Life hasn't been the same for Lucy Stone since local developer Fred Stanton and his constantly complaining wife, Mimi, built five homes next door to her farmhouse. When Mimi doesn't show up for her shift at The Hat and Mitten Fund bake sale, Lucy makes a shocking discovery: Mimi, face down on her kitchen floor--dead. While the police investigate, Lucy gets busy following her own leads, though some people clearly don't appreciate her snooping. But when a rock with a threatening note attached comes crashing through her window, Lucy's more determined than ever to uncover the truth...even if it means breaking a few eggs along the way.
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 Lucy's 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?
