At Logan Internation Airport Tuesday, one of the Cessna's left-engines gave out as it was arriving from Nantucket. It landed safely, but over Memorial Day weekend two other planes had similar problems, which has led the company to voluntarily ground the fleet.

I tend to suspect it is because that regional fleet of aircraft have all been maintained by the same regional Maintenance provider, who probably used improper or inadequate maintenance techniques.
If an airline has all it's fleet maintained by one outfit which screws up then FAA have to assume there are systemic failures across the whole fleet's maintenance.
Well, maybe its about time someone came down on them...That beautiful 15 minute trip to the islands could end in tragedy.
