A hilarious whodunit set on the beautiful island of Nantucket, ACK and Back is a tongue-in-cheek mystery, emphasizing the importance of love, friendship, and the delicate art of navigating family dynamics. Filled with lighthearted anecdotal history and an insider’s knowledge of contemporary island life, this novel by Dennie Doran weaves an engaging plot, full of suspense and geriatric derring-do. With the return of the loveable characters from 2011’s ACK Attack, this sequel reunites readers with the endearing Marshall family, as well as the saucy students in Maggie’s classes. Filled with sidesplitting family shenanigans, a baby-boomer romance, and vivid local color, this engaging novel is as entertaining as it is informative.
When middle school teacher Maggie Marshall is inadvertently mistaken for an undercover cop, she finds herself targeted for terror by a ruthless gang of dastardly thugs. As she avoids the villain’s clutches, she must also come to grips with the consequences of a near romance with longtime family friend, David Malenga. Despite the help of her zany family, particularly the quirky Aunt Amy, Maggie learns some important lessons about herself, her relationships, and the hazards of getting in the way of nasty bad guys.
