Save the date: Ivy Elizabeth Beasley is ready to share her golden years and plans to wed Roy Vivian Goodman on the fifth of May. A spinster no more, the private eye is in for marriage, murder, and mishaps galore
It's the talk of Ivy Beasley's retirement community her fiance, Roy, has quite the hefty inheritance. She couldn t care less about his fortune, but it has a way of luring long-lost relatives out of the woodwork. And when, against Ivy's wishes, Roy asks his dubious nephew, furniture salesman Steven Wright, to be the best man, she cannot help but disapprove. After all, she suspects he's out for his uncle's fortune
But after the banns of Ivy and Roy's marriage are announced at the Barrington village church and an anonymous voice shouts out a protest, the wedding may be off. And with the discovery of a body in a bed in a nearby furniture shop, Ivy and her team of sleuths at Enquire Within may be closer to a dangerous reception than they realize.
