Overview

Everybody in Magnet Springs is in on the not-so-secret curse of the Miss Blossom pageant. Everybody, that is, except Whiskey Mattimoe full-time real estate agent, part-time sleuth, and long-suffering owner of Abra, her willful and sometimes felonious Afghan hound.

Any hope that Abra has reformed her purse-snatching ways is dashed when the dog disappears with the bejeweled Miss Blossom tiara, a priceless heirloom insured for more than Whiskeys net worth. That's bad enough, but what Whiskey learns next chills her to the bone: every Miss Blossom must leave town or die. It would be a lot easier to laugh off the curse if it didn't keep coming true.

When the new Miss Blossom lands in the hospital and the former Miss Blossom turns up dead, Whiskeys got to catch a cold-blooded killer before the latest Miss Blossom is pushing up daisies.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Atiara-stealing dog and a long line of cursed Miss Blossom beauty queens enliven Wright's whimsical third whodunit to feature Whiskey Mattimoe, realtor and sometime sleuth (after 2006'sWhiskey Straight Up). Whiskey, a 34-year-old widow, is still adjusting to life in Magnet Springs, Mich., where her greatest challenge after selling houses is controlling her beloved late husband's pet afghan hound, Abra, who has a "penchant for stealing purses and other forbidden treats." When Abra absconds with the Miss Blossom tiara (not once, but twice!) after a well-liked intern from Whiskey's real estate firm wins the title, things really get crazy. It's a risky prize that has often brought death for past winners, including the previous year's queen. Wright's playful narrative touch and snapshot of smalltown life lightens the "curse" theme in this fizzy cozy, but the mischievous Abra really steals the show. (June)
