THE MERRY WIDOW MURDERS
"Delightful" says Maureen Jennings,
author of the Murdoch Mysteries and the Paradise Cafe Mysteries
The Merry Widow Murders by Melodie Campbell
Lucy Revelstoke, unconventional widow of a
young British lord and daughter of a Canadian mobster, is crossing the Atlantic on a state-of-the-art ocean liner in 1928. Rubbing elbows with
the era’s elite and reconnecting with her husband’s
aristocratic friend Tony should make for a swell trip. But a dead body dumped in Lucy’s
stateroom the first night of the voyage threatens to capsize the new life she’s
built for herself.
Who is this dead man? And how did he get into her room?
Together with her pickpocket- turned-maid and Tony, Lucy rushes to investigate, just steps ahead of the authorities who will certainly dig too deeply into her dodgy Canadian past.
