2/23/1993 Murder in Mellingham
February 23, 1993. This date saw the release of Murder in Mellingham, the first novel in Susan Oleksiw's series about a small town on the New England coast. Publishers' Weekly said "Oleksiw's mystery starts slowly, and her upper-class suspects are
somewhat stodgy, but the ordinary citizens of Mellingham--the cops, the
restaurant owners and lifeguards--are acutely, affectionately rendered."
