Murder is Delivered BB 1.png

Esther and Sophie didn’t know there would be a multiple-choice test when they arrived at the Victorian library of Oceanside High, or that the person with the answers would die before breakfast was served. 


It was twilight when the school board met to hear the head librarian’s complaint of harassment and argue about tearing down the gothic school and replacing it with a new school of glass and steel outside the Tsunami zone. Before they cast the final vote, two of Esther’s friends become suspects in a murder investigation. To catch a killer and save their friends, Esther and Sophie join the board at a retreat center and haunted house.


No one could have predicted how the vote would go, or the storm that would trap the girls with a killer, while another breakfast was about to be served.


If you love Nancy Drew and Agatha Christie, you will love Esther and Sophie in the By The Sea Cozy Mysteries!
