Publisher Description

Cabot Cove’s crime-solving novelist Jessica Fletcher has another mystery to solve, this time for the sake of a dearly departed friend, in this installment of the USA Today bestselling series.

Jessica and her friend Doctor Seth Hazlitt get the shock of their lives when they travel to a Florida retirement community for the funeral of their old friend Portia Shelby, only to discover that she did not die of natural causes. Needless to say, America’s beloved sleuth soon finds herself with a Palm Beach potboiler on her hands. Who would want to kill her dear friend? Was it a neighbor with a personal grudge or maybe the victim’s handsome husband, next in line to inherit her riches? One thing is certain: the beach umbrellas aren’t the only shady things in this seemingly innocent community. Now Jessica is in a race against time to solve this Floridian mystery before it’s too late.

  • “This Jessica Fletcher mystery keeps us guessing. Jessica and Doctor Hazlitt pay a condolence visit at a Florida retirement community where things are not as they seem. The sympathetic and realistic portrait of retirement living reminds us that getting older is not for sissies. Cynthia Darlow renders a variety of accents. Happily, she sounds exactly like TV’s Angela Lansbury. The library edition packaging is outstanding for appearance and ease of use. For the inviting description of Key West, the Florida travel industry should send the authors a year’s supply of authentic key lime pie.”
