Mrs. Malory and the Lilies That Fester
In a small town life Taviscombe, England, everyone knows everything about everyone—thanks to the dedicated efforts of local gossips and busybodies. So when the extremely unsavory Gordon Masefield is murdered, world of mouth spreads like fire…and brings out the worst in people.
Locals and the law are pointing the finger at Sheila Malory’s future daughter-in-law. Now Mrs. Malory must use her wits and her contacts to untangle the truth and discover who really killed Gordon—before rumor becomes motive, and speculation becomes deadly.
