ABOUT THIS BOOK

Christy Castleman, a pretty, young novelist, has made a name for herself writing books about mystery and intrigue. The Sassy Snowbirds, a group of lively ladies, spread fun, friendship, and good deeds around the seaside town of Summer Breeze. Everyone is content in their cozy world–until a message is found in a small Victorian glass bottle half buried in the sand.

“Call the police. Someone is trying to kill me.”

Believing the note to have been written by a missing realtor, the Sassy Snowbirds jump into the mystery with Christy. Using her research and know-how as a novelist, the young woman and her unflappable friends succeed where a team of forensic experts stall. But solving real life crimes is much more dangerous than writing them, and Christy must fight for her life when she uncovers a shocking truth and a real murderer.

A contemporary Southern cozy mystery with a touch of romance, When the Sandpiper Calls is a fast-paced and inspirational look at life choices, consequences, second chances, and deepening faith.

    1. That’s when the murdered is someone you don’t care about
      …so you can curl up by the fire and solve the mystery at your leisure.
      Okay, but seriously, a bottle half-buried in the sand? That sounds like “Call the police. Someone is trying to kill me.” when the note was written, but “Get a time machine. Someone killed me a long time ago.” or “It doesn’t matter. They’re never going to get caught.” when it’s found.
