Buckle up for hours of laughter, romance, and excitement with this Jersey Shore Mystery. 
When handsome detective, Bryce Kelly, is accused of a crime he didn’t commit, he finds himself on the run and in hiding. Can amateur sleuth, Chelsey Alton, and a few quirky friends help him find the real killer and prove his innocence before it’s too late? If you love mysteries, don’t miss this humorous whodunit!
Coral Beach Village should not be a hotbed for murder but there do seem to be an extraordiary number of bodies piling up. This time it is a young police chief found murdered the day after his retirement party. So many questions. Why was he retiring? Who had grievances against him? Could it be related to a past case or a rival for a future job?
The means of the murder was rage filled and personal.

Detective Bryce Kelly is a person of interest in the chief's murder. Found in front of the body, covered in blood and then runing from the scene does not make him look innocent. Can he trust any of his plice brothers to help him clear his name? He turns to a friend he has not seen in a while, Chelsey Alton, a not-so-experienced sleuth without the resources his department has to offer. What other choice does he have?
Chelsey manages to dig up a lot of secrets on a lot of people. Can she clear Bryce's name?

Meanwhile, Chelsey's personal life is getting messier by the moment.
Will that throw out obstacles to her working on Bryce's case?
There is no shortage of clues and red herrings, suspects and motives.
The only thing they are short on is time.
Full of grit and humor and intrigue, an enjoyable way to spend a few hours getting lost.
I can't wait tosee how Chelsey gets out of the situation she finds herself in at the end.
