Secrets at the manor! Can Julia solve a murder at her family's garden party before the past destroys her future?

When Julia South receives an invitation to a lavish garden party at her estranged father's manor, she expects an awkward family reunion, not murder. But the celebration takes a deadly turn when a guest is flung from an upstairs window. With rumours swirling, all eyes turn to Julia to investigate.

She finds herself embroiled in family drama, navigating a blossoming romance with Detective Inspector Barker Brown, and puzzling over her young lodger Jessie's strange sleepwalking. Determined to uncover the truth, Julia pursues every clue, uncovering secrets that could destroy her family.

To crack the case before the killer strikes again, Julia must untangle a web of lies and deceit. But with members of her own family under suspicion, will she uncover a truth too painful to accept?
