Death by Bikini

Hola there guys. I've been having a good day today. It's sunny and 72 degrees and I've been lying in the sun reading :). How has your day been going??? I finished Death by Bikini by Linda Gerber and loved it, so here's the review:
Aphra's mom left four years ago. For years Aphra has been feeling alone while she lives with her dad on their island resort. Usually, life on the resort in boring. Celebrities come and go and all Aphra does is clean up after them. But when the mysterious Smiths arrive at the island, everything changes. First, a dead girl is found on the beach, her bikini top choking her. Then, there's the mysterious Adam Smith, and his dad, who Aphra thinks is the killer. Who can Aphra trust when even her father seems to be keeping stuff from her? How can she stop herself from liking Adam when she's pretty sure he's dangerous? Read this awesome book about family, mystery, and humor.
I wasn't really expecting this book to be much. I thought it would be like all the other books that I've read. But as the book progressed, the book took a whole new turn. First of all, the setting is different, its on an island. And second, there's nothing about a stalker/killer, which is the stuff I usually read. Like Blue is for Nightmares and stuff. And of course, Aphra was a wonderful character. She was smart and clever and I felt like I knew her better than anyone else. I loved how the story went to places I never expected it to. The book's plot was pretty sweet, you can't just read the first book and not read Death by Latte or Death by Denim, you gotta finish the series. Over all, this book exceeded my expectations and Linda Gerber once again made me fall in love with a book.
