Pineapple Lies is the first book in a long-running mystery series dubbed Pineapple Port. We are introduced to Charlotte, who grew up in a community where most people were over fifty-five. This happened when she was just eleven. First, she lived with her grandma because her mom had passed away. But when her grandma passed away too, a close friend of her grandma named Mariska took care of her. She stayed in Pineapple Port, where many older folks lived, and they were nosy, always checking up on her. Even though she was much younger than them, sometimes she had to explain modern things like pop culture to them, and other times, she had trouble keeping up with their older ways. But most of the time, she got along great with them.

Everything changes for Charlotte when she discovers a skeleton while trying to make a garden. This leads her to get involved in solving a bunch of murder mysteries, like finding skeletons, chasing serial killers, and coming across strange body parts. Along the way, she also starts a romance with a local guy, although things get complicated when his ex-girlfriend shows up. She also has some quirky experiences with her older friends, like joining book clubs, going to holiday parties, and taking vacations with them. And all of this eventually leads her to become a real private investigator.

This series of stories is really fun to read. They’re clever mysteries that mix in some humor when dealing with murder, but they also show real-life stuff for adults. It’s like they’re cozy and comfortable but also a bit exciting. The characters are interesting, especially Charlotte, who’s patient with her older neighbors, careful with her romantic relationships, and good at solving mysteries. Plus, the older folks in the community add a unique charm to the stories. You get to see what it’s like living in a retirement place, how people from different generations interact, and all the surprises that come with solving crimes.

The Girl Who Wants is the first novel in the Shee McQueen Mystery series. Shee McQueen spent her childhood alongside her father, Mick, tracking down military criminals and fugitives. However, her life turns dangerous when someone puts a bounty on her, forcing her to hide. Years later, she resurfaces and returns to her family’s hotel in Jupiter Beach, Florida. Shocked, she discovers her father in a coma, shot by an unknown sniper. Shee is determined to uncover the truth behind this attack.
The Loggerhead Inn, the family hotel, embodies everything Shee loves about a beachfront getaway, from its sea turtle-themed decor to its small but feisty Yorkshire terrier mascot. The hotel is also staffed by her father’s team of experienced yet scarred military veterans seeking redemption through helping others. But then, out of the blue, Mason Connelly, the Navy SEAL she once fell for many years ago, appears in the lobby. He demands answers to long-buried secrets, leaving Shee puzzled and conflicted. Shee yearns to reclaim her old life, but a sinister threat loom.

When Shee McQueen reenters the scene, “The Girl Who Wants” propels readers on a thrilling roller coaster ride filled with heart-pounding action, sharp-witted dialogue, and a web of intrigue. As Shee seeks to recover the life and love she lost, the story delves into a depth of emotion rarely seen in such a gripping suspense tale. The protagonist’s unique blend of humor, irreverence, and relatability will cheer you for her and her eclectic group of friends until the nail-biting conclusion.

This book doesn’t disappoint in delivering excitement but be prepared for the narrative to shift between different characters’ perspectives without warning. One of the book’s standout features is Vansant’s exceptional storytelling, particularly in the intense fight scenes, shootouts, and engaging conversations, which unfold like scenes from a captivating movie. If you pick up this book, you’re in for a treat. It’s a fast-paced, captivating, and thrilling read brimming with elements of love, murder, humor, camaraderie, family bonds, and endearing characters you’ll eagerly follow into the next installment.

Kilty as Charged is the first novel in the Kilty series authored by author Amy Vansant. It combines elements of suspense, romance, and humor. Reading these books in the order they were released is strongly recommended.

Catriona, who works as a fixer for the pampered elite of Hollywood, encounters a rather peculiar sight on the movie lot one day—a man sporting a plaid kilt, passed out cold. Little does she know that this bizarre encounter is about to complicate her life unexpectedly. Her initial instinct is to dismiss the enigmatic and incredibly attractive kilt-wearer, Brochan, as a possible con artist. However, her adoptive father appears oddly comfortable with this man, who claims to have no memory of his past or knowledge of the modern world.
“Kilty as Charged” delivers a love story that keeps you eagerly turning the pages, always wanting more. The humor in the narrative harks back to the romantic comedies of the ’90s and early 2000s, a brand of humor that’s often missing in today’s world. If you have a sarcastic streak, you’ll find yourself laughing out loud several times, particularly if you can relate to the protagonist’s perspective—a sentiment most women share. It’s a well-crafted tale that’s heartwarming and easy to read, free from the explicit scenes that can be prevalent in many novels. The storyline is a delightful mix of time travel, mystery, light romance, and humor, setting the stage for future books in the series. If you’re searching for a book you wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to your daughter or niece, this one is worth picking up.
