When a tour company books the Gray Whale Inn for a full week, innkeeper Natalie Barnes can’t wait to get cooking — and to hitch a ride on the antique schooner Summer Breeze, getting up close and personal with the local whales. But when the schooner’s handsome captain winds up attached to the vessel’s anchor, sixty feet underwater, the tour takes a dark turn.
Before long, the tour naturalist (and Natalie’s friend Charlene’s beau) is behind bars, charged with a murder Charlene swears he didn’t commit. Stir in a surprise visit from Natalie’s quarrelsome sister, midnight kitchen sabotage, a sick orphan kitten, and a mysterious investor with nefarious plans, and Natalie’s got a recipe for disaster.
“I’m ready to book a room at the Gray Whale Inn.” — Susan Wittig Albert, NYT bestselling author
