Jemima Jago arrives at a hidden cottage overlooking Neptune Cove.  She arrives with the intent to salvage a birthday cake disaster. However, she gets more than she bargained for when she finds a dead body on the kitchen floor of the cottage.  Arthur Ajax, the victim and extremely rich businessman is from America.  He arrived in the Isle of Scilly on vacation and never left.  Later that day, Jemma is out in the dunes with her little dog Buck who digs up a treasure trove of buried jewelry.  Jemma wonders if the buried jewelry is somehow tied to the mysterious death of Arthur.  Jemma takes the jewelry to a local jeweler to see if he may know who the jewelry belongs to.  But when he unexpectedly goes missing, Jemma knows for sure it is all connected to Arthur.  She must find the killer before they take the opportunity to kill again.

I truly enjoyed this wonderful cozy mystery.  The humorous banter between the characters in this story was so enjoyable.  The fabulous plot was well written and definitely kept me completely hooked.  I loved the role that Buck played in this story, he was a welcome addition to the book.  This was an absolutely amazing series and I’m not ready for it to end.  Jemima Jago was a loveable character, and I always looked forward to reading her next adventure. This is a definite must read for all cozy mystery fans.

Thank you Emma Jameson for such a wonderful and enjoyable addition to the Jemima Jago Mystery Series.  I loved this series so much and I highly recommend it.

A birthday beach party gone wrong, buried treasure and… a dead body? This might be Jemima Jago’s most baffling case yet!

Jem knocks on the door of an isolated cottage overlooking beautiful Neptune Cove, she’s hoping for help fixing a birthday cake baking disaster. She’s not expecting to find the tenant dead on the tiled floor, specks of blood on the collar of his navy-and-red satin pajamas…

The victim is 
Arthur Ajax, a handsome and wealthy American businessman who arrived in the Isles of Scilly as a tourist ten months ago and never left. There have been rumors about him in town, as he was known for his extravagant lifestyle. Perhaps he’d gone overboard, or could his death be connected to an unpaid debt?

Later that same evening, Jem stumbles across a hoard of buried jewelry, dug up from the dunes by little dog Buck, and she immediately wonders if they could be connected to the rich man’s murder. It’s not every day you find expensive—and very real-looking—sapphire earrings stashed away in an antique biscuit tin!

Jem seeks help from a local jewelry expert to identify the gems. But when he suddenly goes missing, Jem knows someone is trying to cover their tracks. Can she catch the killer before he makes her walk the plank too?
