Cape Mayhem (A Meg Daniels Mysteery)
Cape Mayhem (A Meg Daniels Mystery)
by Jane Kelly
Meg Daniels arrives manless in Cape May, New Jersey, for what should have been a romantic off-season weekend for two. Though unattached at the moment, Meg's courtship with trouble has been in high gear lately—her Cape May holiday soon promises more of the same.

It seems that, overnight, a guest at the Parsonage Bed & Breakfast has undergone an impossible transformation. Suspecting foul play, Meg enlists hunky Hank Bergman, an investigator in the local DA's office, and the B&B's spunky co-owner, George Hilburn, to help her answer the question: "Who was that lady who checked in with Wallace Gimbel?".
