Roanoke, Virginia, is home to some of the countryâ€™s
most exquisite gardens, and itâ€™s Camellia Harrisâ€™s job to
promote them. But when a political fundraiser turns deadly,
everyoneâ€™s a candidate for murder...
her best friend, Annie, are planning a gala for a local
Senate candidateâ€”a murder mystery themed silent auction
where the guests bid on who will be the nightâ€™s â€śvictim.â€ť
Coordinating a beautiful display of fall flowers and
planning the perfect fake crime is hard enough, but with a
guest list that is a â€śwhoâ€™s whoâ€ť of the Roanoke elite, Cam
has her hands full navigating the egos and grudges of her
high society guests.
When local financial tycoon
Derrick Windermere is found dead next to a shattered pot of
chrysanthemums, the nightâ€™s fun and games quickly turn
serious. Half the guests had good reason to want Windermere
dead, but only one is suspiciously missing in actionâ€”Annieâ€™s
father. Now Cam will not only have to figure out which
partygoer is a killer, but find her friendâ€™s father before
all their reputations end up dragged through the mud...
