Episode 8.5
8 February 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Florence seems to have played a minor part in this series, her romance with Patrice being a major thread in this series.

It has led to speculation that some significant event will happen between the couple and it is unlikely to be the sound of wedding bells.

As Florence and Patrice make wedding plans. The Mahi Mahi festival gets in full swing.

Tiana Palmer work's in Patrice's bar, she is very popular. The fishing village of Belle Mer has chosen her to be the festival queen

She sets off on a boat with offerings of bread and rum. Despite being alone at sea, she is found stabbed to death.

Patrice's best friend Harrison is one of the suspects, as he has financial problems. However some other suspects emerge. Mooney and the team look at mobile phone footage for clues.

The surprise was that the murderer was revealed at the end of the episode. We were informed that it would be a two-parter.

I did enjoy this because it looked like a cunning murder leaving me to wonder how it was done. Although I could not come up with anything like Officer Ruby's explanation that it was a scuba diver underwater waiting for the right moment to kill Tiana.
