The sixth book in the Murder by the Sea series by Carol Ann Ross.
Have you ever walked into a room and wondered why? We all have experienced that at some time, but what if you're a thug and you can't remember your assignment? Oops!
And then, SHE comes back.You thought she was safely locked away, tsk, tsk. Give her an inch, Estelle will take a mile, or a life.

That's me. I have a strong affinity for that entity and express those feelings through my writing--my books. They may span many genres but are all connected to the place I call home.
Genres published: historical fiction, literary, murder, essays--they all are set on Topsail Island where I grew up. It is my way of perserving this wonderful place and the people with whom I share my life.
The first book in the Murder by the Sea series is WATERLOGGED. Don Belkin is a former Marine, now a detective with the Surf City Police Dept. He's a conflicted man, to say the least, as he struggles to accept his past and find solace in the small beach town. Bitterness runs deep between the locals who have populated the area for generations and the "new" folks who think they've found paradise. Oh, Topsail Island may be the perfect tourist attraction, but in the summer it's just plain MURDER. (there are 5 more books in the series)
Is it wrong to dream, wrong to remember when life was sweeter than it is now? It's a fine line.
All These Little Things
Rae stared, mesmerized by the couples tender petting. Sighing, she woke from the spell and thought, they’re laying right on top of the rope. Rae’s mind screamed, thosekids gonna do it right on the frigging rope…but maybe…” Smiling to herself, she thought of how sweet and young the couple was and what a shame it would be to interrupt them.
