When she’s asked to host a murder mystery fundraiser for the people of Aurelian Hills, Georgia, she’s totally on board. Champagne, intrigue, and community. Yes, please. Then game night happens and a fake murder turns into a real one, leaving her mentor and knitting buddy Fiona at the top of the suspect list, with her best pal Beau a close second. Oops? Jane’s not about to leave the fate of her loved one to, well, fate. On the hunt for clues, she turns the small town upside down. As scandalous secrets surface, a single truth becomes clear: if she doesn’t solve the murder fast, Jane will be the next victim.
