Investigating the death of the San Celina Senior Citizen Prom king, museum curator Benni Harper goes against the wishes of her police chief boyfriend and uncovers the victim's fifty-year-old affiliation with a World War II Japanese blackmailing ring

Blackwell North Amer
Benni's taking time from her curator's job at the folk-art museum to sponsor a "senior prom" - with a Mardi Gras theme - at San Celina's retirement home. She hopes Police Chief Gabe Ortiz can get away from his job for at least one dance. But instead she ends up waltzing with Clay O'Hara, the Colorado cowboy she had a crush on when she was seventeen. Benni also finds herself refereeing an argument involving Clays' curmudgeonly uncle. Both events have unforeseen consequences when Benni later walks into a resident's room and finds the murdered bodies of an elderly spinster and Clays' uncle.
Gabe warns Benni to stay out of the investigation and away from Clay O'Hara who is a suspect in the killings. Those are fighting words for a woman like Benni. She's determined to see whomever she wishes - and to look for patterns in the backgrounds of the two victims. The zigs and zags of their long lives lead to a common thread - a past where secrets of love and passion were nearly forgotten. But like links in a chain, the truth has held together across the years. Unraveling it could reveal Benni's own vulnerabilities and true feelings - or put her face-to-face with a murderer's twisted heart.

I have read all of Earlene Fowler's books. Easy, fun, clean, yet just enough suspense.
