It’s 1926. The West Coast Development Company is staging its biggest land deal in Homosassa, Florida, selling pieces of a planned city to speculators who dream of a tropical paradise. Army nurse Cornelia Pettijohn takes leave to travel to Florida with her ancient uncle, who claims that he wants a warm winter home. When their car breaks down, they take the local train, The Mullet Express, into Homosassa. By the time they arrive, though, a passenger has been poisoned. A second murder victim boards the train later, iced down with the fish. Uncle Percival’s hidden agenda makes him the sheriff’s prime suspect. Cornelia and Teddy Lawless, a twenty-year-old flapper in a body pushing sixty, must chase mobsters and corner suspects to dig her uncle out of the hole he’s dug for himself.
FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
Cornelia, her Uncle Percival, and her friend Teddy are on an adventure to search out new land to buy. While on this adventure a series of deaths begin popping up and they are on the search for who was behind these deaths. They are dragged into danger when the Uncle becomes an interest to some unsavory characters and soon he is a suspect in the murder.
This book was easy to read and interesting. It was fast paced and enjoyable. It had a colorful set of characters and was full of mystery and suspense. I absolutely loved Teddy and Cornelia. They were funny and added a light and fun feel to this book. Cornelia is very strong minded and determined, while Teddy is a bit of a party girl. Together they solve the crimes and make a great story. Overall this book was good and I really enjoyed it.
