Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Cozy
Fresh from her sleuthing triumph in Mail-Order Murder,
Lucy Stone of Tinker's Cove is taking time off from work
to organize her three children and get ready for a fourth.
But besides shuttling the kids to school, baseball
practice, and Madame Tatiana's ballet studio, Lucy finds
herself on the trail of Caro - Caroline Hutton - a retired
dance teacher who has mysteriously disappeared. And to
make the summer really murder, the irascible local
hardware merchant, Morrill Slack, takes a deathblow to the
head with a video camera, and Franny Small - the hapless
salesgirl with the perfect motive - has no alibi for how
she spent the afternoon of the murder. When Lucy's not
eating peanut butter-and-fluffernutter sandwiches (which
the newest member of the Stone family seems to crave
incessantly), she's busy hitting up police detective
Barney Culpepper for everything he knows.
With a little
research and a few trips to the library (between sewing
tutus and broiling burgers), Lucy tries to discover just
what happened to Caro - and whom she was protecting when
she vanished. Racing against the clock to save her
neighbor's life - and get her own seven-year-old prima
ballerina on stage - Lucy wraps up the Big Case just in
time for a visit from the stork.
