    This was an easy cozy mystery read that kept me turning the pages. Being the first book in the series we are introduced to the main characters and given their backstory. Maisie and her Momma have a close relationship that is sweet. The mystery is quickly paced with several suspects and some humor as Maisie is determined to find the killer and not lose her job as the manager at the Oceanside Hotel.

I would have liked to have learned more about Maisie and how she became the manager of the Oceanside. Not sure if I would pick up another in the series.

One of her first assignments is to organize and manage a Comic-Con convention. As a crowd of cosplayers descend on the hotel, Maisie must ensure things run smoothly. However, this proves difficult when she finds the gaming tycoon, Norman Olsen, dead in the hotel pool. When Olsen’s death is a homicide, Maisie catches heat from her boss. Maisie puts on her amateur detective hat to try and find the killer, regain order, save her job, and maybe even her life. I thought this is an amusing read. Maisie, her friends, and mother are entertaining characters, and I look forward to getting to know them better. This is a great poolside/beach/relaxing read. CeeCee James has written several other books including fictional cozy mysteries and non-fiction as well.

    Have enjoyed all of CeeCee James' books. I read book 2 of the Oceanside Mystery series first and enjoyed it so much I immediately purchased book 1. The book had a great flow and many twists and turns...even some chuckles. It put into perspective how Maisey ended up in Oceanside, Florida working at a resort. Momma is a hoot and I like how they love there little basset hound. The ending was a surprise and look forward to more adventures in Oceanside.

    In a similar spirit to the Angel Lake series, the author has done an excellent job in Oceanside Mystery. Maise has no idea what's in store at her new job, as hotel manager. Caring for her momma and loyal companion, Bingo, is her top priority, so she takes it upon herself to unravel the mystery of the Comic-Con, along with other strange occurrences at the hotel. The backdrop/setting to this cozy mystery is perfect, as the author takes you through the wonderful hotel.

But, besides all the usual little problems with the guests, something much worse happens in the middle of the convention – Maisie finds Norman Olsen, a famous computer deviser, dead on an inflatable armchair in the hotel’s swimming pool. All hell breaks loose, of course, police arrive, interviews take place, Maisie’s boss is shocked. Soon, there’s a whole list of suspects – the young and pretty widow, the son and business competitor, the young fellow who’d just been fired by Olsen, his girlfriend and her friend, the hotel’s young tennis instructor, even the receptionist… And, since Maisie also happens to be a mystery writer, she just can’t resist doing a bit of sleuthing of her own! A lovely read for every fan of cosy mysteries; a most likeable protagonist, a wonderful sense of humour, moments of real suspense and even of thoughtfulness and emotion as well. Makes us want to read more of Maisie’s adventures!

Is somebody trying to sabotage Maisie in her new job? The characters are well developed and very believable. The story has a great pace.

She is going to have to help solve this murder before the hotel owner loses faith in her abilities. There are some authors that are able to endow their characters with an accent and CeeCee James is one. I looked at the text and couldn’t really see why I found the voice of Maisie to be southern. The other characters were more fuzzy, sliding in and out of the story with very little impact. This is a cozy mystery that is an easy read, though I wasn’t always engaged and found it easy to put the book down and had to remind myself to pick up again.

Maisie is a fun heroine. She writes mystery novels on the side but never expects to have to use her expertise to solve a real murder. Momma and the other secondary characters have interesting quirks; I love the pans rattling as Momma cooks. I didn't identify the real murderer which is a prerequisite for me in murder mysteries; I want it to be a mystery and not figure it out halfway through the book. This is the first book in a cozy murder series, so I'll be looking forward to reading the rest of Maisie's adventures.

Kinda hard to do that when a murder, an arson attempt and large and often rowdy convention crowds keep rearing their ugly heads.

I enjoyed this first book of the series, and getting to meet Momma as well as the other regular characters and of course Bingo. The murder mystery was good. For me however, it seemed to suddenly race to the conclusion near the end, like time was up and the author just threw everything together to end the book. I would have liked a little more information as to why Maisie suddenly knew who the murderer was, what gave it away to her, etc.

And to top things off, by making this well plotted story take place at a hotel, James has created an environment rife with lots of unborn possibilities for future books in this series. Definitely recommended!

    “Life isn’t so much about the smooth sailing, but what you do with the waves.” This is a fun cozy mystery that has a lot of potential for a good series. While it started a little slow, it quickly cranks up the suspense. There are a lot of good cliffhanger chapters, fun characters, and red herrings galore. I wish it focused a little more on the Florida setting but it is mostly contained within the hotel where lead character Maisie works. So I’m hoping that will change some as the series progresses “Life isn’t so much about the smooth sailing, but what you do with the waves.” This is a fun cozy mystery that has a lot of potential for a good series.

    I read a lot of heavy murder/crime drama books. Every once in a while, I need something a bit lighter. This book fit the bill. Yet, it wasn't quite a "can't put it down" kind of book either. I will say that I was surprised by the events at the end. It definitely took a turn for the darker side. I am not sure if there weren't enough clues to point to that person, or it was just a well-written plot twist. The main character and her mom are likable enough.

    Maisy Gets Her Man I liked reading about Maisy and her dog Bingo. A budding thriller writer and amateur sleuth she gathers clues galore from Bingo. Her mother is an eccentric, loveable woman who loves her daughter, but drives her mad. These characters make for an amusing story which is very entertaining. This was the first book that I have read about Maisy, but I intend reading the rest.

    And it all started with a murder, not! It started with a Comic-Con Convention. No, it started long before that. However, it came to a head at the Convention. It’s a good thing Maisie (of Louisa May Marigold Swenson for long) was there to show the local police what to do – all while she is writing her own mystery book. I enjoyed this book and recommend it. Even if I wasn’t sure who done it until close to the end (I was sure of who didn’t do it, though).

    Cute mystery I give this three stars because it could have been better. I liked the mystery but didn't connect with Maisy or her mother. The characters were ok but I just couldn't root for them. Took me a lot longer to finish reading the story and I only did it to see who the bad guy was. The wrap up of the story was quick or rushed to end the story.

    Bland but Ok Quick read and I am happy for that. There were a number of very obvious elements missing from the story, yet had they been explored sooner, the story would have been over as soon as it started. Saying what they are would require a spoiler alert warning. I gave this book three stars because I liked it enough to finish it, but barely.
