Annike McKinley is a professional event coordinator. After she is given seven days to plan the Land’s End Yacht Club Easter fete, what she thought would be just a breeze proves differently.
Ken Bessemer is a general contractor who offers to donate time for some repair jobs for the Yacht Club.
Annike is anxious to get to the Yacht Club since she only has seven days to finish a project. Her friend, Sue, is a great helper. After arriving, Commodore Robert Haversham introduces himself and shows them around the area. Not long after reaching the yardarm they discover a hanging body. Close observance proves it is no dummy but a real man. Was it suicide or murder? It appears the crime was made to look like a robbery. Ken is as surprised as the others, when he arrives at the club and hears of the dead body. Annike and Sue hurriedly plan their strategy before time runs out, as they are thrown into their own investigation with Ken, for answers to who wanted Wayne Innes dead. Was Ken responsible in some way? Even the sheriff is baffled. Annike and Sue find themselves amidst Easter bunnies, chocolate coins and plastic eggs while Annike feels someone may be getting a bit too close to her for her upcoming project.
Bunny Hop is an entertaining read. The clever plot weaves intriguing characters that work effortlessly to unlock the truth to the murder of Wayne Innes. I found Annike to be a refreshing character. Annike and Sue make excellent partners in their event planning as well as sisters in crime, almost. Janice Bennett infuses a multi-cast of players that make a lively read. This quaint little mystery is packed with punch and everyone involved makes the reader feel a part of the action.
