Emma never dreamed of being a super-sleuth. In her mind’s eye, she’s more Scooby Doo than Nancy Drew. When her nosy neighbor, Mrs. Perkins, drags her to an anniversary party to solve a mystery, Emma rolls her eyes, buys a box of chocolates and hops in the car.
What’s a party without an attack on its host—or more accurately on the host’s grandson, sparking an allergic reaction and moving the party to the hospital waiting room. Now, everyone is suspect. Emma and Mrs. Perkins, along with Great-Aunt Alice (a spirit with boundary issues who keeps stepping into Emma’s body like a new dress and playing matchmaker), dive into an investigation that almost gets Emma killed along with the man they are trying to protect.
With too many reasons to kill him and so much to be gained if he died, Emma and Mrs. Perkins must unravel the tenuous ties that point to every member of his family as potential killers.
