealing.
A good editor would help make the presentation more enjoyable.
The narration was satisfactory.
I would not go see this book made into a movie. I really like stories in which I learn something new or meet a character I enjoy, admire or can be warned about ! I just couldn't believe in Angie ( a grown woman, depicted as a bright entrepeneur) who does "cheerleader kicks" and calls people childish names.
