In 2018, national bestselling author Kathleen Bridge released the first installment of her cozy mystery series, Death by the Sea, and began the bestselling A By the Sea Mystery series. Now, April 2021 excitingly brings us the fifth book in this collection: Buried by the Sea.
Death by the Sea takes us down to the barrier island of Melbourne Beach, Florida. The Indialantic by the Sea hotel has been run by Liz Holt’s family for over a hundred years, and when she returns to the island after a decade of living in New York, she is happy to see many of the regulars still there.
However, when one filthy rich guest is found dead in her oceanfront suite, Liz doesn’t agree with police that it is a simple jewel-theft-gone-wrong. Liz believes the guest was targeted for murder, and if she lets her guard down, the Indialantic murderer could come after her next.
Bridge’s second installment of the series A Killing by the Sea was also released in 2018 and received similar praise to the first book. A Killing by the Sea returns us to Liz Holt and her family’s hotel as they prepare for its first annual Pirate’s Weekend. But when a body washes up on the shore and a killer begins to leave a trail of destruction, all may be at risk.
On April 13, 2021, Bridge released Buried by the Sea, which brings us back to the Indialantic by the Sea hotel for another cozy mystery. When a group of archeologists discover an elusive treasure from the days of Spanish Conquistadors, one of the archaeologists finds himself also buried in the sand. Police pin the murder on local naturalist Birdman, but Liz isn’t buying it. She sets out to prove his innocence and find the true criminal.
