During an especially cold, rainy May, three families move to the recently opened Ocean Tide community on the coast of Maine. Not long after their arrival, a decaying corpse is found lying in the rough of their beautifully manicured golf course-disrupting the idyllic community. When a second body is discovered in a fertilizer shed, just yards away from the seventeenth green, the local authorities are puzzled over the sudden rash of dead bodies and their link to Ocean Tide's newest arrivals. Despite her own misgivings and her husband Alex's warnings, Sarah Deane, an English professor and sometime amateur sleuth, becomes entangled in the investigation. What she uncovers promises to rock the very foundation of the Ocean Tide community. J. S. Borthwick keeps us guessing with another sharp and literate Sarah Deane mystery.… (mere)

It was a decent mystery but I found the narrative uninspiring and not very compelling to keep reading. I never really connected with any character and found myself worrying about what would happen to him/her.

I have not read previous books in this series. I'm not sure if that is an issue or not. There were many questions I had that didn't seem to be answered in this book, and I'm not sure if they'd been addressed in previous books. For example, I never quite understood why Sarah Deane hasn't adopted her husband's name and it wasn't discussed at all in this book. Certainly it is within her rights to keep her own name, but you'd think someone would remark on the fact that her husband is a McKenzie and she's a Deane?

For some reason (not explained in this book), John and Elspeth McKenzie decide to move to Ocean Tides. I'm sure part of it is being near their son and daughter-in-law, but John doesn't seem too thrilled about it and Elspeth ends up taking off for France (again, for reasons not fully explained but having something to do with her art) though her stay in France seems to be a couple days at most.

Ocean Tide seems to be the height of "spin"--trying to be something for everyone and trying to hide the unpleasantries of life.

I'm not sure I had any suspects for the murders, but I don't know if that was just that I didn't care enough to try to figure it out or if the plot was that bad at giving clues or so good that there were lots of red herrings. ( )

To four golfers. Three of fond memory: my grandfather, William M., who claimed to have invented a better baffie; my father, Luther Edmonds, who once upon a time qualified in a tournament two strokes ahead of Bobby Jones, and my father-in-law, James Alexander, who never met a sand trap that he couldn't get the best of. And finally, number four, the Gump, a man whom neither snow nor hail nor gloom of night can stay from his appointed round.
