Amateur sleuth Priscilla Grant has her hands full when eccentric Virginia Lawrence disappears after cancelling her lecture at the local historical museum. Certain valuable artifacts are also missing. If that were not enough, she and cousin Trudy discover that items have gone missing from a local cemetery. Trudy helps search for Virginia and her Pink Caddy, but she is busy with a local production of a new play.
This was an engaging story of a local mystery on Martha’s Vineyard. Woven into it was a real, historical, quirky character of Nancy Luce, the Chicken Lady and lore surrounding her. Add in some nagging doubts about Priscilla and her beau Gerald as well as Trudy and husband Don and you have a tale that fits anywhere.
I enjoyed the local flavor and the dogs who played an integral part. Makes me want to check out more of this mystery series from Guideposts.
