I just finished Leave me Gasping by T.C.Beacham, a fun little mystery It s set in Tampa, Florida and was quite descriptive of Gulf Coast life I liked that the lead character was approximately my age, a rarity, but that she interacted with people of all ages. Great read I enjoyed reading this book never read anything by TC Beacham Del was a great character and hope we seeof her Lucy is a riot and Ry well hopefully we see what that goes with Del I hope we see another book soon. I really enjoyed relaxing with this great beach book Del Jakes is fun, down to earth and resourceful LEAVE ME GASPING is the first title in a series featuring gutsy female sleuth Del Jakes A childhood friend is missing and Del travels home to coastal Florida In a whirlwind of clues and revelations, the sleuth and her cohorts move from a grungy marina grill to a luxurious waterfront enclave Sound side towns to Gulf side mangrove thickets suspicion to trust despair to hope and grief to love
