Woman's Death During Hurricane Harvey No Accident, The Ripples Investigate in Ripped Apart, A Ripple Effect Cozy Mystery by Jeanne Glidewell
Key Allegro Island, Rockport, Texas, August 2017
Rip and Rapella Ripple are attending the wedding of Lexie Starr's daughter in Missouri when Hurricane Harvey makes landfall in their hometown of Rockport, TX.
Their daughter and her husband ride out the storm on Key Allegro along with their neighbor, Sadie Ramirez. But Sadie Ramirez ends up dead, presumably a casualty of the Category 4 storm.
Upon her return, Rapella questions the woman’s death. She’s convinced Sadie’s husband, Julio, used the storm as a convenient cover-up to eliminate his wife. She sets about investigating the truth behind the death of the kind lady, also a close friend of her daughter’s.
The unfortunate event has caused Regina to be so overwrought that she can’t deal with the destruction the hurricane has left behind, including the damage to her beautiful island home.
Stay tuned . . . more to come.
