Spring has sprung in Tinker's Cove, and Lucy Stone has a mile-long to-do list, from painting eggs with her grandson to preparing the perfect Easter feast. She hardly has time to search for a killer with a deadly case of spring fever. Lucy has always loved covering the annual Easter egg hunt for the Pennysaver. Hosted by elderly socialite Vivian Van Vorst at Pine Point, her luxurious oceanfront estate, it's a swanky event where the grown-ups sip cocktails while their children search for eggs that are as likely to contain savings bonds as they are jelly beans. But when Lucy arrives with her three-year-old grandson, VV's normally welcoming gates are locked, and a man dressed as the Easter Bunny emerges only to drop dead moments later. Lucy discovers that the victim is Van Vorst Duff, VV's grandson, and soon learns that not all is as it seems at idyllic Pine Point. As Lucy gathers a basketful of suspects, she's convinced that someone's been hunting for a lot more than eggs.
