Nobody in the little town of Finch was really surprised when Prunella "Pruneface" Hooper came to a nasty end--but murder? There hadn't been a murder in Finch since 1872, when one shepherd bashed another with the hook of his crook. Despite her hectic home schedule with her three-year-old twins, Lori agrees to investigate. But narrowing the list of suspects is a major challenge: the newly arrived Pruneface had quickly become privy to everyone's secrets and used her secret knowledge to plant rumors, nurture backbiting, resurrect feuds, and season it all with downright lies. Almost everyone had a reason to want her dead. Fortunately, Aunt Dimity's supernatural skills, and her insight into uncovering the true goodness of human nature, make the experience of unraveling the mystery.

7th book in the series
Another enjoyable read in the aunt Dimity series by Nancy Atherton.
It's funny, how Lori does manage to get herself into troublesome situations. That husband Bill of hers is quite the guy. good guy.
