Short Synopsis
When Marshfield Manor hosts a charity event, Grace Wheaton, the mansion’s curator and manager, is happy to lend a helping hand—until a killer makes an unwanted donation . . .

Full Synopsis
With the town clock in desperate need of repair, local lawyer Joyce Swedburg and her ex-husband, Dr. Leland Keay, are trying to put their differences aside to organize a benefit at Marshfield Manor to raise money to restore the beautiful timepiece. While Grace Wheaton, the mansion's curator and manager, appreciates the opportunity to support such a good cause, the tension between the unhappy exes is giving her the urge to put both of the organizers in time out.

But after Leland collapses on stage during the festivities, poisoned, Grace suspects there was more going on behind the scenes. Now, she’s in a race to catch a ticked off murderer, and, if she’s going to prevent anyone else from getting hurt, every second will count . . .

"Engaging . . . Cozy fans will be well satisfied." ---Publishers Weekly

"Managing historic Marshfield Manor might be Grace Wheaton's official job but sleuthing comes naturally, particularly when a key benefactor is poisoned at a big fund-raising event." ---Library Journal

"This cleverly constructed mystery will appeal to fans of Kathleen Ernst’s work, which also makes effective use of local history." ---Booklist
