Engulfed - Kathleen M. Cosgrove
Engulfed is 99 cents for the kindle, but free for Amazon prime members. This novel is a great murder mystery and so much more. Prepare to laugh your butt off, and not be able to put down this book. Maggie Finn is a 50 something reporter (gossip columnist) from Albuquerque. Maggie's in Florida to help her parents move from a house to an assisted living facility called Shell Harbor. She hates the heat, the humidity, and the rain. Basically she hates Florida. While Maggie is at the Shells, checking out the facility, a body is discovered. Or at least the parts not still in an alligator are discovered. Maggie's secret desire to be an investigative reporter takes over and the adventure begins. Con men, drug dealers, drag queens, mob assassins, aging hippies, and cute police detectives all keep this boisterous murder mystery going. Even when Maggie is close to dying, and that seems to happen a lot, the humor keeps on coming. This is a read everyone should enjoy. Very highly recommended.
