Description

Can Sarah Booth Delaney read between the lines and uncover the truth about this real-life murder mystery?

Private investigator Sarah Booth Delaney and her friends are celebrating New Year's Eve at the party of the year, a smashing Winter Garden party at the Prince Albert Hotel. It's a dazzling success...until Frangelica "Sister" McFee walks through the door. Sarah Booth knew Sister in college, before Sister became a bestselling author and moved to New York, and fame and fortune don't seem to have tempered her arrogance and cruelty.

Sister's latest book is a memoir about the death of her mother and brother many years ago. Now a film about the book is in the works, and a film crew has descended upon Zinnia, Mississippi, to tell the complete tale. When the film crew realizes there may be more to the story behind the scenes--and between the covers of Sister's book--they hire Sarah Booth to find out what really happened all those years ago. But soon Sarah Booth realizes that someone is desperate to keep a long-buried secret...and will do whatever it takes to make sure no skeletons come out of the closet.

"Delightfully fun."--New York Post

"A crazy cozy series] with a little something for everyone...plenty of Evanovich zaniness, and a cast of eccentrics."--Booklist
