"I, Lilly Rose Cleary, have a nearly endless capacity for driving myself crazy." And who knows a woman better than herself? Especially a woman like Lilly, a tough-as-nails partner working in a Sarasota, Florida, law firm representing fat-cat physicians in malpractice cases. Lilly is also an obsessive-compulsive health nut who has a bad habit of tripping over dead bodies.
After successfully representing a client in a kayak whiplash case, she becomes a victim herself when she's ambushed at her office door. The following day a client turns up dead from an apparent poisoning. As if that isn't enough to tax Lilly's chronic state of anxiety, her sometime boyfriend -- an attorney in search of the perfect class-action suit -- moves in and promptly begins to drive Lilly nuts.
Amid the chaos, Lilly tries to figure out why she's in this mess. Who would want to attack a tofu-eating attorney? And why? Joined by a colorful cast of characters, including a bridge-diving rottweiler and a lay minister who runs a U-pick opium poppy farm, Lilly has a mostunorthodox -- and hilarious -- way of finding out.
