Sabrina Dunsweeney desperately needs a job. After moving to isolated Comico Island with her parakeet Calvin to start a new chapter of her life, Sabrina is discovering that life in a beautiful, tropical environment isnt all fun and games.
When the town council offers her employment as the islands first official ombudsman to cope with the burgeoning tourist influx, Sabrina is thrilled. Her first order of business is to deal with a number of burglaries. But as she digs deeper into the theftless break-ins, she begins to suspect that this mystery originated in the rum-soaked days of prohibition.
Then, Sabrina must face the Hummers who have booked a week at one of the local hotels. The Hummers claim that they can hear a hum that no one else can, and they believe they can only rid themselves of the annoying, persistent noise by following very private rituals.
When the spokesman of the Hummers is murdered, Sabrina develops a theory that makes her the target of a killers rage. Will she survive her first week on the job?

About the Author:

Critically-acclaimed author Wendy Howell Mills enjoys writing humorous mysteries set in an eclectic, island locale. She lives on a tropical island off the southwest coast of Florida with her husband and two young sons, where she spends her time writing and dodging hurricanes

From Publishers Weekly:

Sabrina Dunsweeney left a teaching career in Cincinnati for the gentler clime of Comico Island in 2006's Island Intrigue, but island living has not yet proved entirely carefree for this amateur sleuth, whose new position as island ombudsman has her negotiating some delicate tourist-local relations in Mills's silly but fun follow-up. Both tourism and the death rate rise when an odd organization, Hummers International Inc., comes to Comico for a retreat. The Hummers "hear the Hum," which is the "voice of the universe," explains Hummers president Michael Siderius. But perhaps Hummer spokesman Gilbert Kane, found floating face down in the marina, heard too much. While the remaining Hummers fear for their lives—and their hearing—Sabrina works on cracking the case as well as a string of break-ins. Mills's eccentric, vaguely Southern resort community may tap into the escapist fantasies of people feeling trapped in humdrum lives and searching for a "patch of paradise." (Apr.)
