ABOUT THE BOOK:
Series: Manor House #5
When Marshfield Manor hosts a charity event, Grace Wheaton, the mansion’s curator and manager, is happy to lend a helping hand—until a killer makes an unwanted donation . . .
With the town clock in desperate need of repair, local lawyer Joyce Swedburg and her ex-husband, Dr. Leland Keay, are trying to put aside their differences to organize a benefit at Marshfield manor to raise money for restoration of the beautiful timepiece. While Grace appreciates the opportunity to support such a good cause, the tension between the unhappy exes is giving her the urge to put both of the organizers in time-out.
But after Leland collapses onstage, poisoned during festivities, Grace suspects there was more going on behind the scenes. Now, she’s in a race to catch a ticked-off murderer, and, if she’s going to prevent anyone else from getting hurt, every second will count . . .
