In her second appearance, following Murder at Markham , Chicago-based Sheila Travis, visits her Aunt Mary in Atlanta. She is bullied into helping invalid Dolly Langdon, Mary's old friend who's worried about a series of accidents affecting her venerable Charleston family, whose members include her antique-dealer sister and two college-student granddaughters. Soon after Sheila arrives at Dolly's ancestral home in Charleston, the heirloom silver and Bible are stolen, followed by the death of Dolly's nurse, Francine Jenkins, whom many of Dolly's relatives had good reason to dislike. The brutal murder of a next-door neighbor involves the police; then Sheila is abducted; and Aunt Mary must take matters in hand before the killer is confronted.

This is the first book that I have read from this series, though not from this author. I prefer her "Southern Mystery" series better but am willing to read another from this series. This book dragged a little and parts felt like 'filler', as if the publisher had required a certain number of pages. The main characters were enjoyable and quirky enough to be unique.

Accidents and then murders are occuring in an old family in Charleston.
Were the accidents really accidents? And who would profit from the murders going on in this old Southern family?
A nice easy and interesting read.
