is bad enough that Dani Greene has gone into hiding from her
Aunt Hazel. She is just not your fun relative. It is sugaring
season in Sugar Grove, NH and Dani should be making sure the
sap is running to make delicious maple syrup. She and her
sister Celedon are hiding out at The Stack Shack. Not really
a good hiding place - since the entire town ends up eating
there. Dani has to leave before eating - since her unreliable
contractor, Russ, is threatening to sue her is she doesn't
get down to town hall immediately. He is doing the renovations
of the Opera House that is being sponsored by Dani's family.
Russ has found a skeleton hidden in the town hall basement.
This is the first time Russ will not need an excuse to stop
working. Consensus is that the body belongs to Spooner Duffy
who disappeared 30 years ago with a large amount of money
that belonged to the town. Dani will have to contend with
her unwanted relative while trying to solve a murder that
took place a generation earlier.
Things to ponder: Who bought the old building on Church Street?
Why did Tansey faint when she saw the spoons Russ found near
the skeleton in the town hall basement? Has a murderer been
living in Sugar Grove, NH for thirty years? Why didn't Jade
come to visit the Greene family with her Grandmother Hazel?

keep you turning those pages into the wee hours of the morning.
