Island of Last Resorts by Mary Ellis

Private investigator Kate Weller knows her co-workers are in serious trouble when she is unable to reach them in the third enthralling Marked for Retribution mystery.

Kate Weller's boss, Nate Price, has some exciting news: Julian Frazier, a friend of one of the agency's wealthy clients, has invited the Nate Price Investigations team and their partners on a trip of a lifetime to his home on Elysian Island, an exclusive retreat off the Georgian coast. But there's a catch. Frazier has written his own murder mystery script, and the PIs must work out whodunnit. As they're about to discover, though, the murder Frazier wants them to solve is a real cold case, and there's a killer twist that isn't in the script . . .

Unable to reach Elysian Island and her co-workers, Kate is sure that someone wants her to stay away. Can she stop a ruthless killer and uncover the truth behind a deadly game?

My Review

This book is a page turner, and I loved being back with these characters that I have learned to care about and know.
When we begin this read, I thought wow take me along on this awesome sounding vacation, who wouldn’t want to be wined and dined at what sounded like a five-star private island?
You will soon find out what it is like, and what your expected to do to stay there, and you will have to decide how you want to play the game.
This read often had my heart in my throat as we went along, and I never knew what was around the next corner. Whom can you trust, and will these people ever return from this island?
Facts are reveal and there are some surprises, and in the end, I still want more visits,

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Severn House, and was not required to give a positive review.
