Blackwell North Amer
It's Valentine's Day In Tinker's Cove. And while the cupcakes Lucy Stone is baking for her children will have pink frosting and candy hearts, Lucy's thoughts aren't centered on sugary sentiments. She's barely arrived at her first board meeting of the newly-renovated library when Bitsy Howell, the new librarian, is found in the basement with a bullet in her heart.
The agitated board members assume that Bitsy was killed by an outsider, until Detective Lt. Horowitz arrives on the scene and shocks them all by announcing the killer is among them. As far as he's concerned, every member had ample opportunity to shoot Bitsy. And while he warns Lucy to keep her nose out of police affairs, she can't help but throw herself into the case.
Lucy was already aware that Bitsy's uppity big city ways rubbed some people in Tinker's Cove the wrong way. Then there was her tendency to gossip about the books her readers borrowed. But Lucy had a hunch that motives for the librarian's violent death ran a lot deeper.
Lucy relentlessly snoops into the curious lifestyles and shocking secrets of Tinker's Cove's most solid citizens... secrets that will plunge her into a terrifying confrontation with a conniving killer...
