Trawling for Trouble: A Celebration Bay Mystery Novella
·  Publisher: InterMix (July 21, 2015)
·  Sold by: Penguin Group (USA) LLC 

The author of Independence Slay is back as intrepid event planner Liv Montgomery discovers something fishy going on beneath Celebration Bay’s deceptively calm surface.

Liv Montgomery knew that asking Celebration Bay’s newspaper owner-slash-ne’er-do-well Chaz Bristow to teach her how to fish meant angling for more than a lesson in sinkers and chum. Like asking him to spearhead the fund raiser that’ll benefit the town's community center. And there are worse ways to spend the afternoon than out on the town’s picturesque lake.
But it’s not long before Liv reels in a huge catch—already quite dead. It’s the body of an unknown man, and it was no accidental drowning. This floater was murdered. While local authorities investigate, it’s Liv and Chaz who stumble upon a shocking motive, and become live bait for a ruthless killer determined to keep his secrets down in the deep.

Includes exclusive previews of the next Celebration Bay mystery, Trick or Deceit, and A Gilded Grave, the first book in Shelley Freydont’s new Newport Gilded Age Mystery series.

Very fast paced and exciting! 
City girl Liv moved to small town Celebration Bay and thinks her vacation should be relaxing. When her stubborn can-do-it-all nature gets her invited to take fishing lessons from the equally charming and disgusting newspaperman Chaz, both are surprised at how unrelaxing the day turns out. Life on the water can be very dangerous but dry land isn't all that safe either. A wonderful cast of quirky characters, an adorable Westie, and surprises and danger at every turn.

I am looking forward to reading more about these people.
Loved the preview excerpts at the end!
