I voluntarily reviewed this book
Published: September 19, 2016
Number of pages: 404
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Series: Hampton's Murder Mystery #2
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 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.
I have been enjoying this series. Even though it is a mystery series it has a sort light and airy feeling about it. It was nice to go back and visit Antonia and the Inn again even if a murder was involved. I think it would be fun to go into the old homes as she does but again I would not want to find a dead body. She does seem to get herself into little binds which is all part of the fun of the book. Another thing I liked about this story was we got to see Antonia and Joseph's relationship go a little further. I liked Joseph helped Antonia by doing research for her. The author kept me guessing until the very end which is something I think makes a good mystery. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
