Welcome to Sharp Island
A peaceful island communityy where no secret is safe and murder might be coming in with the next tide.
Inheriting a bookshop and the island that comes with it could be the solution to all of Emmy’s problems, or it could be the last thing she ever does.
Emerson Fox’s ADHD has left her with a do-nothing degree, a jilted ex-fiancé, mounds of student debt, and a knack for forgetting important things while focusing on obscure details. When a disastrous blind date leaves her stranded in a quaint bookshop on a tiny island in Washington's Puget Sound, the last thing she expects is to find the bookshop’s owner has been murdered. Even more shocking, he’s left a will that names her as his long-lost niece and sole heir to his bookshop and the entire island. Emmy can’t claim her inheritance until she unearths a long-buried family secret, convinces the only police officer in town (and the other half of her disastrous date) that she’s innocent, and finds the focus she needs to solve her uncle’s murder.
Is the Phantom of Sharp Island foretelling a tragic future or is someone hiding a sinister secret from the past?
A ghostly phantom is haunting the Town Hall, bringing with it a kind of phantom fever, an unexpected tourist boom, and Pierce's ghost-hunting ex-girlfriend. When the town's abrasive maintenance man is murdered, Emmy must take the ghostly sightings seriously.
Can she unmask the phantom, or will she find herself lost amongst the ghosts of Sharp Island's past?
