Adie is all set for a much needed vacation in Cozumel, but two murders and a best friend, Marg, who is a prime suspect, take relaxation out of the picture. In A Corpse for Cozumel, an Adie Sturm Mystery by Anastasia Amor, intrigue, mystery and murder follow Adie to the beautiful Mexican resort area where she has to find the killer or become a victim herself. With several attempts on her own life, Adie goes into hiding with a handsome former love interest she has trouble resisting. To get information about shady money deals that may have led to the two murders, she plays with fire with another wealthy, sexy man who wants more from Adie than she is ready to give. In the meantime, Adie shares clues and receives updates from a reporter and a police detective back in her home town near Toronto ... only to discover that Marg may have more to do with the crimes than anyone suspected. Will the pieces fit together in time to save her own life or will the killer succeed in eliminating the threat that Adie poses?

Detailed local color and flavor combine with intense mystery and intrigue as well as steamy romance in A Corpse for Cozumel, an Adie Sturm Mystery by Anastasia Amor. Excellent descriptions, well-developed characters, and great action keep you right in the story, turning page after page to see what happens next. Sexual tension is high as Adie yearns to experience love but actual intimacy is limited. Adie Sturm is a wonderful character to help you enjoy another world from the comfort of your own home or beach chair. Gripping story, hot characters, realistic dialogue and fantastic action!

I had no idea who the murderer was until the end of the story and in my opinion that is a good suspense. Ms. Amor surprised me with her expanse of detail of the locations and the plot, creating a vivid world for all who read her work. — Contessica Enchantingreviews

“Our heroine, Adie Strum, accidentally finds herself in the middle of a double murder mystery. After her best friend, Marg Beige, becomes the prime suspect, Adie is determined to prove her friend’s innocence at any cost. The clues and Marg lead Adie to Cozumel, Mexico where she just happens to be headed for a “working” vacation.

While in Cozumel, Adie runs into Wof Du Lac, a romantic blast from the past. Wolf has a knack for arriving in the knick of time to save Adie. Not to mention a knack for turning up the heat. Wolf volunteers to help Adie and Marg solve this mystery, but is he really just trying to get in Adie’s bed?

Of course, no foreign adventure could be complete without a sexy, potentially villainous, exotic heartthrob. Santiago “Diego” Alvarez is the reason Marg came to Cozumel and may be behind the attacks on Adie and Marg. When they first meet, Diego has no idea that Adie is connected to Marg. All he knows is that he’s instantly smitten with her. Can Adie use this attraction to determine if he is behind all of Marg’s troubles?

If you like a good whodunit that keeps you guessing, grab a glass of wine and put on your detective’s hat, because Anastasia Amor’s A Corpse for Cozumel is the book for you. “—Yolanda Twolipsreviews
