When thirty-year-old Cordelia Corbett returns to Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey and rejoins her boss at Kohr’s Frozen Custard after a sixteen-year hiatus, they immediately run into a crime scene at the Food Shack down the boardwalk. Cordelia is drawn to a handsome stranger as they both lend a hand.

Soon, love may be in the air between them, if they can stop butting heads long enough to let it grow. Or will Cordelia’s new obsession with crime-solving stand between them?

“Under the Influence by J.T. Kunkel, features Cordelia, an unlikely heroine, whose sass and wisdom work hand in hand to help her solve not only a mystery, but to deliver wisdom and social commentary on building friendships and community. A cozy mystery that entertains and has you cheering by the end!” -Jane Ver Mulm, author of Finding Paradise
