Lexie Starr, the 50-year-old, newly married co-owner of a B&B, needs something to keep her busy during the off-season. Filling in for the head librarian, Bertha Duckworthy, seems the perfect choice.
Until she finds "Ducky" hanged from the library's rafters.
The police rule the death as a suicide, but Lexie disagrees. Determined to obtain justice for "Ducky", Lexie finds herself in the killer's crosshairs. But with characteristic persistence and armed with caffeine, Lexie is determined to prevail.
