Hello 11, my old friend!
I almost had to fall back on my new by-accident book, going all pedantic and pointing out that technically, Australia is an island, because at first I didn't think I had anything else. Then I remembered I have a Death on Demand waiting to be read, Don't Go Home by Carolyn Hart, and it's set on the fictional Broward's Rock, off the coast of South Carolina - it doesn't even have a bridge; one must get to this fictional small island community by boat.

Not everyone in town is ready to give him a glowing review.
As Annie attempts damage control, her friend Marian Kenyon gets in a heated argument with Griffith. It’s a fight Annie won’t soon forget—especially after the author turns up dead.
Despite an array of suspects to match Griffith’s cast of characters—and a promise to her husband, Max, to steer clear of sleuthing—Annie’s not about to let the police throw the book at her friend when the real killer remains at large…
