Thirty-six-year-old Nina Spark has done something crazy. After knocking back a night’s worth of wine, she’s bought a house in the Caribbean. Off the Internet. At 2:00 a.m. Committing to the most impulsive decision she’s ever made, Nina leaves her cheating ex-husband behind, puts her teaching career in New York on hold, and moves to Pineapple Cay—a land of white sand, cloudless skies, and turquoise waters. Her new life is off to a lovely start: she’s got a private beach, a handsome neighbor, and a cushy travel-writing assignment. Even Barry Bassett, a greedy land developer eager to push her out to make way for condos, can’t darken her sunny new outlook. But when Barry’s wife goes missing, along with a priceless jeweled necklace, Nina finds herself at the center of the island’s biggest whodunit. With her quirky but fiercely loyal new friends, Nina is determined to solve the mystery—so both she and Pineapple Cay can get back to easy living. Revised edition: This edition of Sunbaked includes editorial revisions.

Organizing a conference for Professor Philip Putzel isn't high on Nina Spark's to-do list. All she wants is to enjoy the sun and sand at her new home on Pineapple Cay, hopefully with handsome fishing guide Ted Matthews by her side. But saying no to Philip isn't easy, especially after a mysterious assailant tried to kill him following his delivery of a scathing keynote address. Sure, her arrogant former boss has a history of run-ins with everyone--Nina included--but expecting to find a real suspect in a banquet hall full of dull, book-toting academics? They're more likely to kill a good joke than a fellow colleague. When Nina is questioned, her curiosity about whodunit leads her to investigate on her own, despite her promise to police chief Blue Roker. Now Nina and her friends Pansy and Danish are combing the beaches for clues. And they'd better act fast, because someone out there is still planning to make good on a killer grudge.

Marti Mickkleson sees ghosts. Only her great-grandmother believes her. Since she died the day before Marti was born, her support isn't worth much in the world of the living. When Marti wakes up in a compromising position with her estranged father standing over her, she thinks he owes her a big apology. After all, he's dead and talking to her-and she talks back. Instead, he claims he was murdered and demands she go home and do something about it. She agrees-anything to get her father out of her life and into his own afterlife. In Bicklesburg, she finds her once formidable mother in the throes of dementia, her perfect-prom-queen sister now a lawyer married to a not-so-perfect man, and her bad-boy high school boyfriend a private security guard watching over the family fortress. When her mother wanders away and is found cradling a bloodstained garden gnome, she and Grandma Bertie must uncover a murderer before Marti ends up a ghost herself.

Gerald Samper, an effete English snob, has his own private hilltop in Tuscany where he wiles away his time working as a ghostwriter for celebrities and inventing wholly original culinary concoctions––including ice-cream made with garlic and the bitter, herb-based liqueur of the book’s title. Gerald’s idyll is shattered by the arrival of Marta, on the run from a crime-riddled former soviet republic. A series of hilarious misunderstands brings this odd couple into ever closer and more disastrous proximity.
