Part-time sleuth and full-time fashionista Haley Randolph just won an all-expenses-paid vacay at the Rowan Resort, a ridiculously exclusive island getaway that caters to the whims of millionaires, royalty, and Hollywood A-listers. With her three BFFs—Marcie, Bella, and Sandy—along for the ride, the only thing shes missing is the Sea Vixen, the seasons hottest beach bag. . .
The island has everything Haley imagined: pristine beaches, posh accommodations, and possibly Brad Pitt. But trouble soon looms on the horizon when Jaslyn Gordon, a maid at the island resort, goes missing. And while practically looting the resort for a Sea Vixen beach bag, Haley of course finds the maid—on the beach. . .and clearly dead.
Everyone at the resort says Jaslyns death was just an accident, but Haley thinks theres a lot going unsaid. . .especially when she spots hunky FBI agent Luke Warner. He claims to be on the island only for a wedding but Haleys not buying it.
Haleys faced down clever criminals before and always come out on top, but this malicious murderer might be too crafty. And though shes dying to get her hands on a Sea Vixen, she also wants to live long enough to be seen with it!
