Bake Sale Murder
In this book, ever since local developer Fred Stanton and his wife, Mimi, built five modular homes next door to Lucy Stone's farmhouse, life just hasn't been the same. With Mimi complaining about everything from the state of LucyÕs lawn to another neighbor's lovable dog, quaint Tinker's Cove, Maine, is now entangled in cul-de-sac politics and backstabbing. And when Mimi doesn't show up for her shift at The Hat and Mitten Fund bake sale, the scent of burnt sugar leads Lucy to a shocking discovery - Mimi, face down on her kitchen floor - with a knife in her back. While the police start their investigation, Lucy gets busy writing up the murder for the local Pennysaver - and following a few leads of her own. Lucy knows the women in her neighborhood didn't like Mimi, but they certainly didn't want her dead... right? Could the murder have been committed by bossy Christine Cashman, an ex-marketing exec and current housewife who's running this year's bake sale like it's a board meeting? Or Bonnie Burkhart, the wife of the high schoolÕs football coach, who Mimi had actually threatened? And who is that mysterious homeless man skulking around the cemetery? Of course some people donÕt appreciate Lucy's snooping - including Mimi's very belligerent son. But when a rock comes crashing through her living room window accompanied by a note telling her 'you could be next', Lucy's more determined than ever to get to the bottom of things... even if it means breaking a few eggs along the way.
