9780393319132: A Pair for the Queen (Tish McWhinny Mysteries)

The enterprising Vermont sleuth Tish McWhinny — whom Booklist calls "an absolutely first-rate companion" — returns in her fifth Vermont mystery, on the trail of a murderer at a local dog show.

Tish McWhinny reluctantly gets involved in restoring an old painting for a dog show promotion — harmless enough, but then the painting is stolen and someone is murdered. Is the crime connected to the rather shady new couple now running the local store? What about the retired Royal Navy man, now much interested in art, who unexpectedly turns up? Or niece Sophie's secretive new boyfriend? It takes all Tish's ingenuity, as well as the help of her courtly friend Hilary Oats and free-spirit Sophie, to find out what's going on and catch a cold criminal. "Lofton, Vermont, is a place I'd like to live — right next door to Tish McWhinny, if possible. Barbara Comfort's Vermont mysteries have the wonderful quality of being both mysterious and friendly. I love that saucy, sassy, septuagenarian Tish McWhinny." — Barbara D'Amato

About the Author:

B. Comfort is a portrait and landscape painter and the author of four earlier Vermont village mysteries featuring Tish McWhinny. She lives in New York City and Landgrove, Vermont.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Even before she turned 77, Tish McWhinny was not the kind of girl who'd forge an Old Master. So when her friend Hilary Oats asks her to paint a dog picture in, let's say, an older style that his scapegrace godson Bruce Hemphill can use to kick off his canine art concession at an upcoming dog show, Tish politely bridlesand then has the clever idea of creatively ``restoring'' an old painting she's dug up. But when Bruce cleans up Tish's masterwork for exhibition, the name ``Landseer'' magically appears in the corner, leading to a pair of thorny ethical dilemmas: How seriously have Tish's ministrations damaged what might be a pricey commodity, and what should she tell Bruce about her part in his windfall? Fortunately, Bruce cuts the Gordian knot by getting himself murdered and the painting stolen (by laughably hearty new storekeeper Jeremy Blount or his anorexic child bride Lily? by Bruce's ex Jean or her new husband, haw-haw Texan Jack Connors? by Bruce's coolly divorced daughter Kim or her friend George Rouse, who has a lot of interesting adventures for a student in Harvard Business School? by Tish's ex-lover Ian Bixler, who's emerged from fifty years of obscurity in the Royal Navy to come sniffing around Tish again?). It'll take all Tish's Vermont ingenuity, plus several rounds of extra-strength Ben-Gay, to ferret out the truth. Tish's fifth (Elusive Quarry, 1995, etc.) provides loads of the kind of civilized excitement she captures in her ejaculation: ``Oh, my Lord! I had nearly forgotten that it was the day Mabel Boland brought her pumpkin scones to the store.'' -- Copyright ©1998, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
