The most delectable sleuthing couple since Nick met Nora, Annie and Max Darling manage to find quite a bit of murder in their allegedly safe and serene South Carolina island resort. After all, murder is Annie's business--well sort of. She's the proprietor of the popular Death on Demand mystery bookstore and cafe, and her establishment seems to attract trouble like Annie's pesky felines, Dorothy L. and Agatha, attract furballs. And just when Annie and Max settle down for some quality, and much needed, time together, some corpse always rears its ugly head. Now as they anticipate a festive summer, the irresistible duo watch their Fourth of July holiday explode not only with fun and fireworks, but with murder as well.
