Kennel owner, Gracie Andersen uncovers plenty of motives and suspects when she attempts to help the victim’s widow in her time of loss. While Gracie strays into some rather dangerous territory, her persnickety cousin, Isabelle unknowingly rounds up the suspect pool at a political soiree. Then things get interesting.
