With the holidays gone and Hillside Manor almost empty, Innkeeper Judith McMonigle Flynn has a bad case of the blues. A housesitting stint at her aunt and uncle’s retirement home on Whoopee Island with cousin Renie seems like the ideal pick-me-up.

Not surprising in an area full of older folks—until they learn it wasn’t a bad ticker that did in the victim, but a very sharp knife. With clouds of suspicion hovering over her and Renie, Judith reluctantly begins sleuthing—if only to prove they didn’t commit the crime.

Ex-cop Callahan Garrity was more than happy to leave the Atlanta P.D. behind her to start her own business — the House Mouse cleaning service — and to indulge in a bit of freelance private investigation on the side. However, she owes too much to her former partner, Bucky Deavers, to refuse his request that she accompany him to the department’s annual St. Patrick’s Day bash. But the celebrating ends abruptly — and badly — when Bucky is shot during an apparent liquor store robbery while they’re on the way home.
Callahan is devastated — and the talk that perhaps Bucky was “dirty” only intensifies her pain. Now, with the help of her feisty “Mice,” she’s determined to find the culprit and clear her friend’s name, even if it means piercing the veil of secrecy surrounding an Irish fraternal police organization that might be brewing up something far more lethally potent than green beer.
