Publisher's Summary

Antique dealer Sarah Byrne has never unspooled the truth about her past to anyone - not even friend and fellow Mainely Needlepointer Angie Curtis. But the enigmatic Aussie finally has the one thing she's searched for all her life - family. And now she and long-lost half-brother, Ted Lawrence, a wealthy old artist and gallery owner in town, are ready to reveal their secret connection....

Ted's adult children are suspicious of their newfound aunt Sarah - especially after Ted, in declining health, announces plans to leave her his museum-worthy heirloom paintings. So when Ted is poisoned to death during a lobster bake, everyone assumes she's guilty. If Sarah and Angie can't track down the real murderer in time, Sarah's bound to learn how delicate - and deadly - family dynamics can truly be....

Slightly confusing

Background histories are inconsistent from book one to book five. Such as the main female character was 29 in book one but was 26 in book 4. I know this isn’t such a big thing but in mysteries it is the small things that add up to the answer of each mystery. There are other inconsistencies throughout each book.
