Death at High Tide is the delightful first installment in the Island Sisters series by Hannah Dennison, featuring two sisters who inherit an old hotel in the remote Isles of Scilly off the coast of Cornwall and find it full of intrigue, danger, and romance.
When Evie Mead’s husband, Robert, suddenly drops dead of a heart attack, a mysterious note is found among his possessions. It indicates that Evie may own the rights to an old hotel on Tregarrick Rock, one of the Isles of Scilly.
Still grieving, Evie is inclined to leave the matter to the accountant to sort out. Her sister Margot, however, flown in from her glamorous career in LA, has other plans. Envisioning a luxurious weekend getaway, she goes right ahead and buys two tickets—one way—to Tregarrick.
Once at the hotel—used in its heyday to house detective novelists, and more fixer-upper than spa resort, after all—Evie and Margot attempt to get to the bottom of things. But the foul-tempered hotel owner claims he's never met the late Robert, even after Evie finds framed photos of them—alongside Robert's first wife—in his office. The rest of the island inhabitants, ranging from an ex-con receptionist to a vicar who communicates with cats, aren't any easier to read.
But when a murder occurs at the hotel, and then another soon follows, frustration turns to desperation. There’s no getting off the island at high tide. And Evie and Margot, the only current visitors to Tregarrick, are suspects one and two. It falls to them to unravel secrets spanning generations—and several of their own—if they want to make it back alive.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Evie is a new widow and her sister Margot arrives to help her in her time of need. As if losing hubby is not bad enough she then learns he was essentially broke. This means she may be losing everything because she became a housewife to make him happy. The only possible silver lining is a note he left about a debt owed to him and if not paid the ownership of an island hotel is his or hers by this point. With nothing left to lose they decide to travel to the hotel for the weekend to see what they can find out. They walk into one eclectic bunch of people as they start meeting everyone once they arrive. What they didn't expect was all the drama they walked into or the death of not one but two of the hotel inhabitants. Suspected of being g involved they start poking around. I must say we get a surprising conclusion that throws them all off balance. A well written cozy that will keep you reading as each new character is introduced along with their quirks. Add in a beautiful setting with plenty of surprise to get a cozy you can't put down. Overall an enjoyable read. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
