Mystery Amateur Sleuth
Itâ€™s a nippy spring in Tinkerâ€™s Cove, Maine, and Lucy
Stone canâ€™t wait to join her friend Sue in England for a
â€śHeads Up!â€ť hat exhibition. But at Moreton Manor,
privileged life isnâ€™t always tea and crumpets . . .
Although the earl of the house and his sister are
surprisingly accommodating to their jetlagged guests, Lucy
feels uneasy after a fallen portrait sparks talk of a
deadly family omen. The bad vibes come in quicklyâ€”snobby
Aunt Millicent and her handmaiden Harrison unexpectedly
drop by for the exhibition, and meals with the family are
consistently tense. But real trouble begins when a body,
bludgeoned by the chapelâ€™s gold-plated reliquary, is found
in a hidden, sealed off room. Stranger still, the corpse
is identified as Harrisonâ€™s son, Cyril.
While Cyril wasnâ€™t exactly a gentleman, and itâ€™s unclear
what business he had on the property, one thingâ€™s for sure
â€”the criminal is privy to Moreton Manor secrets. And Lucy
has a hunch that the killer has been in her company all
along, just waiting for a chance to make blueblood run red
. . .
â€śCounts, countesses, and corpses highlight Lucy Stoneâ€™s
trip across the pond . . . A peek into British country
life provides a nice break.â€ť
