Anton and Catarina Cardosa have just realized their dreams The President of the Azores has approved their proposal to help preserve their unique culture and they have moved their family to Santa Maria to transform a derelict property into a rural hotel Casa do Mar But the first murder on the island in living memory threatens to turn their dreams into nightmares Each book of the Azores Heritage Mysteries is set on a different island in the picturesque archipelago and features a recurring cast of endearing local characters and visitors As mysteries are solved the tension between tradition and progress is explored Death at the Water’s Edge offers a glimpse into the history culture and people of Santa Maria

    By the author of one of my all time favorite books Saudade this is the first book of a promising new series I've already read the second book as well As usual Winthrop's forte is in her utterly believable endearingly flawed characters The affection she has for the Azores islands in which she sets her books comes through in every chapter with descriptions of the natural beauty history and culture I did have to remind myself that Winthrop's intent in her new series is quite different There was no wrestling with some of the knottier problems of life although I do see a theme and its evolution in the first two books of the series tradition versus progress This is a lighter mystery It may not have grabbed me as firmly as her other books but it was well worth reading the book that sets up a charming new mystery series And the second book's a winner
