Aunt Bessie wonders if a holiday is a good idea. Thomas and Amy Rockwell have had something of a shock. When Doona suggests a holiday to Lakeview Holiday Park, their father, John, isn’t sure whether to agree or not. In the end, Bessie, Doona, John, and the children make the journey during the February half-term break.
Aunt Bessie wonders why Doona’s solicitor, Stuart Stanley, happens to be at the park at the same time.
Stuart fills Doona in quickly enough. He’s there because another solicitor is about to challenge Doona’s right to the estate of her former husband, Charles Adams. Carl Dietrich is working for Lawrence Jenkins, the man who was a business partner to Charles, but who is currently in prison for fraud and other crimes.
Aunt Bessie wonders what it would be like to have a holiday where no one is murdered.
When Carl turns up dead, Doona, John, and even Bessie seem to top the list of suspects. Can Bessie help the local police inspector, Margaret Hopkins, work out what really happened to Carl? Was it murder, or is too much to hope that Carl simply had a heart attack? When a second man dies, Bessie can’t help but wonder why she keeps finding herself tangled up in murder investigations.
