I am in so much pain from my first day at the new gym that I can barely even walk. I didn’t even push myself that hard. I know once I start moving around the pain will decrease a bit and I will be able to do another workout today. The getting started is the worst part. If they are doing leg day again today I think I might die. Nope… I will not let a little pain stop me. I will go today, shuffle through the workout, and try really hard not to cry. There’s no crying at the gym right? I bet plenty of people cry at the gym. No no… I will move slow and not cry. Maybe if I cry now I won’t cry later. Hahaha… oh man.

A missing groom — a deconsecrated church — a hidden crypt — a skeleton wrapped in a blanket

When a skeleton is discovered in the hidden crypt of a deconsecrated church, everyone is convinced the bones must be those of Conor Devitt, a local man who went missing on his wedding day six years previously. But the postmortem reveals otherwise.

Solicitor Benedicta “Ben” O’Keeffe is acting for the owners of the church. She is reluctant to get involved, but when Conor’s brother dies in strange circumstances shortly after coming to see her, she finds herself drawn into the mystery. Whose is the skeleton in the crypt and how did it get there? Is Conor Devitt still alive, and if so, is there a link? What happened on the morning of his wedding to make him disappear?

Negotiating between the official investigation — headed up by the handsome but surly Sergeant Tom Molloy — and obstructive locals with secrets of their own, Ben unravels layers of personal and political history to get to the truth of what happened six years before.

Death at Whitewater Church is the first in a series of Ben O’Keeffe mysteries set on the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal, Ireland.

by Margaret Lashley
4.4 Stars (2,128 Reviews)
Genre: Humor & Satire | Foreign Languages

FREE for a limited time

A Midlife Meltdown Leads to Southern-Fried Mayhem in this Hilarious and Heartfelt Mystery Series.

After being duped out of her life savings in Germany, Val Fremden retreats home to Florida with more than just her pride in tatters. At 45, she’s broke, divorced, and virtually unemployable. Starting over will be tough enough as it is. But when her only friend suddenly turns up dead, Val begins to seriously wonder if the world is out to get her.

Maybe it is…
The sugar-white sands of Sunset Beach attract weirdos like mosquitoes to a bug zapper. So when the will of Val’s friend makes the local newspaper, lunatics and con artists stumble from their beach shacks to scuffle for a piece of the leftover pie.

Determined to find her friend’s true heir, Val reluctantly turns to three crackpots for help — a drunk, a redneck, and a snarky beach bum. Working at odds with each other, their bumbling investigation attracts the attention of a hot cop. He quickly gets into the fray and under Val’s skin. Whether it’s in a good way or bad only time will tell. Because sometimes, it’s not until you reach the bottom of the barrel that you find out who your true friends are.

Love your mysteries with a side of snide? The Val Fremden Midlife Mysteries are for you! Get set for a wickedly witty slide down the social ladder with a surprising cast of unexpected misfits!

If you love slightly edgier cozy mysteries like Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum or Jana Deleon’s Fortune Redding, you’ll probably find yourself resonating with Val Fremden, too. She’s a lovable, bungling mess who’s a bit older, a tad more jaded, and a ton more experienced in big-time failure. Life’s been tough for Val. Still, she always manages to find her way with sardonic humor and an intrepid spirit. A gin and tonic now and then helps, too.

Life’s a beach and then you die. If you’re ready for a good laugh and a great mystery, check out Glad One. Funny Florida mysteries don’t get any wackier — or truly heartfelt.
