Book 1 - The Long Island Iced Tea Goodbye
Heather Hampton, a middle-aged, freshly divorced fashion journalist from Long Island, arrives in Dolphin Cove, New Zealand to start a new life as a beach café owner and a cocktail maker extraordinaire, not to battle a grumpy live-in chef-cum-baker, rescue feral kittens and find bodies and skeletons in cupboards. But when she is accused of poisoning her chef, she has no choice, but to get involved and find out what really happened.
With the help, and sometimes against, a semi-retired police officer and a rescue kitten, Heather discovers a few secrets, makes a couple of friends and almost ends up on a date.
But, more importantly, will she guess who the murderer is? Can you beat her to it?
Book 2 - The Name of the Rose Water Spritzer
Heather and Josephine are preparing for a garden party: just a few local friends, Josephine’s finger food, Heather’s cocktails, and a little gossip. The party is ruined by rain, but there is something much more sinister happening by the new beach huts… And when the next morning Heather finds a dead body in one of the huts, the investigation begins.
Who killed Rose Waters? Was there poison on her fingertips? And why is Josephine behaving so strangely?
Book 3 - To Kill the Jungle Bird
Heather Hampton, a beach café owner and mixologist extraordinaire gets entangled in yet another murder mystery.
Her friend and employee, Chrissy, flees a violent argument with her ex, only to discover the next morning that he's been stabbed and the murder weapon is in Chrissy's car. Did Chrissy kill her ex-partner? If not her, then who?
Book 4 - Beach Paradise Colour Scheme
As the summer approaches, Career Crisis Café is preparing for an influx of guests. But things are far from perfect, the business is still limping, and a body is found in a hot tub on the property next door. The resemblance to a well-known Kiwi murder mystery is uncanny, but Heather won't realize it until the very end.
Who killed Mr. Berry? Where is Gordon Archer? Can Heather and Josephine make the café business work?
Ah, and most importantly, will Heather and James ever kiss?
