Book Overview

THE BODY IN THE BEACH HOUSE IS DEAD AS A DOORNAIL. Summer's coming, and Island Contracting's all-woman construction crew is working overtime, glitzing up the old house on the north end of the island. Then the firm's owner, redheaded Josie Pigeon, discovers a murdered body under a drop cloth-- a body that vanishes as mysteriously as it appears. With a complicated job to finish and clients who'd bring out the killer in anyone, Josie doesn't need a murderer...

Remodeling is murder

A good cozy. First of the Josie Pigeon series (she was introduced in a "Susan Henshaw" book). The book moves along well, keeps you guessing. And, knowing what it's like to be a year-'rounder at a summer resort community, this is a pretty good depiction of island life. Later books in the series expand on Josie, her life, and the lives of her crew and friends.

Required my intense concentration; OH JOY!

Josie Pigeon is the surprise owner of an all woman construction company. Why the surprise along with the peculiar behavior and lifestyles of her inherited crew all combine to keep you (and Josie) guessing... Who was murdered? Where did the body go? Why is the good looking, retired prosecuting attorney so helpful? What is sexy Betty thinking working on the roof in her bikini? Looking forward to finding my next Josie Pigeon mystery and learning more about her absent son(author is such a tease). Sounds like an intriguing story too! Fun read.

Josie Pigeon is a different kind of sleuth

I found the premise of this mystery interesting. Josie Pigeon heads an all woman construction company. She finds a body on a job site and soon after it disappears. Josie is determined to find the body and the killer. She enlists the help of a newcomer to the island. He owns the liquor store, but was formerly a prosecuting attorney. Every one is a suspect, including the construction crew. All of them seem to have a secret!


A fun read! Perhaps a little longer than necessary. When the mystery is revealed at the end, it's a little hard to put back together who did what to whom and why, but it was an entertaining book none the less. I'll read the next one in the series.

REAL Construction Mystery!

As a former foreman of an all woman pipefitting crew, I can say this author is *RIGHT ON* when it comes to describing the personalities in her crew. The descriptions of the house and the work being done were outstanding - Josie is my new heroine. I'll "shore" be reading more!
