Publisher's Summary

What's the couple next door really hiding? Vintage fashionista and amateur sleuth Charley Carpenter finds out in this engrossing cozy mystery from the USA Today best-selling author of The Book Club Murders.

In a small town like Oakwood, Ohio, everyone knows everyone else's business - except for Charley Carpenter's standoffish new neighbors, who tend to keep to themselves. But behind closed doors, Paxton Sharpe's habit of screaming bloody murder at all hours of the day keeps Charley awake all night. Coupled with the stress of the increasingly delayed expansion of her shop, Old Hat Vintage Fashions, the insomnia is driving Charley crazy. Her only distraction? The local paper's irreverent new advice column, "Ask Jackie".

Jackie's biting commentary usually leaves Charley and her employees rolling on the floor, but her latest column is no laughing matter. An oddly phrased query hinting at a child in peril immediately puts Charley on high alert. After arriving home to a bloodcurdling scream next door, she follows the noise into the basement and makes a grisly discovery: the body of Judith Sharpe's adult daughter. With Detective Marcus Trenault off in Chicago, Charley decides to take matters into her own hands. Convinced that the murder is connected to the desperate plea for help in "Ask Jackie", she embarks on a twisted investigation that has her keeping up with the Sharpes - before a killer strikes again.
