with some old friends and Sam. The four of them get along
well. Christmas has been crazy with the festivities and
Eve's pending nuptials. Eve met Roy on the internet and
they plan to settle near Phyllis but are living in a bed and
breakfast outside Waterford until they decide where to
Phyllis is stunned when her son, Mike, appears to tell them
that Eve is missing and Roy has been murdered. When Eve
stops by that day, it is clear she has no idea of what has
happened. Her lack of alibi and what they learn about her
husband as they start investigating, make her a prime
suspect in the eyes of the local law enforcement.
As always, Phyllis can't leave it up to the sheriff when one
of her dear friends is being threatened. This time, Phyllis
will land herself in a heap of trouble. Not only will they
learn more about the man Eve married, they will learn more
about Eve's past as well. With a DA bent on re-election,
Phyllis will land in jail for obstruction of justice.
When Phyllis gets her dander up, no one can stop her. She
and Sam will find themselves getting in deeper.

happy to host the event in her house and to bake the
and groom a delicious three-tiered coconut wedding cake.
Even though a snowstorm in the forecast seems like a
for disaster, the day runs as smoothly as butter cream.
But the marriage doesn’t last long past the honeymoon.
Roy’s found dead at a Weatherford bed-and-breakfast,
the top suspect. Now Phyllis must find out who iced Roy
before her friend finds herself behind bars…
