The Nantucket Diet Murders Author:Virginia Rich Having summered on the island of Nantucket for years Mrs. Potter returns for a reunion with her old friends ("Les Girls," as they call themselves). Mrs. Potter cannot help noticing right away,however, that her friends have become thin-perhaps dangerously thin- thanks to Count Tony Ferencz. Gone are the days of martinis at the luncheon club; go... more »ne are the trips to buy Portugese bread fresh from the bakery- Les Girls' new "master" would never allow such things.
But what begins as a health kick takes a dangerous turn when a couple of "accidental" deaths take place within the small island community. With growing panic Mrs. Potter wonders, is there a connection between these deaths and the spellbinding diet guru? Or is there a more sinister evil lurking on the lovely island of Nantucket?
Thanks to her inimitable blend of forthrightness, wisdom and charm Mrs. Potter discovers the surprising culprit.
But as always, the trail of detection offers other treats as well: namely, a first rate and affectionate portrayal of life in a historic New England town; absolutely delicious conversations about old=fashioned, honest American food; and last but not least a new collection of endpaper recipes for such dishes as Gussie's Cranberry Cheese Nut Bread, Beth's Buttermilk Doughnuts and Bo Heideckers' Tenesee Mountain Stickies.« less
