This book is a hoot! The moment our Canadian friends arrive for their honeymoon in Daytona, FL all hell breaks loose. Laura and Gerry just happen to run over a dead body when they arrive and that dead body just happens to be Laura's ex. As you can imagine, good cops and bad cops alike have them on their radar, before you can say "I'm going to Disney World". They don't hit that tourist hotspot, btw. What they do is their best to enjoy themselves as honeymoon couples are wont to do. They manage to squeeze in some quality time and even do some touristy things that involve a lot of eating, drinking and NASCAR racing. That all happens in between stumbling upon clues, a break-in at their hotel, trips to the local police station, and a mounting number of missing and dead people. The best thing, for me, is Laura's sarcastic wit and her hubby's devotion to his new wife, despite her proclivity to attract trouble like a Porterhouse steak in a pack of Doberman Pinschers! This isn't the first time she's been up to her "almost-plus-sized" neck in trouble. Daytona Dead is the third in the series, so if you want to find out more about Laura you can read Dead on Arrival and Over Her Dead Body. Kudos to a fun, funny, fast read.
