Bright and beautiful Jenny Cain, director of the Port Frederick Civic Foundation, was dying of curiosity. A hapless visitor had slipped in the mud at the town's historic cemetery—and fallen right into an empty grave!

When Jenny discovered that all the graves were vacant, it was the beginning of murder. Someone had killed an employee of the Harbor Lights Funeral Home, and played a macabre practical joke with the body. Suddenly, everyone in town is suspect, from the victim’s grieving widower to the spike-haired gravedigger to the unctuous director of the Harbor Lights. Now Jenny has to dig up some answers, and fast—before the killer leaves her silent as a tomb!

This novel is a nice combination between hard core female protagonist mystery and formula plot mystery. Well written with interesting plot twiests. It is perfect for vacation. Not challenging but not boring either.

3.5 stars. Not as enjoyable as the previous books, partly because Geof had such a small part. Geof was out of town leaving Ailey to run the investigation so there was none of the usual interplay between Jenny & he. Ailey wasn't very impressed with Jenny's help, & who could blame him, really. Instead, Jenny hooks up with a sleazy journalist, Lewis Riss, who's amusing but not really a great idea on Jenny's part. The storyline was quite good but it didn't seem to flow as well. The case of the empty graves was incidental to the murders, the one having nothing to do with the other.

I enjoy Nancy Pickards stories, her ideas and writing style. BUT normally when I find an author that I enjoy, I will read all of their books and keep looking for new ones to come out. However, there are so many errors in these books that it's difficult to get through. Ex: in one it says "he looked like he hadn't slept all night, he had dark circles under his arms". If it were just once or twice it would be ok, but this is consistent throughout all three Jenny Cain books that I have read. They look like they were written by a child and nobody bothered to read and edit them before they went to press. Too bad that this is the case, I would have enjoyed them. I can't recommend the series, or the author.
