Book 1 of a new 2016 mystery series....How does a wedding planner from Lake Placid, New York end up in the trunk of a Toyota Corolla submerged in a frozen lake near Windham, nearly two hundred miles away? It's easy if you've got two contract killers after you!
Marigold Flowers doesn't understand why anyone would want to kill her. Her specialty is parties, not crime. But there's no denying that someone with a lot of money and significant resources is out to silence her. What secrets does she hold about international money laundering and a criminal syndicate? How can she save herself when she's accused of trying to murder the U. S. marshal in charge of her safety?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I dont usually read this type of book. But it kept me interested so much so it ended before I realized it. It didnt actually end with the who- dun- it, not gonna get that answer. There were some characters that had big parts then just drop off. I could not imagine having to be in witsec once never mind several times throughout my life. Some people are after you and you dont know why.Thats what Marigold Flowers is having to deal with.Will she ever have a normal life is the question she keeps asking herself.
This kept me entertained and engaged.
