Wicked Witch Murder (Lucy Stone Mystery #16)
With planning the town's annual Halloween Party, and the weather wreaking havoc, Lucy Stone's got her hands full this fall ...
In the tiny town of Tinker's Cove, Maine, a newcomer seems to suit the Halloween season. Diana Ravenscroft has just opened Solstice, a charming little shop featuring candles, crystals, jewelry, and psychic readings. But after an unnervingly accurate reading by Diana, Lucy starts to get more than a little spooked ...
Then there's the dead body Lucy finds, way up on one of the old logging roads behind her house. The deceased is Malcolm Malebranche, a seemingly harmless magician who worked at children's birthday parties.
Ike Stoughton, a prominent local businessman, starts a campaign against Diana, blaming "the witch" for everything from the unseasonal dry spell to his wife's illness and his pumpkins' lack of plumpness. But Lucy's not so sure that Ike himself is innocent. As the town Halloween party approaches, Lucy's more concerned about baking orange cupcakes and Beastly Bug cookies. But a killer plans a lethal celebration of his own--and Lucy's the guest of honor.
Contains three Halloween recipes at the end of the novel.
