The last thing Daphne Jones expects to see as she stands on Rivers End jetty, practicing the ceremony for a wedding, is a body floating by.
Suspicion falls on her friend Christie when the deceased is identified as an ex-employee, a woman who left under a cloud. Nobody who knows Christie believes she's responsible - except the police. Roping in best friend, Elizabeth, Daphne sets out to run her own investigation.
Why was the deceased dressed in winter clothing on a summer's day? And why had she begged Christie to meet her late at night?
With the police about to arrest Christie, Daphne races to find evidence to exonerate her, as well as lead to the real killer. Will the wedding be postponed and the wrong person arrested? Not if Daphne can solve the puzzle in time.
If you've read any of the Rivers End books, you'll love this fun and quirky quick read which features many of the beloved characters such as Christie, Martin, Thomas, Elizabeth and more... not to mention Randall the goldie. A light and quirky story with a nosy main character.
