Review: Shell Game

User Review  - Goodreads

Shell Game is fun mystery set in Florida. A harmless guy goes hunting for seashells and finds a beautiful woman trying to hide in four inches of water, and a whole lot of trouble. While the puzzle isn't much, the witty repartee makes this a very entertaining book. Read full review
