She even has a celebration for an amazing mystery author, which brings several guests to stay, including a book dealer and his family. But things aren’t so sweet with this family. When the book dealer turns up dead, it goes from bad to worse after his daughter points the finger of blame in Charlotte’s direction by claiming her father found a scandalous secret about Charlotte’s aunt.
