Bunny HopJanice BennettWhen Annike McKinley of Events Unlimited agrees to organize the Easter fundraising fete for the Land's End Yacht Club, she is unprepared for the mayhem-and murder-that await. The clubhouse comes complete with a body hanging from the yardarm. Much to the regret of Merit County's Sheriff Owen Sarkisian, it is not a pirate but a lawyer-one with more enemies than friends, even in his family.While the developers for a proposed golf course try to obtain land that the yacht club had used for collateral on a loan held by the victim, Sarkisian must juggle the murder investigation with his work on continuing jewel robberies.Meanwhile Annike deals with a kayaking scavenger hunt, a silent auction complete with irate caterers, hordes of giant bunnies, plastic eggs with a sinister filling, and a host of other fun-filled activities. Then the body of one of the suspects, dressed as a fuzzy pink Easter Bunny, is found drifting in a canoe with a buttercream egg crammed in its mouth and the fun-and danger-really begin.Readers of Cold Turkey will enjoy meeting up with Annike, Owen and other friends from Upper River Gulch again.I picked my way between whopper bunnies into the Galleon and began the search for the Easter decorations the commodore had assured me lay neatly boxed away in ... They were of the cut-out shape variety, all cartoonish in pastel colors.
