The second book in the popular Scarlet Wilson Mystery Series....A pleasant night in Bay Head, New Jersey turns dangerous as Scarlet Wilson heads for home after a delightful weekend at the beach with boyfriend Kenny "Captain Peacock" Tolliver. A terrified teenager, chased by a homicidal maniac, clings to her car, refusing to let go of the moon roof. What do you do when a determined killer comes at the girl attached to your windshield, knife in hand? If you're “Miz Scarlet”, you get creative and put the pedal to the metal, even as the cars pile up in your wake.
That wild ride begins a journey of discovery for Jenny Mulroney, a cancer orphan. The wicked stepfather has chased the teenager out of the home she shared with her mother and onto the road. Traumatized, Jenny has no one to turn to and nowhere to go, until Miz Scarlet shows up and takes her home to the Four Acorns Inn, the family bed & breakfast she runs in the quaint village of Cheswick, CT.
While security expert Kenny delves into Jenny's secret past, searching for clues and the New Jersey State Police investigate a series of related crimes, the teenager begins to find her way again. But Jenny's been dishonest about the events that triggered the brutal attack by a crazed killer. Now she's put everyone at the Four Acorns Inn in peril.
When uncut diamonds stolen in a heist turn up encased in lavender glycerin soap, it's more intrigue than Miz Scarlet can resist. With the help of the elderly "Googins girls", her brother Bur (better known as Colonel Grey Poupon), and Larry, the foxy female homicide investigator, the intrepid amateur sleuth is hot on the trail, determined to solve the mystery.
