Two years have passed since the last murder rocked Grace Gulch. Life has settled down for the three Wilde sisters. The town is celebrating the opening of the MGM Center for the Arts with a clue-driven scavenger hunt, and Cici expects her first child in six weeks. Newcomers have joined the community, including Cici's mother-in-law, Gilda Howe.
Cici's peace is shattered when an art studio burns down with a body inside. The missing artist quickly becomes the primary suspect because of his public breakup with the victim.
An old secret forces Cici to take up sleuthing one more time. Legends of buried treasure and rumors of drugs mix with jealousy as Cici looks into arson and murder. When she comes close to solving the puzzle, a second person goes missing - her little sister. Will she find her in time?

Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
Book three in the Dressed for Death Series finds Cici and Audie married two years and expecting their first baby; Cici is still busy running her vintage clothing store and Audie, directing the local theater group; the couple is joined by Audie's mother, Gilda Howe, who has come to help care for Cici during the last weeks of her pregnancy (making for some awkward, yet ultimately endearing times together); the mystery, an artist's studio burned with a body inside, and the artist is missing, it has the town in an uproar; nobody will rest until the murder is solved; and its not long until her sisters ask Cici to investigate . . . all the local townsfolk are part of the story . . . and the three Wilde sisters resolve some long held issues between themselves; excellent conclusion to the murder mystery and to the series . . .
