in Savannah, GA being held in two weeks, the mudslinging is
getting out of hand. Kip Seymour is running against Judge
Gloria Summerside for City Council Alderman. Kip’s attack
ads are getting vicious. Gloria has had enough. She goes to
his campaign headquarters and has it out with him. She is
yelling at him right on the street - threatening his very
life. Not something a Southern lady normally would be caught
doing. The topper is Gloria connects with one punch and decks
Kip. This is seen by anyone with a cell phone camera and Reagan
Summerside - who is Gloria’s daughter. Gloria is sent
to The Prissy Fox consignment shop to wait and see if Reagan
can fix this mess. With the arrival of Reagan’s Auntie
Kiki, they go to talk to Kip. Being told he is busy does not
stop this duo from interrupting and going into his office.
What they find is a dead Kip on the floor. Since Kip had a
bad ticker, everyone is convinced Kip had a heart attack.
The police have another idea. It seems the bourbon in Kip’s
glass has been poisoned. Guess who brought it to Kip? If you
are thinking Gloria – then you would be right. Now the
police have taken Reagan’s mom in for questioning. Looks
like Gloria is the prime suspect. Reagan, with help from Auntie
Kiki, will have to find the real killer. Reagan had better
be careful or she could be marked down as the next victim.
to ponder: Who poisoned the bourbon and is trying to frame
Gloria for murder? Will there still be an election? Where
is the bottle of bourbon?
