There’s something fishy in Little Tatterford. Can Sibyl solve the murder and make a snapper comeback?
There hasn’t been a murder in weeks, so Sibyl and her eccentric friends, Cressida Upthorpe and Mr. Buttons, are able to scale back their anxiety. Honeymooners, a famous businessman and his wife, book in to start their married life in bliss. After a breakfast of prawns, a tragic accident befalls one of them and they end up battered. The authorities, herring rumors, want to shut down the boarding house for safety reasons.
The police believe the husband was the target but are all at sea. The protesters rally against the husband’s company, which is destroying the local wilderness land. Will he rise to the bait?
What with Blake’s ex-girlfriend coming back to town, and a rival boarding house opening up nearby, can Sibyl keep a cool head, reel in the suspects, and save the boarding house from the authorities?
