Review: Pinneapple Port Mysteries

Pineapple Lies (Pineapple Port Mysteries #1)

by Amy Vansant (Goodreads Author)  25327435
Growing up in one of Florida’s fifty-five plus communities, Charlotte never expected life to be wild. Golf cart racing with her surrogate mothers Mariska and Darla was about as nutty as life got…until she found the hot pawnbroker’s mom buried in her backyard.
Talk about making a lousy first impression.
Armed with nothing but her wits, Pineapple Port’s questionable cast of characters and a growing crush, Charlotte is determined to solve the mystery of Declan’s mother’s murder.
Hey, at least this guy’s skeletons aren’t in his closet.

My Review

I just have to say that this book was hilarious. It was definately a laugh out loud read. I mean, who doesn’t find a 26 year old girl living in a retirement village funny. ? I sure did. And the shenanigans her and her neighbors get into. bahaha This book had mystery, suspence, comedy and romance all rolled into one. These are just as funny as Janet Evonavich books about Stephanie Plum. Loved it! Definatley going to read the next book. I am hooked. Happy reading!

When a giant inflatable Halloween witch goes missing in the Pineapple Port retirement community, Charlotte’s eager to nab the culprit. Before she can lift a fingerprint, someone threatens to kill a new neighbor who looks like an adorable Pomeranian but possesses a disturbing talent for revenge. Moments later, a stranger demands the return of a mysterious wooden box… or else.
Charlotte’s boyfriend, Declan, isn’t having a great morning either. His calculating ex-girlfriend has returned to claim she’s the rightful owner of his pawn shop. She’s livid he’s found a new lady, too.
Eh. Things could be worse. At least Charlotte doesn’t know that a mojito-swilling killer who fed his grandmother to a cat is on his way to Pineapple Port…Keywords: cozy mystery, female protagonist, humorous, amateur sleuth, romance, small towns.


My Review

Ok so this is the second book in the series and I must say I really love this series. I am a big fan! I am hooked. This book has so many twists and turns that I couldn’t figure out the end game. I love the characters that Amy has created. They are funny and have great personality. This book was just as laugh out loud funny as the first. Even topping the first story. I believe this will be one of those series that is like a fine wine, getting better and better with each year, or in this case book. I loved the mystery and comedy of the story. I can’t wait to read book 3 and find out what Charlotte and the Pineapple Port gang get into next. If you haven’t read this series you need to pick it up now and get to reading. Happy Reading!! :0)

My Review


This was a great book. This is the 3rd installment and I must say,
I didn’t see that coming. This book really had me guessing and still did not figure it out. I can say though Charlotte is smarter than people guess. And the new addition of characters are awesome. Each character is unique and brilliant. This series is quirky fun.

My Review

Oh my!

How the plots thicken…..Man this was a good one. I really think Charlotte will figure things out soon. I I am really enjoying this series. I am so excited cannot wait for the next one to come out later this year. If you haven’t picked these books up you need to they are awesome. The characters are witty and unique. The book has several laugh out loud moments. The mystery and suspense will keep you on your toes with every twist and turn. Then you think you got it all figured out and then Bam! something else happens and the way you thought something was going to go doesn’t go that way. Patiently waiting for the next book. Happy reading!

Amy is a fun-loving individual that I have chatted with a few times.  She cracks me up with her witty humor.  I love her Pineapple Port Series.  They are outrageously funny and come from a unique storyline.  She asks fans for assistance in picking out names and places for her stories.  Who doesn’t find that fun?  I am patiently waiting for book 5.
