First words
Asey Mayo pretended not to hear her,but neither the distant chugging of the evening freight nor the rattle of hailstones against the truck's throbbing hood nor even his own disinclination to listen could drown out the shrill persistent stream of orders that issued from his Cousin Jennie.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0881500798, Paperback)

The familiar Cape Cod setting works its spell, and the cranky, colorful New England characters work their way through a deftly amusing and baffling story of plot and counterplot.

She had come every summer for twenty-nine years to stay at what used to be Mrs. Mercer's boarding house but was now Ye Olde Whale Inn. She knew all about Quisset, and Quisset thought it knew all about her. So when Miss Olive Beadle arrived for her thirtieth season, there was nothing to hint at disaster.

The murder at Ye Olde Whale Inn hung on a curious series of chance events: if Ann Joyce and Mrs. Hingham hadn't both been stage-struck; if departing ministers hadn't passed out group photos to the congregation; if Cousin Jenny hadn't found the stuffed tomato and if a sprained ankle and a load of overdue clams hadn't put Asey Mayo on the scene, matters would have been very different.
