Jill Gardner, the owner of Coffee, Books, and More, has been suckered into playing a twenties flapper in murder/dinner theater. Though it is for charity ... Of course everyone is expecting a dead body at the dress rehearsal ... but this one isn't acting! It turns out the main suspect is the late actor's conniving girlfriend Sherry ... who also happens to be the ex-wife of Jill's main squeeze. Sherry is definitely a master manipulator ... but is she a killer? Jill may discover the truth only when the curtain comes up on the final act ... and by then, it may be far too late.
