Despite interruptions from her granddaughter Elizabeth, the harbormaster Domingo, a swarm of Island locals, and a few mysterious visitors, Victoria manages to get in a good bit of detective work and still finds time to cook her traditional Saturday night supper of Boston baked beans. She even concocts a scheme to trap the killer. But she'll need to act quickly, victim number two has already been found.

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
It was almost painful to listen to this book. The story is only so-so but Davinia Porter's narration was dreadful. I'm usually a fan of hers but not this time. For a story taking place on Martha's Vineyard why does everyone have a strong English accent? Even the ex-NYC cop sounds like he took a detour through London. When she does vary the accent it's almost worse. A crusty New Englander with a Scottish accent.
Stay away from this one.
I have to agree. It took me weeks to get through this book, and only if I had nothing else to listen to.
"A Great Diversion"
Riggs writes well, knows her flora and fauna; as well as Martha's Vineyard in the entirety and tells a complete diverting story. Just what I need to leave behind the pressures of my day.
"Felt like our heroine was not as smart as usual"
Felt like our heroine was not as smart as usual..is Ms Riggs beginning to lose interest ?
