I really enjoyed this book & am ready to move to Nags Head

The setting in the Outer Banks of North Carolina is a major part of this book -- I've never been there, but have seen places along the coast and can use my imagination. The main character is Callie, restaurant manager at a resort hotel on the Outer Banks. She has changed her name to avoid the press (she was involved in saving a child's life) and left an unfaithful husband to start over. Margie, who is her best wait person and someone she's grown to like, disappears one night, leaving a couple of notes behind but no explanation. Has something happened to her? Is she being stalked? Who is she, really? What secret is Margie hiding? At the same time, one of Callie's kitchen staff finds a skull on the beach that turns out to be a murder victim's, who was killed several years ago elsewhere. How did the skull get to the OUter Banks? Is the killer around, and is he someone she knows, someone who might kill again? This is the kind of book that you look forward to getting back to. And I'm serious, it made me want to move to North Carolina and live on the Outer Banks, hurricanes and all.

Great Outer Banks book and more!

This is a wonderful book! Had been waiting for its release and it lived up to the wait. Everybody will like this book, from its Outer Banks commentary to the characters to the surprise ending. Glad I found for book signing schedule and more! Thanks Wendy for these great books and keep 'em coming!

Death of a Mermaid

I absolutely loved the book! It's even better than the first one. I couldn't put it down and didn't know who the bad guy was until the end. Wendy's writing is wonderful and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I'm ready to read her next one as soon as she writes it. Way to go Wendy!

Great Read!

This book is a great read! It moves swiftly and keeps you guessing right up to the end. The characters from Mills' first book seem like old friends. Highly recommended!

Great Sequel!

After reading Mrs. Mills' first book, "Callie And The Dealer And A Dog Named Jake", which introduced me to the main characters, I was delighted to read this sequel which explores the characters in greater detail and yet still delivers an intriguing and compelling mystery. Unlike many mysteries I've read, this author makes it almost impossible to predetermine the killer or his/her motivations.From what I understand, this is only her second book but it reads like she's been writing all her life.This is a wonderful book which I highly recommend.
