Silver Anniversary Murder
by Meier, Leslie

Beth, who was in the process of finalizing her fourth divorce, had a reputation for living on the edge-but no one can believe she would jump off a penthouse terrace in New York City. The more Lucy learns about Beth's former husbands, the more she suspects one of them committed murder. Summoning her friend'simpulsive spirit, Lucy vows to scour New York from the Bronx to the Brooklyn Bridge in search of the killer. With each ex dodgier than the last, it's not long before Lucy's investigation leads her to a desperate criminal who will do anything to get away-even if it means silencing another victim..."-

Small-town Maine journalist Lucy Stone travels to New York City to attend the funeral of her friend Beth, who, police claim, committed suicide. Lucy doesn't buy it, so she later returns to the city to investigate, telling her husband she needs a break. Lucy zeroes in on Beth's three, almost four, ex-husbands as suspects: the charismatic cult leader and father of her son, the tortured artist, the creepy chiropractor, and her current husband, billionaire Jeremy Blake, who seemingly has the most to gain from Beth's death. She uncovers their secrets and ultimately identifies Beth's killer, but her investigation leads to a terrifying ordeal. Meanwhile, in Tinker's Cove, the henpecked Warren Bickford and his disagreeable wife, Sylvia, have involved the entire town in their silver anniversary celebration, and Lucy must write a story about it for the local paper. The frenzied pace of the city, effectively contrasted with the more tranquil atmosphere of a small town; the reappearance of familiar characters; and numerous plot twists all contribute to the appeal of this satisfying entry in a long-running series.
