Mystery Cozy | Holiday
It’s late autumn in Tinker’s Cove, Maine, and the last
surviving flowers on Lucy Stone’s porch have fallen victim
to the first frost of the season. But as the part-time
reporter learns, this cold November morning will claim
more than potted plants . . .
Besides the annual Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving Day,
Lucy expects the approaching holiday to be a relatively
uneventful one—until she finds beautiful Alison Franklin
dead and frozen in Blueberry Pond. No one knows much about
Alison, except that she was the daughter of wealthy
investor Ed Franklin and struggled quietly with drug
addiction. Police blame her death on an accidental
overdose, but Lucy can’t understand what terrible forces
could lead a privileged woman to watery ruin . . .
Alison’s funeral service is just as puzzling. Many believe
Ed’s young—and very pregnant—new wife, Mireille, divided
the family, leaving Alison to wither on the vine. Did
Mireille truly adore her stepchild as Ed claims, or did
she pit father against daughter for personal gain?
As a state of unrest descends on Tinker’s Cove, Lucy is
thrown into a full-scale investigation. Now, in a race
against time, Lucy must beat the killer to the finish line
—or she can forget about stuffing and cranberry sauce . .
