Life takes a dramatic turn for Josiah shen she witnessess a death at an engagment party for guess who . . . Matt. Matt? Yes Matt.
Charming socialite Addison DeWitt falls into a fit after taking a sip of bourbon. That would be upsetting enough, but Josiah is sure it is murder. However, no one will
believe her except for Lady Elsmere and Meriah Caldwell, the famous mystery writer. The three of them conspire to bring the murderer to justice. It turns out that the suspect is always three steps ahead of them.
To make matters worse, Josiah’s daughter, Asa, decides to move to London, Franklin leaves town and Jake starts singing a different tune. Josiah doubts her ability to meet the future alone. Maybe it’s time to sell the Butterfly and move to Florida with the rest of the old folks.
Josiah is still healing and many traumatic things happen, the least of which is another possible murder. Other things on her mind are that her daughter has decided to move to London, Jake, her care giver has decided to go back to his sick wife, and Matt, her gay friend is engaged to be married. Poor Josiah.
Another great installment of the Josiah Reynolds Mysteries.
