About the Book
Hollywood sweetheart Joey Darling’s adventures and mishaps continue in the third book of the charming mystery series set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
My name is Joey Darling, and I’m a disgrace to imaginary detectives everywhere.
When actress Joey Darling discovers a mermaid tail with drops of fresh blood on it while hiking in a remote nature preserve, she knows something suspicious is going on.
As details surface, Joey realizes she’s dealing with a problem she has encountered one too many times: someone desperate for fame who falls victim to a predator. With the help of her neighbor Zane Oakley and the opposition of local detective Jackson Sullivan, Joey hunts for answers, unaware of the deadly net in which she’s about to entangle herself.
Joey knows she’s a fish out of water when it comes to cracking cases, but can she use her talent—acting—to help find the missing woman? Or will Joey end up swimming with sharks?

In My Opinion
Let me get this out of the way. Phew, that kiss at the end of Safety in Blunders is well worth the wait!
Joey Darling once again finds herself in the middle of a crime (a missing person case this time around) and questioning her burgeoning interest in two very different men.
Christy Barritt balances romance, suspense, pop culture, and humor (the man buns comment had me rolling). Joey is such a likable character in part because, despite her Hollywood ties, she accepts, sometimes even embraces, her flaws).
While I’m way behind on this series, I’m kind of glad I get to roll right into the next book to spend more time with this group of characters.
