Fun Fact #3 About Mrs. Spinney's Secret

I'm participating in the Winter Games Reader Challenge, featuring my new mystery romance Mrs. Spinney's Secret. Part of the book takes place in Castine, Maine.



Castine—where the Penobscot Expedition—met its fate, is a town on the Blue Hill peninsula in Maine. It is the oldest continuously occupied town in New England. Founded in 1613 as a trading post, the Baron de St-Castin developed it in 1667.



It is a beautiful, classic Maine village with Greek Revival and Federal houses. It is home to the Maine Maritime Academy. The town has a checkered history. Controlled at various times by Abenaki Indian tribes, French, Dutch, English, and Americans, it was a bone of contention during the American Revolution, when the British sought to annex it as a haven for Tories and a bulwark against marauding privateers.

Here's a fun fact about Mrs. Spinney's Secret you want like:


In Mrs. Spinney’s Secret, a Hollywood studio is making a movie based on the Penobscot Expedition of 1779, the worst defeat in American naval history. In 1779, at the height of the American Revolution, a contingent of British forces were dispatched to Castine. Their mission was to take possession of the peninsula and build a fort to protect loyalists and to prevent marauding by privateers along the coast. At the time, Maine was still part of Massachusetts, and the boys in Boston took offense at the blatant theft of their territory. So they organized a flotilla to sail up the coast and remove said Brits.

Their leaders—including the revered Paul Revere—were dumb as tree stumps and couldn’t decide how to attack the city—a city that sticks out like a sore thumb on the Blue Hill peninsula. The Redcoats were prepared to surrender, but the Americans dithered offshore for almost three weeks, which was just enough time for English reinforcements to arrive and surround the hapless armada.

It’s instant attraction until a series of deadly incidents threatens their budding romance. Are the attacks directed at the movie crew or the townspeople?
