Darci Shelton finds an old cookie tin buried in the cellar under her flower shop and can’t stop wondering why it was hidden there in the first place. More questions arise when she goes through the contents.
What possible significance could some faded pictures and a straggling key hold? Between her floral business and a campaign party at Clydell Manor, Darci already has more than enough to worry about before weird things start happening at the shop. The key keeps vanishing, she’s nearly strangled by her own necklace, and the computer crashes after a mysterious message appears on the screen. Miss Addie might act up on occasion, but the resident ghost’s antics are never malicious. With Halloween coming up, she figures someone might be playing an elaborate prank, and hopes the crooks responsible for a string of local burglaries don’t have their sights set on Petal Pushers.
Just when it looks like her questions are doomed to go unanswered, Darci discovers a secret that somebody intends to keep hidden . . . by any means necessary.
