Here’s a tip: if your ex-husband’s mistress-cum-missus asks for your help in proving that he cheated on her while he was married to you, just say no. And, whatever you do, don’t invite her in . . . Never one to heed her own advice, coffeehouse owner Maggy Thorsen does just that when Rachel Slattery Thorsen comes knocking on her door. When the new Mrs Thorsen disappears that same evening, Maggy quickly finds herself embroiled in a murder investigation involving Rachel’s hotelier family – Milwaukee’s answer to the Hiltons. The Slatterys believe that Maggy’s ex-husband Ted killed Rachel, and will spare no expense to prove it. Torn between wanting to see her cheating ex fry, and protecting their son’s college fund, Maggy sets out to find the truth, both about Rachel’s death and about the other other woman.
