Daisy McFarland is at it again. As a cozy crime writer, she wants nothing more than to create the next Christie series that will skyrocket up the New York Times bestseller list. But her muse is stuck in neutral as she painfully tries to conjure up the perfect murder mystery.
Stuck in a rut, the retired American schoolteacher, now residing in the quaint British village of Worlingburgh, decides to add some real-life exposure to stoke the embers of her waning creativity. Her quest leads her to respond to an advert for volunteer companionship at the regional residential home. Much to her surprise, the decision opens her up to a world of lively folk who enjoy a good natter and offer unexpected inspiration.
What Daisy doesn’t anticipate is two deaths that occur in the sleepy village and the direct connection they have with those in the residential accommodations. When Detective Superintendent Sam Decker is called upon to assist with the case, Daisy has further opportunities to spend time with the attractive detective. Where do the two go from here, and will Daisy ever finish her cozy?
