Arriving at the address Frances has given them, they find a coroner's van and police cars parked outside an upscale assisted-living facility called Indwell. a One of the elderly residents has been found dead under suspicious circumstances, and Frances, seen arguing with the man earlier that day, is now a person of interest. It's up to Grace to clear her assistant's name and find the real killer-before another Indwell resident checks out early . . .a Praise for the National Bestselling Manor House Mysteries 'Julie Hyzy's fans have grown to love Ollie Paras, the White House chef.

A new story with a new murder: it's Frances this time who's in danger of getting falsely charged of murder. What's different about this book is that Grace is actively participating in the investigation of the murder. I think in the previous books, it's been partly an unintentional, wrong place at the wrong time discovery of the actual murderers. But here, after solving three murder cases, people are all too eager to provide their opinions and suspicions to Grace. And that's not something I'm really down with and as a result, I didn't enjoy the book as much.

Moral of the story: Money can be your salvation or your death.
