Abigail Timberlake Washburn, petite but feisty proprietor of Charlestons Den of Antiquity antiques shop, stopped speaking to best friend and temporary decorating partner Wynnell Crawford a month ago after questioning her choice of a cheap, three-foot-high replica of Michaelangelos David to adorn the garden of a local bed-and-breakfast. But now Wynnell has broken the silence with one phone call ... from prison! It seems the b&b owner has been fatally beaned allegedly by the same tacky statue and Wynnells been fingered by the cops for the bashing.
But Abby suspects theres more to this well-sculpted slaying than initially meets the eye, and she wants to take a closer look at the not-so-bereaved widower and the two very odd couples presently guesting at the hostelry. Because if bad taste was a capital crime, Wynnell would be guilty as sin but shes certainly no killer!
