Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Retiree Ivy Beasley, a college student? Interested in penning her memoirs, Ivy decides to take a creative writing course. But its hard to find time to put pen to paper when this current chapter is so full of lies, jealousy and murder…

 

Rumors are flying around the village of Barrington about Mrs. Winchen Blatch, a reclusive widow living alone in her old farmhouse. In the past few weeks, the widow claims she has been tormented by ghostly visitations, so she hires Ivy and her fellow investigators at Enquire Within to get to the bottom of the mystery. Ivys new classes are very close to the widows farmhouse, perfect for combining studying and snooping…

 

With each new clue—a dark chamber, a smoking cigar and an amorous lodger—it becomes harder to separate fact from fiction. And when the ghost is revealed to be flesh and blood, the lonely widow may be in more trouble than Ivy and her team can handle…

In this new series, the author of the Lois Meade mysteries turns the spotlight on the beloved character of Ivy Beasley, who's found a silver lining in her golden years as an amateur sleuth. Original.

Ivy Beasley, the beloved cantankerous spinster from the Lois Meade mysteries, has found a silver lining in her golden years as an amateur sleuth.
