Renie and Judith plan on spending a weekend at the Grover family's rustic cabin. Alot of maintenance is needed, and the girls are looking forward to spending time at a place where there are many fond childhood memories. While going for water, they visit with a neighbor, the famous artist, Riley Tobias. Soon after they leave, Tobias is found strangled. Renie and Judith now have to add another task to their weekend, finding a murderer. The characters in this mystery are very well drawn and colorful. The mystery was easy to solve, but I had such a good time reading it, I didn't care.
