When Marshfield Manor hosts a charity event, Grace Wheaton, the mansion’s curator and manager, is happy to lend a helping hand—until a killer makes an unwanted donation…
With the town clock in desperate need of repair, local lawyer Joyce Swedburg and her ex-husband, Dr. Leland Keay, are trying to put their differences aside to organize a benefit at Marshfield Manor to raise money to restore the beautiful timepiece. While Grace appreciates the opportunity to support such a good cause, the tension between the unhappy exes is giving her the urge to put both of the organizers in time out.
But after Leland collapses on stage during the festivities, poisoned, Grace suspects there was more going on behind the scenes. Now, she’s in a race to catch a ticked off murderer, and, if she’s going to prevent anyone else from getting hurt, every second will count…

Here is what I thought

The construction work on Grace’s house is going really good, she is actually surprised at how well Hillary is doing with the job. They were actually getting a long a little bit.

Grace attends an event where a doctor is killed and it’s back to sleuthing. She finds out there are a few people who had reason to want him dead. While looking for a killer Hillary finds a hidden door in her basement which sends her on a quest to see where it goes and finds out it goes all the way to her neighbors house.

Grace’s love life is not going to well and a lot of it has to do with her just not being over Jack yet, but I think she got that boost she needed towards the end and I hope the next guy she meets can get her full attention.

The mystery is really good as well, there was a lot of good clues and red herrings and I was pretty sure I knew why the doctor was killed but I was having a time pin pointing the killer so that was fun.

Can’t wait to see what trouble Grace gets into next!

      It really is a nice thing when the series still does good since a lot of these cozy mystery series are pretty on going. 🙂

      If you could only see all the series I am not caught up on. 😉 I really am bad at them but I am trying hard to get caught up on ones I have especially my mystery books. 🙂

  1. I haven’t listened to anything read by Emily Durante but it sounds like I need to try! I read the first few books in this series but than haven’t been back. I loved the setting and would love to see all that’s going on there new. This sounds like a fun read!
