There hasn’t been a murder in weeks, so Sibyl and her eccentric friends, Cressida Upthorpe and Mr. Buttons, breathe a sigh of relief. Yet no sooner have honeymooners, a famous businessman and his wife, booked in to start their married life in bliss, when a tragic accident befalls one of them after a breakfast of prawns. The authorities move to shut down the boarding house for safety reasons.
The police focus their attention on the husband, believing he was the target, and protesters move to town to rally against the husband’s company, which is destroying the local wilderness land.
What with Blake’s ex-girlfriend coming back to town, and a rival boarding house opening up nearby, can Sibyl keep a cool head, solve the murder, and save the boarding house from the authorities?
