Drue Campbell's life is adrift. Out of a job and down on her luck, life doesn't seem to be getting any better when her estranged father, Brice Campbell, a flamboyant personal injury attorney, shows up at her mother's funeral after a twenty-year absence. Worse, he's remarried - to Drue's eighth grade frenemy, Wendy, now his office manager. And they're offering her a job which she grudgingly accepts. On the bright side, Drue has inherited her grandparents Sunset Beach bungalow. But then a suspicious death occurs at a beach resort, exposing possible corruption at her father's firm and making Drue an unwitting investigator. With a budding office romance, a decades-old missing persons case reopened, and a cottage in rehab, one thing is for sure at Sunset Beach - there's a storm on the horizon.

This is the second Mary Kay Andrews book and I really enjoy reading her books. When I read the description I was intrigued: who can resist a beach read with a 40 year old mystery and a murder. I was hooked when I read the acknowledgement when Ms. Andrews talked about St. Petersburg, Florida, where I lived most of my life. “Sunset Beach” is a great book that will have you reading into all hours of the night to figure out the mystery to the murders. It was fun to read about places that I have visited and, oh my gosh, Maas Brothers, Central Plaza, and many of my old stomping grounds. Cannot wait to read more of Ms. Andrews books.

I just finished sunset beach. In Epilogue there was a name I never or cannot remember seeing in the book. Can anyone tell me who Corey is?

'Sunset Beach' was not what I expected, especially from the cover, but I enjoyed it immensely.

'Sunset Beach' may be a beach read but it is not a light, fluffy beach story; it's a mystery that takes place at a beach.

It's fun to see MKA expand her beach horizons to include some mystery depth, in this case two mysteries, with all the beauty of the beach.

Unfortunately, the 36 year old heroine of the story sounded and acted a bit too much like a petulant 18 yr old. I found that off-putting. However I feel MKA left the door open to more mystery sequels. If that's the case, perhaps Drue will mature into her age.

I was most disappointed in Ms Anderson's latest offering. It fell short in the characterization and wit, for which she known to excel. I'll wait very patiently for her next one, with fingers crossed that she, does better.

Anderws just keeps knocking her books out of the park. Great read! Probably the best beach read I've read to date.

This new release has much more substance than the cover communicates. I was impressed that there were actually two mysteries in the book and we got to the bottom of both within the span of the narrative. Drue was a bit rough around the edges, but she has had some tough breaks. The beach house itself is a substantial piece of the plot and if those walls could talk. . . Includes some scrumptious-looking recipes at the end and some tips on choosing your very own beach house. There were a couple of unsatisfactory plot holes for me, but I would definitely recommend this for a beach read.
