Lucy Stone learns that it’s not good to have all your eggs in one basket when the annual Easter egg hunt hosted by elderly socialite Vivian Van Vorst takes a murderous turn after a man dressed as the Easter Bunny drops dead.
With a harsh Maine winter finally over, Lucy Stone is excited to cover the annual Easter egg hunt for the Tinker’s Cove Pennysaver. Hosted by elderly socialite Vivian Van Vorst at her oceanfront estate, it’s a swanky event where the eggs are as likely to contain savings bonds as jelly beans. But when Lucy arrives at Pine Point, the gates are locked, and a man dressed as the Easter Bunny emerges only to drop dead moments later . . .
Lucy discovers that the victim is Vivian’s grandson, and all is not well at Pine Point. Vivian has been skipping lunch dates, and her charitable donations have abruptly stopped. Is she going senile? Or are her heirs a little too anxious to take over her estate? As Lucy gathers a basketful of suspects, she’ll have to chase the truth down a rabbit hole before a killer with a deadly case of spring fever claims another
victim . . .
