One Last DanceA shocking murder forces a family to come to terms with its past
Each of Lydia Seagrave’s daughters is unhappy in her own way. Although a successful novelist, Daphne is professionally stunted and bored with her doctor husband. Her sister Kitty, the owner of a small California tea room, feels empty without a child. And Alex, the youngest, is a recent divorcée who is having trouble just paying her rent. When the three girls return home for their parents’ fortieth wedding anniversary, they hardly expect to be confronted with murder. Their father is dead, and Lydia was found with the smoking gun. As she goes on trial the three sisters struggle to solve the mystery of why their mother, a seemingly devoted wife, would murder their father in cold blood, uncovering family secrets that threaten to tear them all apart and confronting their own unhappiness along the way. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
