Lucy goes to a newspaper conference and becomes involved in the murder of a newspaper magnate. Excitement follows! (Lots of wonderful Boston references!) ( )

As the book declares, the setting for the story made for a reflection on the seamy side of people. I can't believe I'm writing it, but this book just...just might, be better than Birthday Party Murder. It's as if the former was written pertinently for me. Each passage lasted exactly the required length, and the setting changed accordingly, coincidentally when my mind would start to tap its foot impatiently. There was not one single wasted word. I'm so glad to have found this series. Time flies with books like these. Wonderful, a simply wonderful state of affairs, not counting the next few days when I'll be working my way through the ten books left. I know I haven't done justice to such a symbiotic book, but I'm grateful, believe me. ( )

Book description
When her part-time reporting gig gives Lucy the opportunity to attend a Boston newspaper conference, she looks forward to the vacation from domestic bliss. But upon leaving Tinker's Cove, she quickly discovers that alone time can be kind of...lonely. And in between libel workshops and panel discussions, Lucy takes a guilt trip. She feels terrible that she won't be home to help her husband celebrate Father's Day.

But when Luther Read--head of a nearly bankrupt newspaper dynasty--suddenly drops dead, Lucy has other things to think about. Murder, for instance. She's not buying the theory that Luther died of an asthma attack. The man just had too many enemies. Always the intrepid snoop, Lucy vows to investigate. But she can't help wondering if her name will end up on a byline--or in an obit...
