With the dreaded Family Reunion looming over her head - and a broken heart to boot - Augusta Josephine Burnette takes matters in hand and leaves her hometown for a job in a seaside resort. The setting is elegance incarnate, but the atmosphere says something else entirely. With her innate sense of adventure (and just plain nosiness), AJ sets out to unravel exactly what - and who -the Mirmar Resort is hiding. AJ begins to think that time spent with her crazy family might not be as lethal as the time spent at the Miramar, and she makes an effort to leave. Thankfully, her cousin Ellie, a self-described psychic, has come along for the ride, and between the two of them, a very underhand plan is brought to light - and a murderer is nabbed.
