When Aurora & Joy are invited to attend a dinner party at the estate of Bent River’s richest and oldest widow, Hilda Braithwhite, they aren’t sure what to expect. Aurora assumes the old woman simply wants to gossip about the recent murder that occurred in town, in which the two young ladies played a major role in solving. Joy, on the other hand, has spent years offering to ghostwrite Hilda’s memoir, and is hoping to schmooze enough during their time together to finally get the answer she desires.

But the night goes in a

very

different direction and, just days later, Aurora finds that

she’s

the one who's been offered a new job: to clean out Hilda Braithwhite’s estate after her death.

But

death

isn’t exactly the right word. Aurora thinks

murder

is more appropriate, and she intends to prove it. But, first, she has to figure out how that little statue of a puppy ties into it all…
