Murder Mansion Publisher's Summary

Donna's dream of running a Victorian bed and breakfast is almost a reality. Her lack of inn keeping expertise, a shabby house in need of dire renovation and lack of money has slowed her down a bit. The murdered man in the upstairs parlor is her biggest obstacle. Less determined people might give up, but not Donna. No killer is going to stop her from serving apple crumb cake to high paying guests. Her natural skill at the Clue board game, along with the grudging assistance of veteran detective Mark Taber, an overweight Puggle, and a chatty octogenarian neighbor should help her sniff out the killer unless she's snuffed out first.
