In 1935, it's simply not ladylike for young women to involve themselves in macabre matters such as murder. But fiercely independent mystery writer Marjorie McClelland, a.k.a. Miss Never-Say-Die, can?t resist when another killing strikes their small Connecticut town. No one sees the poison dart hit a man riding the Ferris wheel at the church festival. Much to the annoyance of her fianc?, police detective Robert Jameson, Marjorie finagles her way into the investigation. And soon Creighton Ashcroft, a wealthy Englishman hopelessly smitten with the beautiful writer, is helping out, too. Together, the unusual trio piece together the life of the victim who left behind two wives and a huge gambling debt. While the case unfolds, Marjorie faces another dilemma that sends her heart into a tailspin. Should she marry the reliable, if dull, police detective . . . or is she ready to risk security for passion?
