Home for the Murder

When Minnesota baby-boomer Meggie Moore is given the opportunity to housesit for a friend in Key West, Florida, she jumps at the chance. Her husband, Walter, looking forward to completing the first item on his bucket list with a small game hunting trip to South Dakota, is unable to accompany her.

Shirley, Meggie’s faithful friend and sidekick, had vowed “never again” to become involved in Meggie’s housesitting adventures, but when she discovers her husband plans to go hunting with Walter, she changes her mind and travels to Key West with Meggie.

The working vacation takes a frightening turn when Meggie and Shirley find a body floating in the swimming pool where they are housesitting.

Winging their way back to Minnesota, they believe they are leaving their troubles behind them and are not prepared for what awaits them back home.
