Mystery Woman Sleuth
Sisters Bernadette and Libby Simmons are thrilled they've
been asked to cater a haunted house fundraiser. But they
soon discover that ghosts aren't the only unwanted guests
when a murderer strikes...
With the promise of a
hefty commission and some valuable word-of-mouth for their
catering business, A Little Taste of Heaven, Bernadette
and Libby Simmons agree to cater the charity haunted house
being staged at the old Peabody School. The gothic
building-complete with towers and turrets-is the perfect
setting for a haunted house fundraiser. But what makes the
setting even more eerie are the rumors milling about town
that the school is haunted by the ghost of Bessie Osgood,
a girl who died in an "accident" years before. Bernie and
Libby don't believe in ghosts although they both agree
there's something creepy about the Peabody School. And
when wealthy socialite Amethyst Applegate is found dead in
the haunted house, the sisters wonder if a murderer might
also be lurking about Peabody's gloomy halls.
life, Amethyst Applegate earned herself a reputation as a
notorious home wrecker. The vicious vixen had so many
enemies it's a surprise she stayed alive as long as she
did. From Inez Colley, whose husband had a steamy fling
with Amethyst one night, to Bob Small who went to jail for
grand larceny because of Amethyst, and Zach Timberland who
blames Amethyst for ruining his daughter's life. And
that's just the beginning of the long list of suspects.
While almost everyone Amethyst ever met might have
a motive for killing her, not everyone had access to the
Peabody School. All Bernie and Libby know is that it's
time for them to crack this case wide open. But when they
keephitting one dead end after another, they realize the
key to solving Amethyst's death lies in discovering what
really caused Bessie's death all those years ago. And if
Bernie and Libby don't solve this mystery soon, they might
become the next stars in a real-life horror
