As if by magic, beautiful and inspiring illuminations appear at Magnolia Manor after the new owner arrives. Will those, an inheritance of 150 family letters, a doll show surprise, Detective Richard Black, family, and friends alter Rachael Hathaway’s plans after she loses her job? Should she become a partner of the detective on a Blue Slough mystery and at the indoor beach party luncheonette? Anonymous notes try to discourage her. Yet ancient lore and artifacts, including a map of family migration, reveal family history and a queen’s realm. Can Rachael help solve the community mystery, prove a family legend existed with the clues found, and restore her Hathaway heritage—Magnolia Gardens wildlife habitat at Dragonfly Pond—in time for the Summer Solstice Cotillion fundraiser in a season of guidings tidings?
