When local football hero Kevin Stanley dies during an end-of-summer party, Glory Martine, with a little otherworldly help, discovers that Kevin's untimely death was no accident--and is linked to Glory's very own great-uncle Louis. Original. 40,000 first printing.

I was really hoping that this cozy, first in a new series with a fun theme, would bring something new to the table. Sadly, it didn't. It is so generic, in fact, that I started forgetting about the plot and the characters the moment I closed the book. Very little backstory is given on our sleuther, Glory, and we're tossed right into her life with little to hold on to. Characters are thrown at us from every direction, and they feel more like caricatures than actual people- the gay couple who owns an antique shop, the nosy and worldly news reporter, the hunky neighbor with the mysterious backstory, and the overly-obsessive-but-has-a-heart-of-gold football coach. There's nothing here to tell us that this is, in fact, Keyhole Bay, Florida- it could be anywhere in the Southern United States. Fifield also stumbles a bit with the plot. It felt clunky and the writing seemed to be poor in sections. The mystery was easy to figure out, and I wasn't ever in suspense or worried for Glory. The only thing I'll be taking with me here is the memory of the blue parrot who is possessed by Glory's uncle, and curses up a storm.
