The next in Maia Chance’s dazzlingly fun Prohibition-era
caper series featuring society matron Lola Woodby and her
stalwart Swedish cook, Berta.
The Discreet Retrieval Agency is doing a brisk holiday
business of retrieving lost parcels, grandmas, and stolen
wreaths. But with their main squeezes Ralph and Jimmy once
more on the back burner, both Lola and Berta pine for a
holiday out of New York City. So when they receive a
mysterious Christmas card requesting that they retrieve an
antique ring at a family gathering in Maple Hill, Vermont,
they jump at the chance. Sure, the card is signed Anonymous
and it’s vaguely threatening, but it’s Vermont.
In Maple Hill, several estranged members of the wealthy
Goddard family gather. And no sooner do Lola and Berta
recover the ring—from Great-Aunt Daphne Goddard’s arthritic
finger—than Mrs. Goddard goes toes-up, poisoned by her
Negroni cocktail on ice. When the police arrive, Lola and
Berta are caught-red-handed with the ring, and it becomes
clear that they were in fact hired not for their
cracker-jack retrieving abilities, but to be scapegoats for
With no choice but to unmask the killer or be thrown in the
slammer, Lola and Berta’s investigations lead them deep into
the secrets of Maple Hill. There, they must find out once
and for all who’s nice...and who’s naughty.
