Death by Bikini by Linda Gerber

Death by Bikini (Death By Mysteries, #1)I decided to reread this mystery, so I could move on to the other books in the series. I gave it a rating of 4 out of 5. It's a classic who-done-it that keeps the reader guessing. Aphra's father runs a private resort on a remote island. A family using assumed names unexpectedly arrives, and they are clearly not typical guests. Then, the girlfriend of a rock star is strangled on the beach, but who did it? Could the killer be a member of the family? Is it the mysterious Mr. Watts? How about the botanist visiting the island? Is there someone else? The suspense builds when Aphra's father is poisoned and seems to by dying. And how is Aphra's mother, gone for the past four years, involved in this whole mess?

This is a great mystery for readers who are new to mysteries. It's easy to read, and the plot moves swiftly. Clues are given along the way to make the reader suspect different characters of the murder. The reader is continually making and revising predictions as new events develop. The author throws a bit of action in too as the novel reaches its climax. Even though I didn't give the book my top rating, I still think most readers will enjoy it. I'm anxious to read the next book in the series, Death by Latte.
