Sheila Travis ruefully agrees when dispatched by her colorful Aunt Mary to Charleston to investigate several mysterious accidents at the historic home of Mary's childhood friends. However, Sheila can't help remembering what her dad always said about his sister: "Trouble follows that woman like fleas follow a dog."

Sheila's hostesses are such gracious purveyors of Southern hospitality that Sheila has to keep reminding herself this is not a social visit. Even if she is initially inclined to write the accidents off as coincidence, the first murder changes her mind. The second begins to unearth dark secrets amidst the roses and honeysuckle. Wills and family history come under close scrutiny as Sheila closes in on a killer . . . unwittingly putting herself in deadly danger.

About the Author:

Patricia Houck Sprinkle studied English at Vassar College, spent a winter writing in the Scottish Highlands, and then moved to Atlanta to begin her writing career. She lives in Atlanta.

From Publishers Weekly:

In her second appearance, following Murder at Markham , Chicago-based Sheila Travis, visits her Aunt Mary in Atlanta. She is bullied into helping invalid Dolly Langdon, Mary's old friend who's worried about a series of accidents affecting her venerable Charleston family, whose members include her antique-dealer sister and two college-student granddaughters. Soon after Sheila arrives at Dolly's ancestral home in Charleston, the heirloom silver and Bible are stolen, followed by the death of Dolly's nurse, Francine Jenkins, whom many of Dolly's relatives had good reason to dislike. The brutal murder of a next-door neighbor involves the police; then Sheila is abducted; and Aunt Mary must take matters in hand before the killer is confronted. Sprinkle writes engagingly of Charleston, its mores and the proud, appealing family, but her mystery creaks in spots, with Aunt Mary adding little but unnecessary complications and a decidedly irritating personality.
