It's the dead of winter and struggling actress and wedding-cake decorator Piper Donovan is thrilled to be in warm and romantic Sarasota, Florida, enjoying the powdery white beaches, soothing seas, and golden sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. She and her family are there to celebrate her beloved cousin's wedding. Not only is Piper creating the sugar-sand-dollar-festooned wedding cake, she's also the maid of honor.

But a cloud seems to hover over the whole affair. Shortly after a bridesmaid mysteriously disappears, a kindly neighbor's car is run off the road and a prospective witness, an innocent Amish teenager, is threatened to keep silent. Then a body is found on the wedding beach. With the nuptials threatened, it falls to Piper to unmask a killer. Could it be the wedding planner with something to hide? A doctor and his wife who collect unusual Japanese figurines? The best man, an ex-drug dealer with lecherous eyes and roving hands? What about her cousin's future stepfather - or even the bridegroom himself?

As Piper gets close to figuring out who's been covering his guilty footprints in the sand, the cunning killer has already set his sights on Piper as his next victim!

Listener Opinions

    " "Footprints in the Sand" is a typical Mary Jane Clark suspense/mystery. It's a great read for a weekend, vacation, or a day at the beach. It's not heavy, but it certainly isn't a light read either. The chapters are super short, which I like, and the story moves very fast. I love how Piper and Jack's relationship is beginning to blossom. I love a little romance mixed in with my mysteries. I also like how Ms. Clark adds a little "research" to each of her stories. The "research" for "Footprints in the Sand" was Amish life and Florida's sea life. I loved the Amish proverbs and how their life is lived in today's world. I did not realize Florida had a rather large Amish community. The incorporation about the sea turtles nesting was pretty cool. I vacation to the east coast of Florida each summer during sea turtle nesting season. The sea turtles are a major part of Florida's every day living. "

    " I read this book because I have enjoyed this author's past work. I found this story was fast moving and fun to read. The author does a good job not giving the reader to many clues until she is ready to reveal the person behind the murder. I will seek out this author again in the future. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monti | 1/23/2014

    " Pretty good mystery. Although I had narrowed it down to a couple of suspects...the ending was not obvious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 10/19/2013

    " I liked the setting of this book, at a Florida beach. Really, my only issue with this book is that the ended was kind of quick. She spends like 350 pages of people dieing, then the last 16 or so of the main character almost dieing and the explaining who the killer was. Needs more suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette Meier | 10/14/2013

    " I love how Mary Jane Clark's mysteries have you suspecting everyone until the very end. Her weaving of truths, facts and suppositions really keeps you guessing all throughout!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 7/21/2013

    " Love the manner in which Mary Jane Clark sets up her mystery stories by introducing you to all the possible suspects in the beginning chapters and having you work thru her stories trying to figure out who the villain is. Her work is reminiscent of Agatha Christie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 7/13/2013

    " Another good piper story. Sea turtle conservation, Amish customs and a murder mystery in sunny florida. "

    " I really enjoyed this mystery thriller. The author led you to believe that several could be the killer, but actually one that I never would have guessed. That's the kind of book I like! It was a very easy format to read with short terse sentences with an easy to follow plot line. "
