Something old, something new, something dead…
It’s autumn in Santa Fe, and Ellen Rosings is planning her Aunt Nat’s wedding at the Wisteria Tearoom. Her progress is derailed by a dead body—yes, another one—that she finds in her aunt’s driveway.
The corpse is an artist Ellen saw that morning selling gem-handled knives at the Tesuque Pueblo Flea Market. The detective assigned to the case—not, alas, the handsome, sympathetic Tony Aragón—is looking to Ellen to explain why the body ended up in Nat’s driveway. Tony is busy on his own case and can’t help.
Soon the dead artist starts appearing in Ellen’s dreams, holding the knife that was found beside him. He wasn’t stabbed. What does it mean?
Between the dreams, the looming wedding, work pressures and a tenacious case of hiccups, Ellen fears she’s unraveling. Then a gem-handled knife is left embedded in Nat’s door, and Ellen knows she must solve the artist’s death before another crime strikes closer to home.
