Preorder the next book in the fantastic Stamford Mysteries series! Perfect for fans of M.C. Beaton and Richard Osman!
Who knew a harmless town fair could be so polarising – or so deadly?
When auctioneer Felicia Grant’s best friend, Stamford Mayor Cassandra Lane, talked her into helping with the town’s annual Georgian Fair, she expected the worst she’d have to endure was the corset. But when the fair’s headline speaker turns up dead in the hook-a-duck pool, and more murders follow in quick succession, she finds herself investigating a serial killer for the second time in less than a year – and this time the stakes are even higher?
