He’d been given enough warnings…
Only a heart attack could make Peter Clancy leave his beloved London and the excitement of his work as an investigative journalist. He moves to a quiet coastal town in Australia, the perfect place to write a new book while avoiding all bad influences.
Serenity Bay turns out to be anything but quiet-the neighbours are noisy or nosy, getting under his skin or into his pants. Not even a surprise reunion with an old friend can turn this nightmare into the peaceful retreat Peter was seeking, intent as she is on reuniting him with at least one bad influence.
Of course, Peter doesn’t need much persuasion to resume his vices-old habits die hard, and before long Peter is poking his nose into the affairs (in all senses) of not only his neighbours but the local council, property developers and even aged-care proprietors.
But with the authorities showing no interest in investigating reports by concerned citizens of illegal dumping, vandalism, break-ins and threats-not even after a number of sudden and unexplained deaths-who else can they turn to, but Peter the Perennially Energetic Journalist?
My Review: Rated 5 Out of 5 Stars
Serenity is synonymous with tranquility and peace. If you move to an area surrounded by water, you want to enjoy the views and tranquility of the waves crashing into the sand. Well, Peter Clancy moved to the perfect coastal town in Australia that was far from peaceful. Trouble always finds its way to Peter, and he can’t ignore an opportunity to help people. His investigative reporting is important especially when people are dumping illegally and taking over farms. Whenever trucks flew down the street and dug holes, his neighborhood was far from peaceful. His neighbor ruined Peter’s tranquility, and Peter was ready for revenge. His investigative reporting helped him reveal the culprits of the illegal dumping and saved twin seniors from losing their home and money. I loved that Peter isn’t scared of getting in the middle of trouble but walks straight into it with no fear. I was happy that all the evil characters got what they deserved. It’s always money that makes people turn a blind eye to what is right. Check out Peter’s not-so-serene neighborhood.
