Keely Moreno, now free from an abusive ex-husband, is living in Key West and building up her foot reflexology business. Things seem to be going fairly well until she arrives for an appointment at her wealthy patient Margaux Ashfordís house to find her dead of a gunshot.

The police are very interested in Keely because she found the victim. They question her quite often, but there are plenty of suspects to go around.

She and her friends decide to try to solve the murder, because they arenít convinced the police will look at all the possible suspects. Other things begin to happen, including a fire and another death. Each of these events is in some way related to Keely. This doesnít help direct the police to other suspects.

Keely finds herself in some sticky situations. Can she and her friends find the murderer without her becoming the next victim?

This is the first book by this author that I have read. It definitely wonít be the last. I really enjoyed Keely, and the Key West location was very refreshing. I felt like I was on vacation while reading this book.

Keely and her friends and family are such fun characters. You never know what might happen next. I canít wait to read another book in this series. I highly recommend this book.
