The fact that Eleanor Royden was putting on lipstick at 4:45 was not unusual; the fact that it was 4:45 in the morning, however, made it an unprecedented departure from her usual routine.Because I enjoyed reading several of her books, I checked out three by Sharyn McCrumb from my library. That was three years ago, and I didn't get any of those books read. Now I live in St. Louis, and I found this mystery book at one of my new libraries. It was on the sale shelf, which means I own the book and haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I did, however, finish the other book I bought that day. Now I need to find out why Eleanor Royden was putting on lipstick at 4:45 a.m. At this point, I don't even know who she is.
