Cottage on Gooseberry Bay: A Geek Thing Paperback – September 29, 2021
Enhance your purchase
Ainsley Holloway had come to Gooseberry Bay to find answers about her past. She’d come to find an explanation for the dreams that haunted her after the death of the cop who’d both rescued and raised her. And she’d come to identify the family she couldn’t remember but knew in her heart she’d once belonged to.
Ainsley hoped that by finding these answers, she’d also find healing. She hoped that once she’d resurrected the memories buried deep in her mind, she’d find peace.
The Cottage at Gooseberry Bay is a series about, not only finding answers, but finding hope.
It’s a series about family and friendship.
It’s a series about shared holidays, festivals, and celebrations.
It’s a series about shared heartbreak and hardship.
And it’s a series about the bond that can be forged amongst strangers when tragedy binds two or more individuals with a common goal.
In book 7 in the series, Ainsley is approached by representatives from The Geek Squad who hope to hire her to find a missing physicist who they believe has met with foul play although they have no evidence to support this assumption. The cops won't help given the lack of evidence so Ainsley agrees to look into things in exchange for their help with the annual haunted house for which she'd been recruited to line up volunteers.
Meanwhile, Parker, Josie, and Jemma, are all involved in the annual Halloween festivities, Ainsley continues to look for Avery, and Adam begins making plans for changes in his own routine.

After Ainsley Holloway’s adoptive father passed away, she found a photograph of a woman with two young children, and, for reasons Ainsley couldn’t explain, she felt a connection to the people and started doubting her past. In her search for the truth about her past, Ansley and her two Bernese Mountain Dogs, Kai and Kallie, moved from Georgia to Washington State and rented a cozy cottage in Gooseberry Bay. Ainsley, who originally planned to stay for only a month or two, quickly made friends, settled into the community, and opened Ainsley Holloway Investigations.
In this installment, Skeet and Ape, two intellectually gifted yet socially challenged teens, are concerned that Ivan Beklund, their friend and retired professor, might be in trouble approach Ainsley. Ansley isn’t sure if the reclusive and paranoid professor is in danger or if he had simply forgotten to tell anyone about his plans and agrees to look into Professor Beklund’s disappearance. The teens are without funds, and Ainsley needs zombie volunteers for the haunted house, so they barter a deal. Meanwhile, Parker Peterson, Ainsley’s friend and local newspaper reporter, isn’t sure why, but she gets a bad feeling as she watches a nicely dressed man ferry from the yacht in a dinghy and walk through town as if he had a specific goal in mind.
Ainsley is supposed to be a PI, and as such, should know about following clues and latest discoveries. She has been looking for her sister, Avery, ever since she has found out about her. And she looks at pictures and tries to jog her memory and moves at less than a snail's pace.
Meanwhile every reader is probably shaking her head and saying, Hey! just get a DNA test. The tests are cheap and available and could tell Ainsley if she has any relatives and their degree of relativity.
So why doesn't the author do just that? Perhaps she figures it would bring the series to a premature end. But it would make her look so much more "with it" and intelligent.
Besides, it would open other literary possibilities. Ainsley could find other relatives, initially, but not her sister. She could learn more of her family's history before finding her sister. Or the sisters could be reunited. Please, Ms. Daley, think about it. This opens a whole new door
In A Geek Thing a group of five self described high school aged geeks come to Ainsley to get help locating their friend a retired professor/AI enthusiast. The geeks are worried their hermit-like friend had met with foul play.
While Ainsley, her friends, and the geeks are trying to find the professor, a stranger comes to town and turns up dead. One of the suspects is, of course, the missing professor. After the sheriff arrests someone that Ainsley and her friends think is innocent, the group also sets out to solve that murder.
There is a lot more than usual going on in this book than the rest of the series and all of it was enjoyable. I love the addition of the the Geeks and hope they start showing up in more books. I like the idea of some romances among the group and I really want the missing sister identified.
