"Reading a new Lucy Stone mystery is like catching up with a dear old friend." — Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling authorIt's a nippy spring in Tinker's Cove, Maine, and so Lucy Stone can't wait to join her friend Sue at the Earl of Wickham's manor in England for the "Heads Up!" hat exhibition— even if she has to spend her entire holiday curtseying. But at Moreton Manor, privileged life isn't always tea and crumpets . . . Although Perry, the earl of the house, and his sister, Poppy, 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. Considering the weapon and the clandestine location, Lucy wouldn't be shocked if the murder was an inside job. Cyril wasn't exactly a gentleman, and it's unclear what business he had on the property. Was the victim trying to make off with the family riches before meeting his end? Or was a scorned country squire looking to settle an ancient indiscretion for good? One thing's for sure— the criminal is privy to Moreton Manor secrets . . . To end the reign of terror, Lucy must keep her ear to the ground and mind time-honored traditions— no matter how unusual. Because Lucy has a hunch that the killer has been in her company all along, just waiting for a chance to make blueblood run red . . .Praise for Leslie Meier and her Lucy Stone Mysteries "I like Lucy Stone a lot, and so will readers." — Carolyn Hart "Leslie Meier writes with sparkle and warmth." — Chicago Sun Times "The Lucy Stone mysteries will appeal to fans of domestic mysteries." — Booklist "Mothers everywhere will identify with Lucy Stone and the domestic problems she encounters." — Publishers Weekly
