From the author of the Lois Meade Mysteries...

Save the date: Ivy Elizabeth Beasley is ready to share her golden years and plans to wed Roy Vivian Goodman on the fifth of May. A spinster no more, the private eye is in for marriage, murder, and mishaps galore…

 
Its the talk of Ivy Beasley's retirement community—her fiancé, Roy, has quite the hefty inheritance. She couldnt care less about his fortune, but it has a way of luring long-lost relatives out of the woodwork. And when, against Ivys wishes, Roy asks his dubious nephew, furniture salesman Steven Wright, to be the best man, she cannot help but disapprove. After all, she suspects hes out for his uncles fortune…
 
But after the banns of Ivy and Roys marriage are announced at the Barrington village church and an anonymous voice shouts out a protest, the wedding may be off. And with the discovery of a body in a bed in a nearby furniture shop, Ivy and her team of sleuths at Enquire Within may be closer to a dangerous reception than they realize.

Synopsis:

Lois usually steers clear of local gossip, but after tidying up the house that newcomer Reg Abthorpe claims to have inherited, she has more suspicions than she can keep to herself. The home's previous resident was known for his beloved terrier, robust nature, and deficiency of living relatives. So why is Reg presenting himself as the old man's nephew-and where could the sprightly geriatric (and his dog) possibly have gone?

Synopsis:

It's another fine mess for Lois Meade and her long-suffering husband Derek. When elderly neighbors begin to disappear and faithful pets are slaughtered, Lois calls upon her old ally Chief Inspector Hunter Cowgill--much to Derek's distress.
