Much Ado About Nauticaling, a book written by Gabby Allan
Reviewed by Jeney Kingsbury
After ditching the corporate lifestyle in Long Beach and moving herself and her cat, Whiskers, to quaint Catalina Island, Whitney Dagner is looking for life at a little slower pace. She has set herself up with helping her brother, Nick, run their grandparents’ tour boat business and opening her own small souvenir shop on the island.
Things are going great, that is until the local bigwig and “self-proclaimed Master of the Island,” Jules Tisdale floats by underneath her family’s glass-bottomed tour boat. Yikes! Local police seem to only have Nick in their sights as far as suspects, sending him into hiding and forcing Whitney to investigate all other leads to clear her brother’s name. Not exactly the laid-back life Whit had anticipated.
With the help of her friend at the police station, her island local grandparents, and her ex-boyfriend who just happened to follow her to Catalina, Whitney digs deep into suspicious business dealings and local rumors to solve the case.
Much Ado About Nauticaling is the first book in a new series by up-and-coming author Gabby Allan. Filled with clever plot twists, vivid scenic descriptions and interesting characters, Much Ado About Nauticaling is a fabulous start to the Whit and Whiskers series.
