Mushrooms. The thirteenth novel by Cynthia Riggs set on Martha’s Vineyard is titled, Trumpet of Death. Fans of the series will enjoy the latest sleuthing by 92-year-old protagonist Victoria Turnbull, and the loads of suspects in the murders on the island. The plant featured in this installment and the title is a mushroom and there is some confusion among characters as to whether it’s a delicacy or a poison. It’s the mushrooming suspects that move the plot along, and Victoria’s clear thinking as a beacon for the cluelessness surrounding her. This is light vacation reading that’s quick to read and easy to forget.
