Description:

Like a basket of warm cinnamon buns, an unsolved crime is something that Hamptons innkeeper and sleuth Antonia Bingham just can't resist. Despite a busy high-season schedule and an inn booked to capacity, Antonia has agreed to investigate a cold case in her beloved adopted hometown, East Hampton, NY: the killing of Susie Whitaker, whose brutal 1990 slaying on a tennis court in the poshest part of town was never solved. And the person who has hired Antonia? Prime suspect Pauline Framingham, a manipulative pharmaceutical heiress from a powerful family. As Antonia attempts to unravel the mysteries of the past she unearths even darker secrets and ultimately wonders if it would have been best to let sleeping dogs lie. To make matters worse, past acquaintances and love interests reappear in the Hamptons, disrupting Antonia's world and causing her to scurry to the fridge for comfort. Death on West End Road is the third book in the Hamptons Murder Mystery Series. Along with a colorful cast of supporting characters, the beating heart of the book is Antonia Bingham, restaurateur, gourmand, and nosy carb-lover.

My Thoughts:

This book starts with Antonia meeting with Pauline Framingham who is determined to set her friends mother at ease about her daughter's murder.  Antonia is hesitant to investigate but finds herself curious about what happened in 1990 and who really murdered Susie Whitaker?  Was it really Pauline or someone else?

This book was intriquing going back intime to investigate the murder.  Talking to people who were around back then and were part of Susie's world.  Definitely a great mystery with those who like cold case type books.  I love Antonia and how she is when she's sluething and like Jessica Fletcher finds that nagging feeling something isn't right.  Especially when it comes to Pauline she can't decide if Pauline didn't really do it in the beginning.  The rich definitely lead a different lifestyle then everyone else.  So it was intriguing to see Antonia through to the end of the book. I look forward to reading the next book when it comes out!
