As happy as I usually am, the last almost-year in Autumn Vale and at Wynter Castle has been overwhelming. I arrived here on Labor Day weekend, and since then has been a roller coaster ride of getting to know the (often) weird and (sometimes) wonderful locals.
And then there have been the murders. Sigh. What to say about the murders? I didn't commit any of them, to start with. And never in my life have I been involved in a crime. No, it seems like there is some kind of alchemy involved among myself, Wynter Castle, and the crime spree right in my own (literal) backyard.
|Ah... the cosmetics aisle!|
So I don't feel like there has been any down time, you know? I always feel like I'm juggling and right now, with my home, aka my castle, full of feuding friends and foes, I need something (other than shopping, my worst vice) to take my mind off it all.
Have you ever taken up a hobby when the tension got too much, and you were afraid you might strangle someone if you didn't find a way to relax? I really don't want to strangle anyone, even if Cleta Sanson really deserves it at times.
So... what would you do to take your mind off murder?
They say one’s home is one’s castle, but when it comes to Wynter Castle, Merry would like it to belong to someone else. But until a buyer bites, she could use some extra dough, so she decides to take in renters. The idea pans out, and Merry’s able to find a handful of tenants eager to live in a real castle. The only problem is most of them are crumby, tea-swilling old biddies.
The Legion of Horrible Ladies, as Merry calls them, is led by the terribly nasty—and fabulously wealthy—Cleta Sanson. The abrasive Englishwoman keeps everyone whipped into a frenzy—until she meets an embarrassing end behind a locked door. Evidence reveals that Cleta was murdered, yet no one is privy to how the deed was done. Merry knows she must quickly find the killer before another of her guests gets greased…
