9781250058683: Bloodroot: A Martha's Vineyard Mystery (Martha's Vineyard Mysteries)

It's just another day at the dentist's office for Victoria Trumbull when fellow patient, wealthy Mrs. Wilmington, dies. It's an unfortunate, though seemingly not murderous incident, but the receptionist is hysterical, so one of the dental assistants offers to drive her home. But after making a quick pit stop, he finds her body floating in the harbor.

With the police shorthanded due to an upcoming presidential visit, it's up to Victoria to take on the case. As she wrestles with her ex-son-in-law, a $3 million will, and a deadly dental clinic, Mrs. Trumbull discovers that nothing in the case is quite what it seems.

Bloodroot is the latest in Cynthia Riggs' longstanding Martha's Vineyard mystery series, filled with delightful characters and charming descriptions of the beautiful island.

About the Author:

CYNTHIA RIGGS is the author of a dozen books in the Martha's Vineyard mystery series featuring 92-year-old poet, Victoria Trumbull, a guidebook called Victoria Trumbull's Martha's Vineyard, and the first book of a new series set in Washington, DC. She was born on Martha's Vineyard and is the eighth generation to live in her family homestead which she runs as a bed and breakfast catering to poets, writers, and other creative people. She lives in West Tisbury, Massachusetts.

Review:

"Riggs, who describes the beauties of her acerbic sleuth's island home as lovingly as ever, provides a...satisfying conclusion." - Kirkus on Bloodrot

There are many levels on which to enjoy Cynthia Riggs's latest mystery....There is the twisting and turning plot of a good murder mystery. And there is prose, beautifully written, by a wonderful writer. ―The Martha's Vineyard Times on Indian Pipes

This smoothly executed, fun read contrasts the beauty of Martha's Vineyard with the drama of the unsolved murders. Readers will adore Victoria, a smart and witty sleuth who's as crafty as she is charismatic. ―RT Book Reviews on Paperwhite Narcissus

Victoria Trumbull is the senior citizen we all pray to become. ―Kingston Observer on Paperwhite Narcissus

"The author’s artistry is in the unfolding of plot and subplots that wind back on themselves like the bittersweet vine that abounds here...The success of the Victoria Trumbull series, seems to me, is that Ms. Riggs tells her tales with nuance and detail." - Martha's Vineyard Times
