From the Author
This is the wrap-up book for Cassie's story, started in "Lilacs" and continued in "Foxgloves." I wanted to try to portray, realistically, what kind of questions a woman at mid-life might face when considering a new romance. And I wanted to explore the whole question of how wealth can change a person's life.

Meet the much-married, by-all-intents-and-purposes dysfunctional and totally fascinating Whittington family. Did I mention they're also rich as Croesus? Cassie, the only non-Whittington-born member of the clan used to be married to Charlie, but now she's in love with (or at least sleeping with) Sam Barlow. There's something fishy between Sam's ex-wife Sheila and Charlie's brother John. When both of them end up murdered, almost everyone's a suspect.
But life goes on, and so does sister Livvie's wedding to T.J., the day after John's funeral. It's a cozy family affair, including Janelle (pregnant with Charlie's baby but not yet married to him), and sister-in-law Diane and her brood--one of whom, the eldest son Matthew, is regarded as generally creepy.
And two murders, one funeral, and a wedding don't stop Cassie from making the annual pilgrimage to open up the Whittington summer home (left to her by Charlie's grandmother, along with fifteen million dollars). The question is, will she live to enjoy her windfall?
This fast-paced whodunit opens with a hot love scene and finishes with the ends neatly tied up--well, almost. Unless a third book is forthcoming, we'll never know. (Music swells as we fade to black...)
The author does a great job of interweaving the back story throughout the narrative, but I discovered that Foxglove, Fancy Fungus, and Fatal Family Feuds is the book to read first just so you don't have to sort out details as you tumble through the family's nutty, non-stop antics.
Check out the books on Amazon for a `look inside' both. You'll leave with one or both in your Kindle or on the way by mail.
