Mystery Amateur Sleuth
It’s a nippy spring in Tinker’s Cove, Maine, and Lucy
Stone can’t wait to join her friend Sue in England for a
“Heads Up!” hat exhibition. But at Moreton Manor,
privileged life isn’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 quickly—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 chapel’s gold-plated reliquary, is found
in a hidden, sealed off room. Stranger still, the corpse
is identified as Harrison’s son, Cyril.
While Cyril wasn’t exactly a gentleman, and it’s unclear
what business he had on the property, one thing’s for sure
—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
. . .
“Counts, countesses, and corpses highlight Lucy Stone’s
trip across the pond . . . A peek into British country
life provides a nice break.”
