Lucy Stone Mystery Series, #4
Add to Wish List
Mystery Woman Sleuth
Fall has come to the peaceful Maine town of Tinker's Cove,
and amidst all the seasonal glory appears the most
beautiful sight of all: the yellow school bus. As parents
rejoice and kids grumble, it's back to school time, and
for mother-of-four Lucy Stone, it isn't a moment too soon.
Requested by her twelve-year-old daughter to "get a life",
Lucy has done just that: she has a job at the local paper
and is taking a night class in Victorian English
Literature. As if juggling family, job, and school wasn't
enough, the sometime sleuth now has another mystery to
solve. And it starts with a bang. A bomb goes off with the
noon lunch bell at the local elementary school, but not
before all the kids are safely evacuated and Carol Crane,
the new assistant principal, is hailed as a hero. By the
time the smoke clears, the fallout has resulted in murder.
Everyone is stunned when the most popular teacher at
school is arrested for the crime. But not everyone is
buying the open-and-shut case, including Lucy Stone, who
senses there's more to things than meets the eye.
Especially when she discovers that her sexy English
professor - who could pose a dangerous temptation to a
happily married woman - may know more about the murder
than he's telling. It soon becomes clear that Lucy is
flirting with danger in more ways than one, as sizzling
secrets and explosive surprises provide a primer for the
most diabolical of motives. Hot on the trail of a clever
killer, this seasoned mother of four must harness the
courage and cool aplomb necessary to get to the bottom of
a crime that could be repeated - and just might give Lucy
an education on the fine art of murder.
