macleod-hilaryHilary MacLeod

Hilary MacLeod’s first murder mystery, Revenge of the Lobster Lover, won her a CBC Bookie award. Hilary is a former CBC radio writer and broadcaster with experience in Montreal and the Maritimes. She sets The Shores mystery series in a village very similar to Sea View, PEI where Hilary has spent summers since 1990. The novels draw from this location – the landscape, characters, way of life and speaking come from the author’s observation of and bond with that community. The Shores novels are village mysteries, but they’re far from typical. The view of the place and the people is humourous, affectionate, and satirical, but also touched with dark moments and themes.

Listen to Hilary reading from The Shores series every Sunday at 7 pm online or on demand at
