Cod Only Knows, the 6th book in The Shores series was launched at the Sea View Community Hall, PEI on August 30, 2017.

Abel Mack has gone fishin' -- and gone missin'. He may be casting bout for the on that got away 30 years before -- a record-setting 300 pound cod that trails mayhem and murder in its wake.  Mountie Jane Jaieson fears Abel may have been the victim of exposure or foul play. Abel's wife, Gus, insists he's alive and will return. Others worry he may just be a figment of his wife's imagination.
