Will Ann was mad at the Bloodworth’s daughter Sunny or so she indicated when she approached Kitty as the couple was having dinner the previous night. Kitty finds the name of a private investigator Will Ann had contacted but when she attempts to talk to the investigator Kitty is in an accident that leaves her fighting for her life. Once she is on the road to recovery Kitty once again tries to figure out what happened. Since Will Ann was not the most agreeable person during her lifetime, there are a large number of suspects.
This is a great story and the book has a marvelous cover that makes one yearn for times when life at least seemed a bit simpler.
