Finding a dead pirate is a sure fire way to ruin a good vacation.
It’s no surprise that a beach trip would be one of the destinations on Maisie and Dot’s bucket list, so when the ladies arrange to meet up with Dot’s childhood friend for a Tybee Island getaway, they can’t wait to smell that salt air. A visit to the local pirate festival makes for a swashbuckling good time until the newly-crowned Pirate King turns up as gator bait. Join Dot and Maisie as they, once again, spend their vacation sleuthing to save a friend and her husband from jail time and find out who killed Not-So-Jolly Roger.

Double-Crossed Bones is the third book in S. C. Merritt’s Bucket List mysteries.
