Florida has two seasons. The rainy season brings hurricanes, the dry season delivers tourists – both can be nasty.

Sherri Travis is tending bar at the Bath and Tennis Club where two women have been murdered. A rich socialite, who comes in daily for her quota of side-cars, decides to commit suicide by being the next victim,but first she has to decide who the murderer is.

Sherri pours the drinks and listens to the stories, trying to make sense of it all.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

The second Sherri Travis thriller is an exhilarating tale refreshed by the hurricane that assaults Florida. The story line is fast-paced even when Sherri and company prepare for Myrna and never slows down as the plot twists once the clean-up begins. The two Travis’ tales are wonderful mysteries.

With the same tongue-in-cheek repartee that earned her kudos for her first book, Smallman bars no holds in this second outing. Not only does she nail the noontime-drinks-by-the-pool-discussing-plastic-surgery-techniques set, but she aces the more slithery characters who lurk in the swampy undergrowth one-half step ahead of an alligator.

*******

Clearly, this author has what is takes in creating a believable heroine who, in her first 2 mysteries, shows that she has what it takes, when the “authorities” really don’t get it.

The character development is as I hoped…excellent. I really like these people. I could live there and be a regular at the Sunset. A little dangerous, yes, but behind the safety of the written word, it’s thoroughly enjoyable. Sherri’s a riot. Lots of spunk with an edge. Very believable.

*******

SIDECAR is full of great characters. Smallman’s description of the hurricane is wonderful; she captures both the blase attitude of those who’ve been through this before and the frantic hysteria of those who don’t want to be through it at all.
