Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Cozy
Ever since local developer Fred Stanton and his wife,
Mimi, built five modular homes next door to Lucy Stoneâ€™s
farmhouse, life just hasnâ€™t been the same. With Mimi
complaining about everything from the state of Lucyâ€™s lawn
to another neighborâ€™s lovable dog, quaint Tinkerâ€™s Cove,
Maine, is now entangled in cul-de-sac politics and
backstabbing. And when Mimi doesnâ€™t show up for her shift
at The Hat and Mitten Fund bake sale, the scent of burnt
sugar leads Lucy to a shocking discovery: Mimi, face down
on her kitchen floorâ€”with a knife in her back.
While the police start their investigation, Lucy gets busy
writing up the murder for the local Pennysaverâ€”and
following a few leads of her own. Lucy knows the women in
her neighborhood didnâ€™t like Mimi, but they certainly
didnâ€™t want her dead . . . right?
Could the murder have been committed by bossy Christine
Cashman, an ex-marketing exec and current housewife whoâ€™s
running this yearâ€™s bake sale like itâ€™s a board meeting?
Or Bonnie Burkhart, the wife of the high schoolâ€™s football
coach, who Mimi had actually threatened? And who is that
mysterious homeless man skulking around the cemetery? Of
course some people donâ€™t appreciate Lucyâ€™s snoopingâ€”
including Mimiâ€™s very belligerent son. But when a rock
comes crashing through her living room window accompanied
by a note telling her â€śyou could be next,â€ť Lucyâ€™s more
determined than ever to get to the bottom of things. . .
even if it means breaking a few eggs along the way . . .
