The old MacNeill mansion, located in the heart of thoroughbred horse country outside Englishton, Kentucky, has recently been converted to a senior citizens home. Janice Harmon, a resident of GlenMary House, is happy that life has finally returned back to normal after the murder of John Carpenter. But what Janice does not know is that tragedy is about to strike again.
When fellow resident Annabel Douglas passes away, the last thing Janice suspects is that shes been murdered. But when the sheriff tells her that Annabel was drugged and asphyxiated, she soon realizes they are all suspects. It seems impossible that one of the senior citizens could have committed the crime, and even more unlikely that her young friend and mansion inheritress, Emily Carpenter, is guilty. Yet, they all had a motiveand an opportunity. As the list of suspects grows to include Winifred Peale, her best friend and mistress of Carrie Creek Farm, Janice must rely on Chief Inspector Simon Hollingsworth to help her come up with the answer before GlenMary House is forced to close its doors forever.
In this gripping tale, an amateur sleuth must solve yet another complex mystery after a fellow resident in her senior citizen home is murdered.
