Overview

A Pacific Book Awards Finalist in Suspense

Fire Chief Colleen McCabe is enjoying a quiet summer and her budding romance with Sheriff Bill Dorman. However, her peaceful start to the tourist season is shattered when a tropical storm blows through Corolla and unearths a body buried under a vacation home boardwalk. When callous land developer Denny Custis dies in a suspicious fire, Colleen has a hunch the two deaths are linked.

As she and Bill investigate, they discover that virtually everyone, including Colleen, has had a beef or run-in with Denny and a motive for murder. When Pinky Salvatore becomes the primary suspect, Colleen is determined to clear his name. Despite his and Denny's well-documented housing development rivalry, Colleen is convinced that the real killer is still out there.

While digging through an ever-widening list of suspects, Bill and Colleen become embroiled in a vicious battle between those committed to saving Corolla's wild horses, those protecting the endangered piping plover shore bird, and a greedy tour company who would destroy their habitats.

"Neighing with Fire" is the third entry in Kathryn O'Sullivan's cozy series known for its colorful characters, strong setting and thoroughly charming humor.

In O'Sullivan's diverting third mystery to feature Corolla, N.C., fire chief Colleen McCabe (after 2014's Murder on the Hoof), Colleen and her border collie, Sparky, come across a body on the beach, later identified as that of Michael Hector Fuentes. Although Tropical Storm Ana has swept through the area, the report of the medical examiner indicates a more sinister cause of Michael's demise. Raising further questions is the death of Michael's boss, local construction titan Denny Custis, in an atypical fire. Colleen's new boyfriend, Currituck County sheriff Bill Dorman, would rather that she avoid possibly threatening situations, but she worries about the potential involvement of Denny's rival, Antonio "Pinky" Salvatore, and her former teacher Myrtle Crepe, self-styled mistress of disguise and an advocate for the Outer Banks wild horse population, who previously tangled with Denny. The upcoming New Age-y nuptials of firefighter Chip and the town residents' intense interest in Colleen and Bill's budding relationship provide an amusing counterpoint. Agent: Eleanor Wood, Spectrum Literary Agency. (May)
