    While some in the Native Indian tribe push to bring a casino to the Indian lands on the Island, others are opposing the proposal A series of killings gets Victoria Trumball, 92 YO island resident, involved in solving the mystery In the pursuit of justice, Victoria is threatened, kidnapped and almost a victim herself Good book in the series The descriptions of Martha s Vineyard and it s people are very good

  3. Elizabeth says:

    Land on Cape Cod is valuable and when competing groups want to build a casino, along with groups who don t want a casino, land becomes evenvaluable and greed comes into play And when first an inspector who decides whether a given site can support the plumbing system needed by a casino dies, then others are found dead there s no shortage of murderer candidates.

    This is an involved story regarding a plan for a casino Three people are murdered and Victoria s life is endangeredthan once.

    Victoria Trumbull is 90 years old, a life long resident of Martha s Vineyard and an interesting character While this is basically a cozy mystery, Victoria is not like most cozy heroines First off, she is not a young woman who may get involved with the police officials on the case or some other character Secondly, she doesn t go off half cocked to investigate on her own, as so many cozy heroines do In fact, the local sheriff, a woman, has made Victoria her deputy Victoria is invaluable in h Victoria Trumbull is 90 years old, a life long resident of Martha s Vineyard and an interesting character While this is basically a cozy mystery, Victoria is not like most cozy heroines First off, she is not a young woman who may get involved with the police officials on the case or some other character Secondly, she doesn t go off half cocked to investigate on her own, as so many cozy heroines do In fact, the local sheriff, a woman, has made Victoria her deputy Victoria is invaluable in helping the sheriff navigate the history of the island and the familial relationships of the locals Plus, she s an astute judge of people and a natural detective However, she does set herself up as bait in this book in order to catch the killer This was probably not the smartest move on her part especially since it was bit close in this book I do get tired of some of the political intrigue in this series In this book, it involves the Native American s of the island and the possibility of a casino on the island for the tribe There just seems to be so many shady characters in tribe or in a previous book the town officials, that it gets a bit tiresome at times, but so far it does not detract from the books I look forward to the next book

    I have listened to all of Cythia Riggs on my mp3 player I like the narrator Davinia Porter She does a great job of providing the different voices necessary to the narration This story was interesting and I kind of guessed who did it aboout 2 3 of the way through and later on found out that I was correct But that didn t disappoint me There were alot of loose ends but they were all tied together nicely and answered at the end I enjoy stories based on Martha s Vineyard as I ve been there and I have listened to all of Cythia Riggs on my mp3 player I like the narrator Davinia Porter She does a great job of providing the different voices necessary to the narration This story was interesting and I kind of guessed who did it aboout 2 3 of the way through and later on found out that I was correct But that didn t disappoint me There were alot of loose ends but they were all tied together nicely and answered at the end I enjoy stories based on Martha s Vineyard as I ve been there and really love the place It s fun to read about places that actually exist and be able to picture it clearly in your mind

    I like all the main characters in this book, especially enjoy the fact its on Martha s Vineyard It kept me interested throughout I was finally glad to read that Victoria s granddaughter finally got a boyfriend I wish he had had a bigger role in the book though And I would enjoyinput from Elizabeth in future books The only things that bothered me was the fact that Chief Oneil wants to send Victoria to the police academy that was so far fetched it was ridiculous And also the fact a I like all the main characters in this book, especially enjoy the fact its on Martha s Vineyard It kept me interested throughout I was finally glad to read that Victoria s granddaughter finally got a boyfriend I wish he had had a bigger role in the book though And I would enjoyinput from Elizabeth in future books The only things that bothered me was the fact that Chief Oneil wants to send Victoria to the police academy that was so far fetched it was ridiculous And also the fact at 92 she was able to climb up that loft But all all it was an enjoyable read

    Martha s Vineyard series, book 6 Ghost plants Indian motorcycle pipes A plan to build a casino on the Indian reservation A dead uncle This is the last book in the series that my library has available and I m not sorry to stop listening to these I m not sure if it s the writing or the narrator, but the dialogue seems forced and awkward and I m not really interested in reading .

  9. Leslie says:

    Victoria Trumbull is extremely entertaining, even when in danger Her confidence was a little shaken in this book, but she returns to her old self after solving the mysteries Sadly I think this is the last of this series that has been recorded and while I m sure I ll read them, it won t be the same as the wonderfully appropriate voice of Davina Porter.

    The building of an Indian Casino in Martha s Vineyard causes many people to get upset and several people to even lose their lives to fuel the greed the project engenders Victoria Trumbull who is 92 years old and an assistant to the chief of police smells foul play and sets a trap to catch the person responsible for the crimes and nearly loses her own life in the process.
