Sherri Travis is three months behind on her mortgage and it will be last call for the Sunset Bar and Grill if she doesn’t come up with some cash. So when Aunt Kay offers to pay Sherri to ask a few questions about Holly Mitchell’s death, it sounds like easy money. But it quickly descends into a dangerous world of drugs, sex workers, and perversion. Did Holly really take the highball exit, or was she murdered? And what happened to her baby?
Set in small beach towns along the western coast of Florida, the Sherri Travis Mysteries follow Sherri Travis, a bartender and ordinary woman caught up in extraordinary situations. A traditional mystery series serving Jack Daniels instead of tea, the stories walk the line between mystery and suspense and include a delicious mix of cocktails, beaches, and murder. In a place where the very rich live next door to the very poor, where tourists come and go, and where newcomers reinvent themselves, all good stories begin with “One night in a bar . . .” Highball Exit is the fifth book in the series.
| This was truly the most terrifying Sherri story to date. It held me spellbound all day until now at 3:01 am Brooklyn time. I have finally read the last two words “THE END” and I can finally drag myself off to bed.Poor Sherri is dragged into the hunt for a missing young woman, and the only reason she let herself get pulled in was MONEY. It all started on a quiet Sunday morning when a police car pulled into her driveway and her “Aunt Kay” pulled herself out of the back seat. Kay is not a relative. She was her after school sitter, baby sitter, and when she was older, a safe haven from her hellish life at home.Sherri tried to turn her aunt down but the lure of the money (the three months back mortgage payment) was too much. This began the adventure and case from hell.
