Publisher's Summary

English food is all well and good in its place, but for expatriate amateur sleuth Dorothy Martin, there's nothing like a good Thanksgiving turkey with all the trimmings to make November seem complete. In the midst of the preparations, though, when Dorothy gets a call to help out for one day at the local school because Amanda Doyle just hasn't shown up, she does agree to help; she was, after all, a schoolteacher. Things turn out very badly on Thanksgiving Day. As she awaits the arrival of her guests, Dorothy gets another call: could she look after Mrs. Doyle's 9-year-old daughter, Miriam? The child's father has been murdered, and the murmurings over the wishbone are not part of any celebration Dorothy would have planned.


What the Critics Say

"Dorothy's outsider status gives her a fresh perspective on village eccentricities....Dorothy's not exactly bland herself, given her penchant for detecting, her colorful millinery, and her phone-answering cat." (Detroit Free Press)

Grew up in Indiana & love Mysteries set in England

So I always enjoy Jeanne Dams' books. I had read the book and enjoyed the audio book even more. 4 stars because I thought the story at times was a little preachy. Kate Reading is a favorite narrator.
