I only read this once before, but I remember close to nothing about it. The cover also says "A Sarah Kelling Mystery", but Sarah (and Max) play almost no role in this book.

This book is Emma Kelling's book, an older widowed relative of Sarah's, who has played an active role in several earlier novels. In this book, Emma volunteers to substitute for a friend who hosts artists at a summer home off the coast of Maine. This is very much a locked room (island?) mystery; there are rumors of a pirate treasure, there is real diamond necklace, a real murder, and several people are hit on the head as one of the island's residents searches for something.

I love Emma, the way she thinks, and her practicality. Theona arrives to provide support for Emma, and her intuitiveness and input are invaluable. A great entry into this series
