"An elegant Christie-esque 1930s romp." --Deborah Crombie

"If you love Downton Abbey, you'll adore Ashley Weaver's charming debut."--Susan Elia MacNeal

"It's more terrible than you think, Mrs. Ames. It appears that Mr. Howe was murdered."

Amory Ames, a wealthy young woman questioning her marriage to her notoriously charming playboy husband, Milo, is looking for a change. She accepts a request for help from her former fianc , Gil Trent, not knowing that she'll soon become embroiled in a murder investigation that will not only test her friendship with Gil, but also will upset the status quo with her husband.

Amory accompanies Gil to the luxurious Brightwell Hotel in an attempt to circumvent the marriage of his sister, Emmeline, to Rupert Howe a disreputable ladies man. There is more than her happiness at stake, however, when Rupert is murdered and Gil is arrested for the crime. Matters are further complicated by Milo's unexpected arrival, and as the line between friend and foe becomes less clear, Amory must decide where her heart lies and catch the killer before she, too, becomes a victim.
