Publisher's Summary

Engaging and quirky mystery, history, and adventure!
Underwater, everybody can hear you scream, but they can't tell where you are....
Ketch is at it again in the magical Outer Banks of North Carolina, in this new adventure from the author of Port Starbird and Port of Refuge. It's a picture-perfect summer afternoon on a pristine beach near a ghost seaport on an uninhabited island. What could go wrong? But things do, when two bodies wash ashore and Ketch stumbles upon clues that lead to the sunken treasure of an old-time buccaneer off Portsmouth Island. Ketch isn't the only one who has an interest in the treasure, and it exposes both him and his adversaries to unexpected obligations and consequences. It seems everyone has to pay the port fee....
Good guys and bad guys, boating and diving, a dash of romance, and a mysterious otherworldly presence all come together in The Port Fee, Ketch's most challenging adventure to date.

Outer Banks of N. Carolina Cozy Mystery

If you could sum up The Port Fee: A Storm Ketchum Adventure in three words, what would they be?


What did you like best about this story?

It's an easy, laid back pace of a mystery that takes place in a an easy, laid back location.

Which scene was your favorite?

I got pulled in dutifully ng the early opening of the story. The kids finding "zombies" and the gold coins. There's a mystery, there are beautiful locations. I haven't read other entries in the series but the characters are interesting too. Just don't expect edge of your seat but it's still worth the listen.

Any additional comments?

This is very laid back story, be patient though. It is entertaining. A beach read possibly.

Ward Paxton does a good job with the characterizations and pace of the story. Easy listening.

Thanks for the opportunity to review it!

This review copy audiobook was provided by the narrator at no cost. Which I can only assume was voluntary on their part. I am happy to give my honest review of it. I think I'm suppose to mention how reviewing this was voluntary on my part too.

Thank you Mr. Paxton!

Combines mystery, history, and action

I have vacationed in the beautiful Outer Banks, N.C. area and I got this book, which takes place there, to reconnect with it. I gave 5 stars for the story which is about finding sunken treasure and what happens to the characters that find it. Ketch and his family and friends seem to do a marvelous job of proving that money can't buy happiness. The author, Garrett Dennis, used to live there and brings a lot of the area's history to life, which I appreciated. And there is an otherworldly element that is both spooky and humorous. I got the audiobook version narrated by Ward Paxton, whose casual style fits the book nicely. I loved the voice he does for the fishing boat captain. There is an environmental message in the book, which I really liked because it gives hope that the area will remain unspoiled.
