Summary

Beatrix Potter's tales have bewitched readers for a century. Now, fans of all ages cherish Susan Wittig Albert's Cottage Tales mysteries, starring Miss Potter herself… Beatrix is eager to marry her fiancé, solicitor William Heelis. But with remodeling work at Castle Cottage, their future home, going at a snail's pace, Beatrix finds frustration when the building contractor fires his best carpenter, Mr. Adcock, for stealing. At the same time, Will is investigating thefts on other construction sites-an inquiry that comes to a screeching halt when Mr. Adcock is found dead. Besides the construction debacle, there's another hurdle for Beatrix and Will to overcome: the Potters have yet to give their blessing on the marriage. And when Beatrix's brother decides to tell their parents about his own decade-long secret marriage, Miss Potter knows that any chance she had of finding her own happy ending is about to be destroyed…
