Description:

Springtime in the Hamptons comes late, but it’s worth it! Brisk walks on the bright chilly beach, cinnamon buns at tea time, blooming forsythia and….murder? 

Innkeeper Antonia Bingham has hit her stride as the proprietor of East Hampton’s Windmill Inn. After solving a series of murders, Antonia has taken on more work as an estate manager, giving her entree her into some of the area’s most glamorous homes. Once inside, Antonia checks the heat, looks for leaks or damage, and finds the occasional dead body. As the police can’t be trusted, it’s up to Antonia—a modern day Miss Marple, with an overly enthusiastic adoration of carbs and a kamikaze love-life—to put her skills of deduction to use. Nestle in with a steaming mug of your favorite tea and get ready to peek behind the gates of the mansions of the Hamptons, as Antonia Bingham solves another shocking and devastating murder. 

In the second book of the “Hamptons Murder Mystery” series, bestselling author Carrie Doyle Karasyov (The Right Address; Wolves in Chic Clothing) has brought to life a lovable character with whom readers of all ages will be dying to spend time.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Antonia Bingham whose a innkeeper in the Hamptons she spends her days checking on houses of the rich and famous and running her inn.  When she hears that someone is still staying in one of her houses she goes to let him know he's got to check out when she finds him he's really checked out of life.  Who killed Warner the guy whose been going around town doing a documentary and causing lots of trouble?  Was it one of the people he was interviewing or someone else?

I enjoyed the look into the Hamptons and how they are and how the locals deal with them.  I also enjoyed learning more about Antonia and how she wound up as an innkeeper in the Hamptons!  This book was great and really kept me on the edge of my seat.  Definitely reminds me of those reality shows about the rich and how they live.  Especially adding murder to the mix really kept me entertained.  Can't wait to read the next book in this series!
