As Lucy Locket worked at one of the events she'd organized, she runs into someone wearing a necklace that looks familiar. It looks exactly like the one that was stolen from her grandparents when she was very young. A locket. One that was handed down on her grandfather's side for hundreds of years.
Before she died, her grandmother told her the find it. That it was her destiny. She didn't understand what Grandma Maeve meant by that until she was standing face-to-face with that necklace. Then, it made perfect sense. There was a problem, however. It was hanging around someone else's neck.A pickle if ever there was one.The solution?Steal it back.
Welcome to Nursery Crimes, where tales are twisted and happily ever afters are not always guaranteed....
Inspired by the nursery rhyme:
Lucy Locket lost her pocket,
Kitty Fisher found it;
Not a penny was there in it,
Only ribbon round it.
This series is premised on such a great concept, twisted nursery rhymes! Each story takes a nursery rhyme and turns it on its side and into a romantic suspense story. I loved Lucy Locket. The characters were diverse, quirky, and interesting… as all of Kayt Miller’s characters are! And the story… so many twists and turns. I loved the suspense elements, engrossing and page turning. And, of course, the romance was fantastic.
My only complaint? I wanted more, more, more! Not because the story wasn’t complete, it was. But just because I’m obsessed with all things Kayt Miller!
