Lucy Stone is excited to join her friend Sue at Moreton Manor, home to the Earl of Wickham. She's there to enjoy the "Heads Up!" hat exhibition and have a taste of the English aristocratic lifestyle, but her peaceful holiday is shattered when a person who's been bludgeoned to death is found in a hidden, sealed-off room . . .
Was the victim trying to make off with the family riches? And can an amateur detective from small-town America ever get to the bottom of this very English mystery? Lucy puts her sleuthing skills to the test.
This wonderfully fun and cozy mystery from New York Times bestseller Leslie Meier is a delight from start to finish.
