Overview

Sisters Meg and Sarah Quilliam make sure guests feel right at home when they visit the Inn at Hemlock Falls. Located in upstate New York, Hemlock Falls is a small town renowned for its scenic beauty—and scenes of crime . . .
 
Disaster strikes a mere week before the Hemlock Falls Ladies’ Auxiliary hosts the annual Spring Fete when the festival’s chairwoman—the redoubtable Adela Henry—gives up her job in a huff. Who’s going to judge the justly renowned Jell-O architecture contest? Or stop the members of the Craft Guild from sabotaging their rivals, the Crafty Ladies? More to the point, who’s got the tact, diplomacy, and iron will necessary to organize the booths and settle quarrels over the programming?
 
Hemlock’s mayor hopes to assure the fete’s success when he recruits professional organizer Linda Connally and her staff to take over Adela’s duties. But when Connally’s body turns up in the trunk of a used car at Peterson’s Automotive, Meg and Sarah are back in the detecting business . . .

    Another delightful visit to Hemlock Falls

    Always a fun series and well-written with Bishop's gift for capturing small-town life and great characters. Recipes look particularly good in this entry, too!

    Sisters Meg and Sarah Quilliam make sure guests feel right at ho

    Sisters Meg and Sarah Quilliam make sure guests feel right at home when they visit the Inn at Hemlock Falls. Located in upstate New York, Hemlock Falls is a small town renowned for its scenic beauty—and scenes of crime . . .
    It is almost time for the Finger Lakes Autumn Fete and chairwoman Adela Henry has walked off the job. The last thing Quill needs is to be named to another committee and there is no way in the world she is chairing the fete. She is thrilled when the mayor hires professional organizer Linda Connelly and her staff to take over Adela’s duties.




    Apparently everyone wasn’t thrilled with the choice because Linda’s body turns up in the trunk of a used car at Peterson’s Automotive. Soon Quill and Meg find themselves tracking down yet another killer.








    After a bit of a slip with Dread on Arrival the series is back on track with a great mystery, wonderful characters and the bits of humor that makes this one of my favorite series.




    Quill gets a few assists solving the puzzler and I loved these new characters with their many secrets. Great unexpected twists!! Plus all our favorite Hemlockians are back, even though Myles is again away on assignment.




    This is a long running series and I continue to look forward to each and every trip to Hemlock Falls. I hope to return again soon!!
