Sorrel Martin and Penelope Greene head off to the Parker-Martin family reunion with Sorrel’s younger brother, Bradley, where Penelope gets introduced to the extended family. However, as everyone is getting ready to leave after the last day of the reunion, the patriarch of the Parker family is found dead. Signs point at first to it being a suicide, but that theory quickly gets pushed aside when Penelope learns that Marvin had a broken leg, which makes it very implausible that he got himself up into a tree, the way he was found. With all the animosity between the Parker family members, the list of suspects seems to keep growing by the minute.
When Sorrel is named in the will unexpectedly, it throws a new wrench into the system; Bradley and Penelope fear for Sorrel’s safety. Can they trick the real killer into revealing himself or herself? Or have they taken one chance too many?
