In between scouring estate sales for her new interior design business, Cottages by the Sea, Meg Barrett visits the swanky East Hampton home of her old college roommate, Jillian Spenser. But instead of seeing how the other half lives, she learns how the other half dies. Jillian's mother, known as the Queen Mother of the Hamptons, has been murdered. Someone has staged a coup.
When she helps a friend inventory the Spensers' estate for the insurance company, Meg finds herself right in the thick of things. Cataloging valuable antiques and art loses its charm when Meg discovers that the Spenser family has been hiding dangerous secrets that may have furnished a murderer with a motive. As Meg gets closer to the truth, the killer will do anything to paint her out of the picture.
"The descriptions of furniture and other antiques, as well as juicy tidbits on the Hamptons, make for entertaining reading for those who enjoy both antiques and lifestyles of the rich and famous." (Booklist)

Fabulous "Beach Read" for summer
This fun, well-written, easy to follow romantic mystery is set in East Hampton and surrounding areas...a place I visit often. I appreciated the authors information regarding some of the sites I frequently.
