Praise for Island Blues... 'The second Dunsweeney cozy lives up to the promise of the first: it's smartly constructed and comfortably written with a likable protagonist and a fresh setting.' -Booklist Sabrina Dunsweeney desperately needs a job. After moving to isolated Comico Island with her parakeet Calvin, Sabrina is discovering that life in a beautiful, tropical environ-ment isn't all fun and games. When the town council offers her employment as the island's first official ombudsman, Sabrina is thrilled. Her first order of business is to deal with a number of tourist-related burglaries. But as she digs deeper into the theftless break-ins, she begins to suspect that this mystery originated in the rum-soaked days of prohibition. And then there are the 'Hummers' who have booked a week at one of the local hotels. The Hummers claim that they can hear a hum that no one else can, and they believe the only way to get rid of this persistent noise is to follow very private rituals. Then the spokesman of the Hummers is murdered and Sabrina finds herself the target of a killer's rage. Will she survive her first week on the job? Wendy Howell Mills lives on a tropical island off the southwest coast of Florida with her husband and sons, where she spends her time writing and dodging hurricanes. Island Blues is second in her island-style mystery series, following Island Intrigue.   www.wendyhowellmills.com
