UK born Lady Margaret Turnbull, the owner of Lawler’s Loft Bed and Breakfast, is a guest culinary judge at a village fete in Bangalow, Australia when a patron drops dead; poisoned after sampling a prize winning strawberry tart. Detective Tom Sullivan investigates and initially diagnoses that Mrs. Davies died from a heart attack. But village busybody and part time woman sleuth Maggie Turnbull has other ideas, which to the annoyance of Detective Sullivan are usually right. “Poisoning is not random. It’s a private, personal affair” is Maggie Turnbull’s credo for which she must untangle a web of lies and secrets that will require her to re-visit a 30 year old case to catch today’s perpetrator.
