Summary
"After the death of Elizabeth Parker's great-uncle Martin Reynolds, the family's house in the picturesque Maryland town of St. Michaels is sold. When the new owners dig up the pool, they find the body of the man thought to have run off eight years earlier after embezzling over a million dollars from the family business. This grisly discovery not only unearths old questions about what really happened to the stolen money, but it brings Detective Joe Muldoon back into the family's lives. Eight years earlier, Elizabeth's cousin Ann reluctantly broke off her relationship with Joe due to family pressure. Ann always regretted that decision and now fears that it is too late for her and Joe-especially after she becomes the main suspect. In a clever and entertaining story with echoes of Jane Austen's Persuasion, Elizabeth tries to not only match wits against a killer who's had an eight year head-start, but to also try her hand at matchmaking"--
