If Grace Cassidy had known she was going to find a naked corpse in her hotel bed, lose every penny she had in the world, and encounter zany characters straight from the Mad Hatter¿s tea party, she might have kept her usual poise when she spotted husband Charlie¿s mistress at their business convention in San Francisco. She definitely wouldn¿t have left in a temper to drive up the northern California coast. And most important, she wouldn¿t have stopped at the obscure Bed and Breakfast called Wimberly Place. The inn is full. Grace persuades the owner, Wilbur Wimberly, to rent her a room that is being renovated. After a long walk along the rocky coast, she returns to find a naked body in her bed.
