Design job? Check. General contractor/sparring partner? Check. Dead body, mystery to solve, and guilty suspicion? Check, check, and check.
Haley Farrell is getting her life under control. She's got a great design business, a successful auction house, and loving friends and family. But finding a dead girl on the patio is not a good way to start a decorating job--especially when your general contractor is the main suspect. And the body is only the beginning.
Always curious and always in trouble, Haley sets out to solve the crime. Even though she finds Dutch Merrill infuriating, she can't believe he's involved. But with the karate chop cop, Lila Tsu, watching every move and the neighborhood "Jessica Fletcher" constantly under foot, will Haley be able to free Dutch? Or will she paint herself into a very dangerous corner--with a murderer lying in wait?
