Antonia is Jessica Fletcher without the wit, charm or intelligence. She comes across as a dumpy, frazzled workaholic – more trailer-park, soap-opera-addicted housefrau than determined, successful, empowered businesswoman.
This is the third book in the Hamptons Murder Mystery series, and apparently they are best read in order. While sufficient to stand alone, this story is laden with references to past plots and characters and drops in beachball-sized clues to future ones. While a great promotional technique, it leaves the reader wishing for a more self-contained story.
Antonia Bingham is on the mend from a serial killer's attack in A Death on Lily Pond Lane, and eager to just enjoy the summer season in East Hampton at her Windmill Inn and Restaurant. She wants to enjoy the glorious East Hampton weather and spend some time thinking about her love life, or lack of a love life. Unfortunately, that is not to be. Because she is getting a bit of a reputation for crime solving, one of East Hampton's wealthiest residents, Pauline Framingham requests her services in solving a cold case from the 1990's where her friend, Susie Whitaker, was murdered on the Framingham's tennis court, and Pauline was the main suspect! Antonia wants to refuse, but Pauline makes her an offer she cannot refuse. With the help of her dear friend, Joseph Fowler, and the often unwanted help of journalist Larry Lipper (yes, Larry Lipper!), Antonia finds herself visiting the East Hampton of the summer of 1990 in order to try to solve the crime.
This mystery has plenty of suspects, and so many twists and turns and evasions, that Antonia has to use all of her resources to try to solve it. The ending came as a complete surprise to me! All of the Hamptons Murder Mysteries are wonderful, and I think that Murder on West End Road is my favorite so far. Don't miss out on this great series which puts your right in the lovely town of East Hampton, both past and present.
I received an ARC of this book, but all opinions and thoughts are my own.
