“…a unique, riveting, engaging mystery that all fans of the genre will find immensely satisfying.”
—The Midwest Book Review
Meg Daniels arrives manless in Cape May, New Jersey, for what should have been a romantic off-season weekend for two. Though unattached at the moment, Meg’s courtship with trouble has been in high gear lately—her Cape May holiday soon promises more of the same.
It seems that, overnight, a guest at the Parsonage Bed & Breakfast has undergone an impossible transformation. Suspecting foul play, Meg enlists hunky Hank Bergman, an investigator in the local DA’s office, and the B&B’s spunky co-owner, George Hilburn, to help her answer the question: “Who was that lady who checked in with Wallace Gimbel?”.
The weather is frosty, but the trail is hot as Meg and crew search for a missing dancer and the truth behind a scheme marked by imposters, infidelities, extortion, and—if Meg’s hunch is right—murder in Cape May.
