Book #3 from the series: Summer O'Dare Mysteries

Loving Summer

Available At:


When the Wedding of the Century takes place at Cooper’s Beach, the guest list turns out to be deadly.

Life is going great for Doubtless Bay’s kooky private investigator, Summer O’Dare. She’s got a new boarder staying at her house by the beach. She just wrapped up a case for the local wildlife sanctuary. She has a hot date planned for this evening.

And then her dog finds a dead body on the beach.

The case has the full attention of the local police, but it’s not the only unsolved mystery. A stranger has washed up on the beach. He doesn’t know his name, he doesn’t have any identification, and the police are too busy investigating a murder.

Cue O’Dare & Sons Investigations!

On the job, finally able to pay her tab at the Coffee Cube for all those donuts she ate last week, Summer gets down to business identifying the stranger. But things don’t go exactly as planned. Soon Summer finds herself surrounded by guilty people, mixed up in weird and frankly kinky situations, and hunted by the murderer.

Just as well she’s got a few tricks up her sleeve. And a penchant for donuts. But can Summer find the murderer in amongst the plethora of suspects? Or in amongst the plethora of donuts! Or has Summer’s luck - and moment of happiness - run out?

A fast-paced cozy mystery set in Northland, New Zealand from Amazon Bestselling Author Nicola Claire.
