Item Description...
Christy Castleman has a gift for writing best-selling mysteries. Suddenly she's thrust into the role of a real-life sleuth when she finds an antique bottle containing a desperate plea for help. With the aid of the local Red Hat Society, she tries to determine who wrote the note. Can she discover that person's whereabouts before it's too late?

Publishers Description
Christy Castleman, a pretty, young novelist, has made a name for herself writing books about mystery and intrigue. The Sassy Snowbirds, a group of lively ladies, spread fun, friendship, and good deeds around the seaside town of Summer Breeze. Everyone is content in their cozy world-until a message is found in a small Victorian glass bottle half buried in the sand.
"Call the police. Someone is trying to kill me."
Believing the note to have been written by a missing realtor, the Sassy Snowbirds jump into the mystery with Christy. Using her research and know-how as a novelist, the young woman and her unflappable friends succeed where a team of forensic experts stall. But solving real life crimes is much more dangerous than writing them, and Christy must fight for her life when she uncovers a shocking truth and a real murderer.
A contemporary Southern cozy mystery with a touch of romance, " When the Sandpiper Calls" is a fast-paced and inspirational look at life choices, consequences, second chances, and deepening faith.

Good mystery  Aug 31, 2008
I realy enjoyed this book. It is a true "curl up on a rainy afternoon and get cozy" type of book. i am planning on reading more of this authors books.
This was good!  Jul 19, 2008
When the Sandpiper Calls by Peggy Darty is a hum-digger of a mystery and, even better, a book that is populated with interesting and believable characters. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.

The print in the paperback version I bought was a bit larger than usual. With my aging eyes this made it easier to read than many books I've picked up lately.

I will note that there was one little (but to me, glaring) error I found with When the Sandpiper Calls. In the book Christy Castleman is writing, she refers to a Spanish Galleon from the late eighteen hundreds wreaking on Shipwreak, no Spanish Galleons in the 1800's, late 1500's maybe. Oh, well, just a little error that *Christy's* editor might have found when she sent in her manuscript. Speaking of which, did one of her family or friends *send* in that manuscript after she ended up...oops, better not give away the ending!
Grab your coziest chair for this cozy mystery  Feb 5, 2007
Christy Castleman is a novelist who's first book was a hit and is now trying to finish up her second novel. One day she finds a bottle buried in the sand with a message asking for help because they are going to be killed. The Sassy Snowbirds, a group of women in the Red Hat society, think it's the missing realtor who wrote the note and are eager to assist Christy in what feels like her mystery novel come to life. While investigating, she also peaks the interest of the new guy in town, military veteran Dan Brockman. In between juggling this new relationship, Christy uses her detective skills to find that the murder may be connected to a jewelry heist in New York from back in the 1980s. Suddenly the little town is involved in a series of events that will shake up the community, with Christy at the center of it all.

I love a good mystery and this book definitely makes my top ten list of mystery novels. I've enjoyed Peggy Darty's novels from the Palisades series and her writing in this book is even better. The story is very descriptive and keeps you wanting more. Christy was a good lead, she's strong yet sensitive, and even when annoyed she doesn't let it show. I really liked her relationship with her former fiance's dad. She's still close to him even though his son is dead, and he treats her like the daughter in law he would have had, allowing her to bring him food, visit him often and asking him for advice on stuff. Other people might have turned away from this awkward situation, but it showed Christy's compassion for what would have been her future family. I love the Sassy Snowbirds because I enjoy reading stories that involve Red Hats. I only hope when I get to be that age I'm as spunky and adventurous as they are! They always seem to be looking for excitement to happen. I won't spoil the ending, so let's just say I totally wasn't expecting it and I don't think I could have been as calm as Christy was when she found out who the killer was. I highly recommend this book for fans of cozy mysteries or anyone that enjoys a really good page turning read. I'm really looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
Hats Off!  Nov 16, 2005
...not just red hats either! What a delightfully fun read. A host of quirky characters, a devilish villain and a perfectly breezy setting. This is perfect for Fall evenings - find a cozy chair, a nice lit fireplace and a warm cup of cider and treat yourself to the charm of Peggy Darty's SANDPIPER. You won't be disappointed.
Perfect for a Chilly Winter Night.  Nov 12, 2005
I love cozy mysteries, and this one fit the bill as cold winds blew through Colorado. I read of Christy's amateur sleuthing on the beaches of Florida and longed to have seafood with this mystery writer as we sat in a pricey restaurant overlooking the ocean. The book has great characters with intriguing relationships, an off-stage murder, and plenty of suspects. Get yourself a creamy cocoa breve and curl up to enjoy Peggy Darty's latest book.
