Synopsis

Crime really stings in Killer WASPs.


Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, is a haven for East Coast WASPs, where tennis tournaments and cocktails at the club are revered traditions. Little happens in the sleepy suburb, and that is the way the Lilly Pulitzer–clad residents prefer it. So when antiques store owner Kristin Clark and her portly basset hound stumble upon the area's newest real estate developer lying unconscious beneath the hydrangea bushes lining the driveway of one of Bryn Mawr'smost distinguished estates, the entire town is abuzz with gossip and intrigue.

When the attacker strikes again just days later, Kristin and her three best friends—Holly, a glamorous chicken nugget heiress with a penchant for high fashion; Joe, a decorator who's determined to land his own HGT V show; and Bootsie, a preppy but nosy newspaper reporter—join forces to solve the crime. While their investigation takes them to cocktail parties, flea markets, and the country club, they must unravel the mystery before the assailant claims another victim.

Review:




4 out of 5 stars ARC for Review

Small town Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania is the home to the upper crust East Coast WASPs.  A haven for the country club lifestyles where nothing exciting happens  But things quickly change until a dead body is found.

Kristin Clark is pretty much in debt owning an antique shop that her grandparents left her as she barely can pay the shop rent most of the time. She manages to find the body with her dog after midnight while taking her dog on a walk which lands her on another land owner property.  The body turns out to be of a land developer who was being sued for faulty workmanship.  This has the town full of gossip as people wonder who did it.

Few days later there is another attack but no one dies this time.  Kristen and her wealthy friends Holly a rich socialite chicken nugget heiress, Joe an interior designer and Bootsie a snoopy newspaper reporter investigate the situation before another victim occurs.

The rich people of Bryn Mawr have their own secrets from Mafia connections to change of identity. There is even a not too secret relationship that is reveal.  But who is willing to keep their secret hidden and at what cost?

An amusing mystery set among the elite of the country club where we see a glimpse of their lifestyle.
