Description

Another murder in the Hamptons, from a New York Times bestselling author Carrie Doyle.

Springtime in the Hamptons comes late, but it’s worth it! Brisk walks on the bright chilly beach, cinnamon buns at tea time, blooming forsythia and...murder?

East Hampton innkeeper and chef Antonia Bingham has settled in to town and taken on extra work as an estate manager, giving her entree her into some of the area’s most glamorous homes. Once inside, Antonia checks the heat, looks for leaks or damage, and finds the occasional dead body. Since the police can’t be trusted, it’s up to Antonia—a modern day Miss Marple, with an overly enthusiastic adoration of carbs and a kamikaze love-life—to put her skills of deduction to use.

Agatha Christie and Louise Penny fans should nestle in with a steaming mug of their favorite tea and get ready to peek behind the gates of the mansions of the Hamptons, as Antonia Bingham solves another shocking and devastating murder in Death on Lily Pond Lane, the second book in New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Carrie Doyle’s Hamptons Murder Mystery series.
 
The Hamptons are known for beautiful beaches, luxurious living, millionaire mansions, and now...murder

Praise For Death on Lily Pond Lane (Hamptons Murder Mysteries)

“Doyle (The Infidelity Pact, 2008, etc.) is a self-described “foodie” and an avid cheerleader for the quaint village of East Hampton, New York . . . an appealing, three-dimensional heroine and some clever plot twists make this an enjoyable, quick read.”  —Kirkus Reviews


“This series is enjoyable and delightful. I wasn’t the least bit surprised that the latest Hamptons Murder Mystery was as amazing as the last two books. Carrie Doyle has the ability to paint such a setting and character that mystery lovers alike will delight in this read."—Bibliophile Reviews


“A mystery with exciting twists and more than one possible suspect...and fun, smart characters." —Cozy Mystery Review Crew


“A tightly written and well thought out murder mystery."—KRL News & Reviews


“There’s something fun about discovering a series that you love and just binging your way through it. That is exactly what I did with Carrie Doyle's Hamptons Murder Mystery series. The books are fun reading with a great cast of characters...[and the] storylines weave in great background on the history of the Hamptons, as well as some mouth-watering food descriptions. Carrie worked for Ina Garten when she owned and ran The Barefoot Contessa in the Hamptons, so she writes about food with great authority. She also has been a summer and weekend resident of East Hampton for decades, so she knows the lay of the land. Armchair vacation travel with a mystery; I love it." —Bookreporter.com


“Carrie Doyle has milled East Hampton into grist for her popular books." —East Hampton Star
