Rich now moves her rich, widowed heroine, Eugenia Potter, from Maine (The Baked Bean Supper Murders) to mid-winter Nantucket--complete with recipes, girl talk, and some murders to unravel. Chief sources of gossip? Well, Potter's old friend Gussie Van Vleeck is visiting the island--and considering a fourth marriage to Tony, Count Ferencz, a sort of nutritionist who is leading a group of women (mostly widowed) to new heights of slimness and prettiness. Furthermore, Tony--currently installed in Peter Benson's Scrimshaw Inn, hoping to get local (female) backing for an exclusive island spa--turns out to be the ex-husband of chic realtor Dee. . . who can't convince the island ladies what a stinker Tony really is. Then, however, there are two sudden deaths in one day: aging Oscar de Bevereaux, lawyer to the island's well-heeled folk, expires; so does his secretary Edie Rosborough. And amateur-sleuth Potter starts digging up old scandals and setting new ones in motion--bringing on a nasty, unsurprising denouement. Like the previous Eugenia Potters: not for readers interested in plot or pace--but possible entertainment for those who dote on chatty details of architecture, terrain, clothes, parties, and diets.
