The Curious Case of the Missing Figurehead by Diane Noble

Caterer El Littlefield and Professor Max Haverhill team up in Diane Noble's new cozy mystery novel, The Curious Case of the Missing Figurehead.

A figurehead with a past worthy of the "Monuments Men" holds a secret of "National Treasure" proportions. She becomes the centerpiece of intrigue, legend, and lore--and the object of desire for  some very unsavory characters.

El and Max must put their heads and hearts together to solve the mystery and save El's friend Hyacinth, who valiantly puts herself in harms way.

The book is sub-titled "A Professor and Mrs. Littlefield Mystery" indicating that there will be more mysteries to come. I hope so. As a fan of Agatha Christie, G.K. Chesterton, and Juliana Deering, The Curious Case of the Missing Figurehead snuggles right in there with the best of them.

Please read on for more about this novel that you won't want to miss!! ;)

She’s Passionate about Solving the Case ... with the Town’s Life-Long Bachelor

El Littllefield runs The Butler Did It catering. It’s the perfect cover for her to solve “who-done-its” (nothing too dangerous, please!) in this small university town nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. While catering her most important event yet—a fancy retirement dinner for Dr. Max Haverhill, life-long bachelor and history dean—countless guests fall ill, a 200 year-old relic is stolen, and her best friend vanishes. All in the first hour.

As El and Max race to solve the mystery, they discover there’s more to their relationship than simply solving the case. Welcome to Eden’s Bridge—the perfect small town setting for big intrigue, romance, and humor.
