Book Description:

Amelia Moore, the founder of the Moore Detective Agency, specializes in missing persons. With the help of her partner, Rick Bonito, the business is flourishing. Rick Bonito's uncle supposedly drowned five years ago and his body was never found, but something did not seem right about the report. Uncle Antonio was an excellent swimmer. His disappearance seems quite suspicious to Rick's father. He never felt the complete truth had come out about his brother. It is now up to Amelia and rick to find out the truth about his uncle.

My Review:
Reviewed by Sandra Olshaski

This is book 7 in the Amelia Moore Detective Series and as usual, the author delivers a delightful, fairly fast-paced tale in the pursuit of a missing person, for that's what Amelia's agency specializes in. This time it is personal, as Rick's uncle Antonio Bonito dies in suspicious circumstances at the age of 48. Amelia and Rick are on the hunt for an answer. But what do lighthouses have to do with his disappearance?

The reader gets a glimpse into the warm, lively Italian Bonito family that Amelia has married into. They seem to be ordinary people, but as in every family, there are secrets that gradually become unravelled.

Each of the previous six books in the series has revealed bits and parts of Rick and Amelia; this book is no different, as the reader comes to understand why Rick is so zealous about his gym appointments. And why Amelia savours being part of her new family. The character development is complete with this latest and last tale about Amelia and Rick.

The reader gets a brief education into lighthouses, their importance in the past and the interesting uses they have today.

I enjoyed learning about Palm Springs, California, the home of many Hollywood starts of the past like Elvis, Bing Crosby, Cary Grant, and Bob Hope.

I wholeheartedly recommend this cozy mystery. I'm going to miss Amelia and Rick, but wish them well!

Sandra Olshaski's disclosure: Thanks to the author for sending me this book for review. I was not compensated in any other way, nor told how to rate or review this book.
