Beachcomber Investigations: 4 Book Set: a Romantic Detective Series
by Stephanie Queen
The prequel to this series was set up perfectly. With all the action and suspense and a lot of twists and turns and bad guys, two people get thrown together and become unlikely partners on the shores of Martha’s Vineyard. Shana, who has a huge chip on her shoulder to prove who she is and what she’s capable of and Dane, who’s fighting a past full of danger, loss, and sadness, and a reputation of being a legend, and just wants a vacation on his beloved island. The two work together along side others to take down the people behind the kidnapping of a rich young heiress and suspicious activity surrounding the American Invitational Surfing Competition.
The back and forth interaction between Dane and Shana was hilarious, and I could almost feel the tension as their attraction was undeniable. The ending was the perfect set up for what is to come in the series, and left me wanting more of these two and which direction they will go with their attraction.
As this story progresses past the prequel, it just gets better and better, with their Investigations firm set up these two partners in business and enemies in all things relationship wise set out to keep their business afloat, while teasing and pushing each other away the whole time, yet the tension is so high you can actually feel it. The secondary characters in this book are so amazing and stay front and center throughout and make this series perfect. I love Cap and Acer and hope Acer comes back in future books, but I think my favorite is Ronnie, the stringer lol I see future stories for these characters woven into the continuing story of the dysfunctional Dane and Shana.
I was thrilled to do a search and find that there is so much more for Beachcombers Investigations and can’t wait to read all of them…I would love to see this as a series on tv, I think it would be big hit. I don’t know what the future is going to hold for these characters but I can not wait to find out. I love this author’s writing style and the flow of the book has you turning pages so fast to see what happens next, there is never a lull in the stories, always something going on and I Loved Loved Loved It!!!!
