From the Cover:
Lucy Stone is in the doghouse - with her next door neighbor, Mrs. Prudence Pratt. It seems that Kudo, the Stones' misbehaving mutt, has developed a taste for Mrs. Pratt's blue-ribbon winning chickens . . . a group of naturists descends on Mrs. Pratt's property, giving her something else to complain about. Then the July Fourth fireworks are canceled to protect a patch of rare purple-spotted lichen.
Lucy Stone has her hands full with working at the local newspaper, dealing with a crabby neighbor, unruly kids and a misbehaved dog. I like the dynamics of Tinker's Cove with it's coastal small town atmosphere, but for a murder mystery there was a lot of leading up to the murder and only the last half of the book was about the solving the crime.
Have a safe and happy July 4th everyone
