Summary "When Beth McKenzie returns to her hometown and attempt to turn an old Southern mansion into a bed-and-breakfast called the Dixie Dew, her first guest is murdered. Three days later a young priest is found strangled in his chapel. The whole town of Littleboro is turned upside down, inside out, and the town cop, Ossie Delbardo, is not cut out to solve the murders. Beth fears her newly opened B&B is in danger of failing. She's even more worried that she is Ossie's number-one suspect. Aided by her friend from high school and trusty handyman, she sets out to discover the truth of the murders. Littleboro has its share of characters, some of whom are helpful and others misleading. There's Crazy Reba, who lives in a tree, bathes in any bathtub she finds empty, and Dumpster-dives; Verna, the town know-it-all and affectionate owner of Robert Redford, a huge white rabbit; and Miss Tempie Merritt, music teacher and organist who always wears a hat, gloves, and lace-trimmed white socks. When Beth herself is attacked, there's no more time for baking muffins and stencilling pineapples on the porch. She's in a race to uncover her neighbors' secrets before her hometown becomes her burial ground"--Dust jacket.
