Product description


"Smith gives readers a lovely comedy with poise."
--Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover

Old alliances and old rivalries quickly surface when the four Barrett sisters -- in order to inherit and sell the valuable property -- must spend the entire summer with each other at the beloved lake of their childhood summers. But the sisters get far more than they bargained for: One will find love, and all four will gain new understanding of their late, self-absorbed grandmother . . . and they'll find two mummified dead bodies walled up in the root cellar -- one in a WWI doughboy's uniform.

Of course, each sister has her own way of dealing with the discovery -- from calling the police to getting rid of the bodies so the sale can proceed. As a compromise, Andromeda Strain meets "I Love Lucy" when the sisters carefully transfer the bodies into decorated heavy-mill Christmas tree bags (the closest they could get to body bags) then deposit them on a remote park bench and call the cops with an anonymous tip. Things take a turn for the bizarre when the police arrive to find the corpses stuffed in dancing Santa bags tied with big red bows.
