Innkeeper and amateur sleuth Judith McMonigle Flynn's worst nightmare comes true when Vivian Flynn--husband Joe's first wife--moves back into the neighborhood. Vivian, who has become mysteriously wealthy, plans to build a big, bad condoon their idyllic cul-de-sac. Outraged, Judith and her neighbors vow to fight the project to the death.
Vivian isn't the only newcomer to the area. Frankie Buss, son of another of Vivian's ex-husbands, has arrived at Hillside Manor with his wife. Vivian was married to his father for what seemed like minutes before she inherited his vast wealth--and ran off with his other son. Now Frankie's dying for his share of the pot of gold.
Vivian's got more than one mortal enemy--but which one ended up dead in her back yard? If she wants her home sweet home to stay happy, Judith will have to find out.
