I just love this series Set on Martha s Vineyard, our amateur sleuth former Boston cop family man is at it again He moves through the wonderful places on the island with his small children in tow This time it s a series of arsons that are the mystery to be solved Entertaining for sure This was an easy to read, good mystery I was able to get into enjoying the references to familiar surroundings Wasn t able to solve the mystery, which is always a plus I have purchased two of the authors other Martha s Vineyard mysteries and will be anxious to read them in future. Best Philip R Craig yet. I had forgotten how much I enjoy these. Very interesting detailed story set in Martha s Vineyard The Jackson family is endearing without being saccharine sweet J.W Is the perfect ex cop super sleuth Realistic, but not perfect The background setting is so vivid, you almost feel as if you are right there I will definitely be revisiting this series. I like this series, a cozy written by a man I am just sorry Philip Craig died recently, no books
