(From the publisher):
China Bayles already has her hands full balancing her job, her family, and her friends' romantic entanglements. Then her teenage son finds some skeletal remains during a local cave dig - remains from a not-so-distant, not-so-accidental death.
This disturbing development doesn't distract China from happier events, like the opening of a new community theater donated by the elderly Obermann sisters. Unfortunately, haughty Jane Obermann has insisted that the first production be her own play about the Obermann family's aristocratic history. But the premiere party ends abruptly when a ne'er-do-well handyman with a grudge against the sisters is shot dead by Jane while breaking into the Obermann estate...
