At the Death on Demand Bookstore - "the best mystery bookstore east of Atlanta" - somebody always seems to turn up dead. In Hart's latest installment, charming owners Annie and Max Darling return to investigate a mysterious death at an art gallery opening on their South Carolina island. When heiress and gallery owner Virginia Neville hosts a bash for an important new collection, she plans to announce her engagement to a much younger man. But then murder crashes the party, and Max is called in to investigate while Annie takes matters into her own hands. Virginia's family members are not the only suspects - someone close to Annie looks guilty as well. Series devotees will rejoice as Annie and Max's banter recalls the high jinks of Nick and Nora Charles.
