What a wonderful group of characters! They are so well developed and you feel like you know each one personally. Aunt Amelia and her sidekick macaw, Barnacle Bob, are so entertaining. I enjoyed all of the references to various TV shows and commercials that Aunt Amelia appeared in over the years. And then you factor in a murder mystery and you are in for a delightful read.
The relationships between the various characters are varied…budding romance, friendships, family, frenemies, jealousy…a little bit of everything. And such wonderful pets are scattered throughout. I want to move to the Indialantic By the Sea and live with this amazing group of people.
