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.
