Synopsis

Springtime in the Hamptons comes late, but it’s worth it! Brisk walks on the bright chilly beach, cinnamon buns at tea time, blooming forsythia and….murder?
Innkeeper Antonia Bingham has hit her stride as the proprietor of East Hampton’s Windmill Inn. After solving a series of murders, Antonia has taken on more work as an estate manager, giving her entree her into some of the area’s most glamorous homes. Once inside, Antonia checks the heat, looks for leaks or damage, and finds the occasional dead body. As the police can’t be trusted, it’s up to Antonia—a modern day Miss Marple, with an overly enthusiastic adoration of carbs and a kamikaze love-life—to put her skills of deduction to use. Nestle in with a steaming mug of your favorite tea and get ready to peek behind the gates of the mansions of the Hamptons, as Antonia Bingham solves another shocking and devastating murder.

What I Thought:

This was the first Hampton's Murder Mystery that I have read.  I found it a little slow at first, but it soon picked up.  Carrie Doyle is a new to me author, and I found that I like her writing style.  The characters of this book were well developed and they seemed real.  The setting of this series is also great.  Antonia is an estate manager in East Hampton, and when she checks an estate where a friend of the owner is staying, she finds him dead in the bathtub.  She doesn't trust the police, so it is up to her to solve the crime.  This one kept me guessing till the very end and had some good twists and turns.  I enjoyed visiting the Hamptons through this book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
