You can take her out of the country, but you can't deprive Dorothy Martin of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings, even in merry old England. So this expatriate Hoosier is preparing a feast -- and, naturally, it wouldn't be a challenge without a crisis or two.
A retired teacher, Dorothy gets her first serving of trouble when she fills in for a missing teacher at the local school. When it turns out that the woman is now the prime suspect in the murder of her husband, Dorothy takes in the couple's young daughter for dinner.
The victim was a cruel man who used his warped view of faith to torment anyone in his path. His death was really a blessing for his wife and daughter -- but did one of them kill him? The answer leads Dorothy to secrets and lies, and into the cold heart of an evil man, and the surprising face of a killer.
