  City Sidebar: The Book  
  "Cara and her 'City Sidebar' unmask the extraordinary lurking behind the ordinary-and leave me laughing all the way."
-Ron Kurtz, author
   
 
      Murder and mayhem in a charming seaside village...  
      First, a little background. The Nassau County Writers and Poets Society wanted to find a way to put more money in its treasury. David Tuttle, who was president at the time, suggested that we band together to write a group novel. Each of us would write two or three chapters of the plot David proposed. He would also act as senior editor and arbiter of all disputes. Ten of us wrote what was to become the first book in the Wilson Mystery Series; Murder in Fernandina
 
                 
  "Local readers and those who visit will enjoy the many references to familiar places on the island, the historic anecdotes and the well-developed sense of place."
-Alice Walsh,
Fernandina Beach News-Leader
   

The Pelican of Fernandina
Captain Wilson’s fifth adventure, begun by the late David Tuttle, is Wilson’s most dangerous yet, and it takes the combined efforts of his entire team to extricate him from two sets of bad guys — a fed and a fanatic bent on mass destruction. When Cara Curtin took up the tale, she discovered that the team is distracted from saving its captain by pregnancies, too much local history, and a very important anniversary celebration. To complicate things further, a scary group has taken over one of the town’s stately homes. As always, the Pelican watches it all to help when he can—and pick up the pieces when he can’t.

  "Murder in Fernandina is a good little read with a 'gotcha' storyline and an extra-special sense of place. The combined authors have done a credible job of telling an intriguing tale in the most interesting of locales.
The new detective's hard work and clever forensic investigation on the murder case pay off in the end, both for the case and for the reader. Don't miss this book!!!"

-Teresa Sopp,
Amelia Islander Magazine
