May 2011 Vineyard Mystery 

Cynthia Riggs charms readers with her novel, Touch-Me-Not: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery ($24.99). An eerie telephone stalker preys on the members of a knitters group as they work on a quilt for a competition. The group turns to feisty 92-year-old poet/sleuth Victoria Trumbull for help, and she must solve the case while dealing with family issues after her daughter and granddaughter arrive on the scene. Riggs, a 13th-generation islander from West Tisbury, blends suspense with the beauty of the Vineyard in this release from Minotaur Books. For more information, visit
