A Fete Worse Than DeathSisters Meg and Sarah Quilliam make sure guests feel right at home when they visit the Inn at Hemlock Falls. Located in upstate New York, Hemlock Falls is a small town renowned for its scenic beauty—and scenes of crime . . .

It is almost time for the Finger Lakes Autumn Fete and chairwoman Adela Henry has walked off the job. The last thing Quill needs is to be named to another committee and there is no way in the world she is chairing the fete. She is thrilled when the mayor hires professional organizer Linda Connelly and her staff to take over Adela’s duties.

Apparently everyone wasn’t thrilled with the choice because Linda’s body turns up in the trunk of a used car at Peterson’s Automotive. Soon Quill and Meg find themselves tracking down yet another killer.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

After a bit of a slip with Dread on Arrival the series is back on track with a great mystery, wonderful characters and the bits of humor that makes this one of my favorite series.

Quill gets a few assists solving the puzzler and I loved these new characters with their many secrets. Great unexpected twists!! Plus all our favorite Hemlockians are back, even though Myles is again away on assignment.

This is a long running series and I continue to look forward to each and every trip to Hemlock Falls. I hope to return again soon!! a perfect escape 5 STARFISH

  1. I haven’t started yet either, and with all the other books you have added to my toppling t-b-r list I don’t know if I will. Love your reviews. Thanks, Dee

  2. I am so glad you reviewed this one. I was going to skip it because I didn’t care for Dread on Arrival and was afraid the series was falling apart.
