“The Death on Demand mysteries take place on Broward’s Rock, an island in South Carolina, where Annie Darling owns the mystery bookstore (Death on Demand) and her husband Max runs “Confidential Commissions” (not an investigative agency since he doesn’t have his PI license). In this newest book in the series, Shell Hurst disappears during a Fourth of July dance. Shell is beautiful and haughty, the type of woman hated by other women, and loved by most of their men. Where has she gone and what happened to her? And why does no one seem to care? Who’s to blame? The husband she’s cheating on, his jealous ex-wife, his unhappy son, the man she is having an affair with, his ill wife, one of the other people she has managed to cross? As always, Annie and Max dash in to figure it out. Nothing extraordinary here, but a fun visit to familiar characters and visions of warm weather and sandy beaches.
