hristmas is just around the corner and the group is planning a merry party. When Sophie's expensive handbag is blasted by a bullet, no one is hurt except the handbag. But this puts a damper on plans. Then, someone dressed as Santa shatters a local golf shop owner's car windshield. The difference between the incidents is that the window is broken and a note left behind, which reads that $50,000 must be delivered the next night!
ven the wealthy can't raise that much cash overnight. To give this small group of friends heartburn, another member returns home from a cruise with a new boyfriend and a suitcase full of gold bars. Need I mention that boyfriend and gold bars disappear? An all-out effort is made to rectify this. Read
, fourth in the series, and discover the methods used to right a wrong. It's a fun book.
