I had a very interesting question at the reference desk recently, from someone who was looking for crime/suspense novels that were set near (or on) water. This particular person needed books in large print, which narrowed the field a bit, but it was so much fun coming up with titles set in seaside towns, on islands, or on boats that I thought I’d share my findings with you. The links all go to the records in the library catalog.
