Georgie and Darcy are finally on their honeymoon in
Kenya's Happy Valley, but murder crashes the party in this
all-new installment in the New York Times bestselling
I was so excited when Darcy announced out of the blue that
we were flying to Kenya for our extended honeymoon. Now that
we are here, I suspect he has actually been sent to fulfill
another secret mission. I am trying very hard not to pick a
fight about it, because after all, we are in paradise! Darcy
finally confides that there have been robberies in London
and Paris. It seems the thief was a member of the
aristocracy and may have fled to Kenya. Since we are staying
in the Happy Valleyâ€”the center of upper-class English
lifeâ€”we are well positioned to hunt for clues and ferret out
Now that I am a sophisticated married woman, I am doing my
best to sound like one. But crikey! These aristocrats are a
thoroughly loathsome sort enjoying a completely decadent
lifestyle filled with wild parties and rampant infidelity.
And one of the leading lights in the community, Lord
Cheriton, has the nerve to make a play for me. While I am on
my honeymoon! Of course, I put an end to that right off.
When he is found bloodied and lifeless along a lonely
stretch of road, it appears he fell victim to a lion. But it
seems that the Happy Valley community wants to close the
case a bit too quickly. Darcy and I soon discover that there
is much more than a simple robbery and an animal attack to
contend with here in Kenya. Nearly everyone has a motive to
want Lord Cheriton dead and some will go to great lengths to
silence anyone who asks too many questions. The hunt is on!
I just hope I can survive my honeymoon long enough to catch
a killer. . .
