Saving Tuna Street (A Blanche Murningham Mystery)
A threat has come to the quaint neighborhood of Tuna Street, which includes Blanche’s very own home on the beach. These Chicago tycoons have another thing coming when Blanche gets on the case and she’s not about to let some land-grabbers buy up her home. After someone close to her is murdered, she dives into her journalist field to catch a killer. What she discovers is beyond anything she expected to find on their small island of Santa Maria. Their idyllic home has been a safe place, but now, Blanche uncovers that even their paradise has secrets when she’s thrown into a world that pulls her into greed, drugs, murder, and kidnapping.
Nancy Nau Sullivan delivers a top-notch mystery that has it all: great characters, gorgeous setting, and a thrilling murder. The location of Santa Maria Island creates a brilliant catalyst for storytelling when this idyllic community is flipped on its head when Blanche discovers a growing underbelly of corruption and drugs. Sullivan weaves these darker elements into this island life of peace and tranquility that Blanche adores, which throws it into a murder mystery that finds her world thrown into a storm of drugs, murder, and kidnapping. The mystery has lighter elements that balance out against the darker elements woven throughout. The tycoons provide an excellent villain as they represent greed and corruption, and their presence is what seeps these elements into their small island life and threatens their peaceful existence. Tuna Street is Blanche’s paradise and a place that adds to her drive and determination. Blanche has the sharp wit and mind for details of a journalist, which makes for an ideal sleuth and is woven into how she investigates her friend’s murder. Saving Tuna Street is a delightful mystery with a charming location, enjoyable characters, and a plot that will have you hooked from the first page.
