When sisters Bernie and Libby Simmons agree to cater an extravagant Halloween party in their little upstate New York town of Longely, they figured a ghost or two and a blood curdling scream might be part of the menu, but they never expected to be haunted by the deadly specter of murder . . . Halloween is coming, and Darius Witherspoon isn’t giving up on his plan for a catered costume party—despite the recent disappearance of his wife, Penelope. He may be heartbroken, but perhaps throwing a big shindig in her honor will boost his spirits. Darius hires Bernie and Libby to provide the treats. They’d prefer to avoid the festivities altogether, but as always, there are bills to be paid. And in the midst of the celebration, Darius is discovered hanging from a noose outside one of the ballroom’s French doors . . . Based on the note Darius left, which includes a sum of money and a request for them to “do something” if anything should happen to him, Bernie and Libby rule out suicide. Once the serving trays have been cleared and the decorations taken down, it’s up to the sisters to unmask a killer . . . “Charming . . . Recurring characters, especially the sisters’ widowed father add depth and humor.” —Publishers Weekly Includes Original Recipes for You to Try!
