Cranberry Island in Maine sounds like a beautiful place, unfortunately people keep ending up dead. In Dead and Berried, the second in the continuing saga of the Grey Whale Inn's owner, Natalie Barnes, her ex-fiance comes to try to win her back, a woman staying in the B&B is trying to learn how to run an inn, a ghost, a 100 year old murder, and Polly, the woman who helps out with the laundry and light housekeeping, ends up dead in the bog. Oh yeah, and then there are the obligatory developers trying to buy up the bog and build a development.
Because the local policeman declares that Polly killed herself, Natalie decides to do some investigating on her own. When a second person ends up dead, Natalie becomes a suspect and must try to clear her name and solve both murders.
I read the first installment, Murder on the Rocks, last year and liked the characters and the story. I liked Dead and Berried, even more than I liked Murder on the Rocks.
