Item description for In For A Penny (Bay Tanner Mysteries) by Kathryn R. Wall...

The first Bay Tanner mystery

From The Book Jacket
IN FOR A PENNY the first Bay Tanner mystery Bay Tanner's world is paradise until she witnesses her husband's horrific death. Badly injured in the deliberate explosion of his small plane, she retreats to her beach house on Hilton Head Island to heal her wounds and grieve until a cry for help forces her out of her self-imposed exile.Adelaide Boyce Hammond, spinster daughter of an aristocratic Beaufort family, has invested most of her dwindling capital in a development scheme that seems to be unraveling at an alarming rate. Preservationists and environmentalists have joined forces in an attempt to thwart the project, and there are rumors flying around the South Carolina Lowcountry about Geoffrey Anderson, head of the development group and the man a teenaged Bay once idolized.Can the former accountant and financial advisor ignore the plight of her "old money" friends and family, especially her father, retired Judge Talbot Simpson, whose involvement in the shadowy scheme may lead him to financial disaster? And what does all this have to do with her husband's murder? When a body is discovered floating near the ruins of an old plantation house on the proposed site of the development, Bay is forced to confront her fears and admit that one thing is certain-someone is making a killing in real estate.

Reviews - What do customers think about In For A Penny (Bay Tanner Mysteries)?

Discovered on Hilton Head  Apr 8, 2006
Arriving on the island (Hilton Head) for one of my quarterly visits, I stopped at the book store and was attracted to the "Local Authors" table. I picked up In for a Penny and took it to my villa.

I got so involved in the plot, and taken by recognizing the settings, that I read well into the night and straight through the next day. I enjoyed everything about this book, including the wonderful quotes from Bartlett's.

On day 3 I went back to the book store and bought the second in the series. I did force myself to do things in addition to reading for the remainder of my stay, but I am now hooked and will savor reading all of the Bay Tanner mysteries.
I could have put it down but I didn't want to...  Oct 4, 2001
In for a Penny was a good solid read with well-drawn characters that had believable relationships between them. I look forward to the next book in the series.
You won't be able to put it down!  Sep 30, 2001
Excellent plot with interesting characters! This is a great mystery with lots of twists and turns - has excellent and accurate descriptions of the South Carolina coast and its people. A great "beach" read, perfect for anyone who loves a good mystery or wants to escape in an engrossing story...
In For A Penny  Aug 5, 2001
The package had arrived by the time I got home from work on Friday. I tore into the package and then tore into the book. Didn't stop until I finished on Saturday! The book may be called "In for a penny", but you will be "In" for a great read!
Great Read for For Lovers of Mystery and The Lowcountry  Feb 12, 2001
Take this one to the beach but put on a lot of sun screen before you go. The plot will grab you and the afternoon and pages will fly by. Wall does a great job of keeping the narrative moving while evoking the beauty and unique culture of the coastal South Carolina lowcountry.
