Product Description

Rose is happy with her new life in Tabor with her brother's family, and her slowly warming relationship with Andrew, publisher of the Tabor Picayune. The only blight is the next door neighbor of Homespun Theater, Mrs. Pluch.

Andrew has his own troubles with the increasingly annoying Myrna, part-time receptionist, gossip, and town know-it-all. When newspaper customers who irritate Myrna suffer vandalism, Andrew is unwilling to suspect her -- but who else can it be?

Rose and Andrew joins forces to investigate, and are delighted with how well they work together. Love is in the air as the wedding of Andrew's daughter approaches -- and frustration, as conflicting clues and red herrings lead them to a preposterous conclusion.

Excerpt

"Stop right there." Rose straightened up, the cake still in her hands. "I don't care who you imagine you are in this town, you will not talk to this lovely child that way. How dare you?" The wide-eyed shock of Mrs. Pluch spurred her on, glee giving her courage, despite knowing her voice was rising and drawing attention. "Just shut your nasty mouth before someone shuts it for you."

"You're threatening me?" the woman wheezed, backing up two steps.

"I don't have to threaten you. You've bullied and offended three-quarters of this town. I'm sure there are plenty of people with far less patience than me who would gladly step in and silence your nasty, lying, foolish tongue. Permanently!"

Rose turned sharply, putting her back to her, and took a few deep breaths. Her legs and arms were trembling just enough, she wasn't sure she could bend over to put the cake on the cart rack without dropping it. If she didn't put it down soon, she would.

From three different spots in the surrounding wide-open space of the grocery store -- fresh produce, the arched doorway into the wine corner, and the delicatessen -- people applauded. Rose caught her breath, her face instantly flaming hot.

Mrs. Pluch let out a shriek like a steam whistle. The next thing she knew, Rose staggered backwards against the curving glass display case, the heavy cardboard box of sheet cake bending and tipping upward, and shoved hard into her chest just at the juncture of her ribs. Melissa let out a yelp, someone shouted, and Rose grappled at the box to keep it from falling.

She hit the floor sitting, with shattered chunks of cake across her lap and several feet of floor to her right. All she could think of was making sure her dress was pulled down over her knees. Voices gathered around her, and Melissa crouched in front of her, eyes wide and face pink with excitement.
