This book made no sense to me. I usually give up on these types of books. I kept reading. Heaven knows why. I should have stopped. Have no idea how this got 4 stars unless it's a misprint. Too much going on and none of it made sense. Bad. Even the misspellings. Just tragic. Read at your own discretion. Blah.

This was a very interesting read. I liked it very much. I am most appreciative of the fact that whodunit (x3!) Was very well thought out and funny to boot!

Stella Whitelaw has created a series about a woman who got kicked off a local police force. She becomes a PI and a junk shop owner. The books are full of quirky scenarios, and an often frustrating love angle. I love reading about places that I have visited in England. I've been to the South Downs, and Dorking. I can see these places in my mind's eye.

Wave or die is mystery takes it time building the story. The story isn't face pace as the author gives the readers enough details to paint a picture. With the slow pace I found myself sometimes getting lost in the main story. I didn't read book one but Stella Whitelaw gives the readers just enough information to keep the readers up to date with her current story.
Jordan Lacey went from cop to PI trying to find whether a husband is eating on his wife. Jordan is taking on several cases at once and between the cake and the flowers she is suddenly accused accused of murder and arson.
DI James who she fights with as their path constantly cross. While her detective skills have failed her before this time it will be what might save her life.
Jordan is an interesting characters she is smart, take charge, feisty and to be the best at what she does even if it makes those in the Police department upset.

Advance Copy from Netgalley Honestly thoughts.

Jordan Lacey was once a policewoman. These days she runs a junk store and she's the only Private Investigator in her small community. It seems to be feast or famine with her PI business. Either she has nothing on the books ...or maybe too much ... like today.

She winds up with the most interesting cases ... cases the police may or may not look into. Her first case is a farmer ... of water lilies. Someone has stolen thousands of plants from his property.

In a home catering event, someone trashes all the food and steals the heart of the show..a beautiful wedding cake the baker made especially for her ex-daughter in law who is getting remarried.

A local counselor's wife wants Lacey to follow her husband. She suspects him of cheating on her and she wants to know who, what and when.

Amidst all this she has to deal with DI James ... the love of her life.... sort of. He doesn't seem to like her very much. But that won't stop the fantasies ..some of which are absolutely hilarious.

In addition to her present cases, there are also 2 Italian Mafia types who show up on her doorstep... arson ..... a woman who is painted to death ... another death with a man locked in a safe during a house fire.

Although this is 2nd in a series, this works well as a stand-alone. This is a mystery, but not terribly suspenseful. I adore the characters. Lacey is feisty, stubborn, and turns to comedy and a smart mouth when in doubt about anything .. and that's quite often. They don't call her Jaws without good reason.DI James is mostly quiet, stoic, and views Lacey as an alien from another planet. And then there the assorted quirky residents who pass in and out of the story.

There are 9 stories in this series ... I do believe I will read them all.

Many thanks to the author / Endeavor Press / Netgalley for the digital copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

I enjoyed the main character very much. She's witty and self-deprecating, motivated but seemingly lazy. She's one of those characters who can't stay out of trouble, but refuses to give up. Her infatuation with not one but two seemingly unavailable men was both hysterics and realistic. As an American, however, it wasn't easy to figure out a lot of the slang, brand names, and jargon. I did a lot of googling to decipher the language. The mystery was unraveled verrrry slowly, and this was definitely not a stay-up-all-night thriller, but I still really liked the plot. If there are sequels, I will definitely read them.
Like a refreshing breath of fresh sea air, this second installment in the Jordan Lacy cozies is set in the British seaside town of Latchings. A delight from the first page, Jordan Lacy is a most unconventional former police woman turned private investigator/junk shop dealer/jazz connoisseur. As she pedals about Latchings, the dialogue and characterization are absolutely charming - as is Jordan's very active fantasy life. With a caseload that includes stolen water lilies, a missing wedding cake, as well as a errant husband, Jordan has her sights set on acquiring the Ladybird, a little red coupe with black spots. As she moves on to missing bankers, mistresses, murder and arson, Jordan finds herself a suspect. Taking plenty of time for a cup of tea or coffee here and there, Jordan eventually fits together the puzzle pieces - and surprises everyone. The end seemed very rushed and implausible, but did not diminish my delight in another Jordan Lacy book.
