Is the perfect shell worth dying for? Reporter Guin Jones is out to find the answer, before someone gets conked.

When a dead body is found on one of Sanibel’s beaches, clutching a rare Scotch bonnet shell, everyone is shell shocked. Can reporter Guinivere Jones solve the mystery of the murdered beachcomber before another shell-seeker gets hurt?

The fifth book in the Sanibel Island Mystery series, Shell Shocked takes readers back to sunny Sanibel Island, Florida, where everyone, including Guin and her best friend Shelly, is preparing for the world-famous Sanibel Shell Festival. To honor its designation as the Seashell Capital of the United States, the City has commissioned a magnificent shell sculpture, to be unveiled on the eve of the show. However, things start to go horribly wrong as the sculpture nears completion, putting the project and those working on it in peril. And Guin finds herself once again butting heads (and more) with Sanibel Detective William O’Loughlin. Will she be able to break the story before it’s too late?

A page-turner that will leave you guessing who done it until the end, Shell Shocked will entertain and thrill Sanibel and cozy mystery lovers alike.


Shell Shocked (Sanibel Island Mystery series) by Jennifer Schiff did not disappoint me. I COULDN'T PUT THIS BOOK DOWN! From start to finish and every twist and turn, I kept thinking I know who did it. Hmmm.......was I wrong. I love the direction Gwen and the Lt are going. Love reading these books! I have been to Sanibel many times and I feel right at home when I am reading one.
