Description

English girl Ellie is a "fish out of water" when she arrives in sunny Florida for a vacation with her aunt at a luxury beach resort. But she's barely dipped her toe in the ocean before she stumbles on a sinister murder. Now, Ellie must battle sunburn, jet lag and a cheeky parrot named Hemingway, while trying to unravel the mystery.

With a writers' conference in full flow, there's no shortage of suspects. Is the killer a jealous rival author? Or the victim's secret lover? And why are some of the resort staff behaving so suspiciously? To make things worse, Aunt Olive has gone missing, fueling gossip that she might be on the run. But Ellie is sure that her aunt isn't guilty.

Life gets even more complicated when she starts snooping around the resort. First, there's the resident cat Mojito, who leads Ellie on a wild "gator" chase, and then, there's the handsome resort doctor who sets Ellie's pulse racing in a different way!

As more red herrings than sand dollars wash up on the beach, Ellie must use all her wits to solve the case before her visit to the Sunshine State becomes deadlier than she ever imagined....

Welcome to the deadliest beach resort in Florida in USA Today best-selling author H.Y. Hanna's fun, new mystery series!

Fun new series

This new mystery from H.Y. Hanna was fun to listen to. Her stories set in Britain are my favorites, but this book was entertaining and enjoyable as well.
It has some interesting characters, and as in all of her books, some fun animal characters too. The narrator, Pearl Hewitt, does an excellent job with all the different voices, and in this book even adds a sassy macaw to her repertoire.
Don't expect anything too serious - this is light escapist fare, and I must admit I was able to figure out who the murderer was fairly early on.
Just listen, laugh, and enjoy.
I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for my honest review.

What a nice new series

I really enjoyed listening to H.Y.Hanna’s new book, Flip-Flops and Murder. The characters are well developed and likable. Pearl Hewitt, as always, gave a wonderful performance as always. I highly recommend this book/audiobook to cozy mystery fans. I’m looking forward to the next in the series.

Cute but Simplistic

I enjoy H.Y. Hanna tea house mysteries, but this Florida tale fell short for me. I’ll skip the other books in this series.

Ellie from England Comes to Sunny Florida

What a fun cozy mystery about a young English woman who is invited to spend time with her Aunt Olive, who is a mystery writer in Florida. Ellie has just broken off with her boyfriend and lost her job, and despite her parents urging to "find a career" accepts Aunt Olive's invitation for a vacation in sunny Florida. But when she arrives, Aunt Olive is no where to be found. But there's plenty of action at the writers' convention being held at the resort where Aunt Olive resides. So Ellie makes herself at home, attends some sessions, meets some of the authors . . . and stumbles upon a murder! With her Aunt Olive also missing, the police zero in on her as a suspect. But Ellie is having none of it, and begins some sleuthing on her own. Clearly this is a light mystery, but still very fun. The ending is priceless 😊

Nancy Drew at the beach; stays in the shallows

Light and formulaic mystery, as if made for a Murder She Wrote episode, but with a younger, British lead in Ellie. There are cute, but rather stereotypical characters (the eccentric aunt, the secret Latin lover who plays gigolo to the resort’s elder ladies, the zany animals whose quirks coincidentally help move the story along). The narrator is fabulous; she does credible animal sounds and does a great British accent, although it did feel a bit like she was telling me a children’s tale. Indeed, apart from some very tame sexual innuendos (she never even uses the word “sex”), this is a squeaky clean book. The worst profanity is an exclamation of “sodding” and a reference to a woman as a “witch.” This was an okay 5hr freebie from Audible’s 2 for 1 sale.

Earns 5+/5 Squawking Macaws...Clever Fun!

Brilliant! H.Y. Hanna is an excellent writer engaging me again in another witty, clever, cozy mystery, and my experience was greatly enriched by the voice artistry of Pearl Hewitt using a delightful British dialect, many interpretations of good o’ American, and an entertaining variety of male and female, young and mature voices. Ellie Bishop, well depicted by Hewitt’s tone and dialect, has exchanged a dead-end job, broken heart, and dreary London winter for a vacation at a beachside resort in sunny Florida on invitation of her eccentric Aunt Olive Goldberg. However, when she arrives at the hotel, Aunt Olive is missing and, later, a dead body is found. This cozy is shorter than books in Hanna’s other series, but not on content and entertainment, and her strong female character, always working on confidence issues, continues to be set in wonderful surroundings with challenges, friends, family, a romantic opportunity, and a fur, or feathered, friend to add angst and comic relief, of course, squawked and meowed well by Hewitt. The murder mystery had me bouncing around the obvious to the obscure with a surprising, but totally satisfying karmic conclusion. And...Ellie’s reluctance to entertain a holiday romance, is a conundrum when she meets the hunky doctor. Hanna’s descriptions of the tropical environment, regional delicacies, and antics by two- and four-legged characters along with realistic dialogue to help illustrate personalities kept me engaged and eager for more, and loving with Pearl Hewitt’s performance!

What a boring story

After 7 chapters, nothing had developed much. Ellie, the main character is clueless. The narrator is annoying at best. Not for me!

How about a bowl of cold wet noodles

The narration of this book is like eating a bowl of cold, wet, noodles. I didn't finish the book. Too predictable. Main character seems weak, and ineffective. I was looking forward to reading the whole series, but now I will give it a pass.
