Mystery Readers love Pineapple Puzzles & The Pineapple Port Series:

"I absolutely love this series. Florida is the setting for some of the best-written mysteries around, John D. MacDonald, Carl Hiaasen, Blaize Clement, Randy Wayne White, Michael Lister, and now Amy Vansant...We usually use World Building in terms of speculative writing such as Fantasy and SF, but it applies here as well. The retirement community of Pineapple Port has both a recurring and expanding cast. It is fully realized and with enduring characters. This volume centers around a battle between two serial killers, but there are also everyday mysteries such as the disappearing plants from the yards in the neighborhood. These books are far more complex than the usual cozy, and this one had one of the funniest lines ever, using the double meaning of a grammar term. Red herrings abound. Plus there is a hairless cat. What's not to love?!" --- Judith Anderson ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"It is a page-turner and I was so engaged by the clever cat and mouse between “Puzzle Man” and his victims, the second killer, and law enforcement. What an ending! Of course, I am again entertained by the “55+” characters, especially Aunt Carolina, who offer comic relief, and Charlotte and Declan continue to work on their relationship with an ex as the monkey wrench in the deal. Hooked!" ~ Kathleen C.

" Run, don't walk, or you know, saunter or otherwise drag your feet, to your nearest check out station - this book is a must-read!! I have been trying to decide if book 3 was even better than book 1, which I didn't think was possible. If someone held an alligator to my back and said I had to make a decision I would go with yes (and then scream like a little girl). It was so funny with lots of laugh-out-loud moments and when I wasn't laughing I most likely had a silly grin on my face. The mystery itself was top-notch, clever, and whoa, I didn't see that coming! Now I have to go because my dog wants me to read the parts with the cat out loud again, she can be so pushy but she has great taste!" - Amazon Reader ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
