Anastasia Pollack's dead louse of a spouse has left her with more bills than you can shake a crochet hook at, and teaching craft classes at her mother-in-law's assisted living center seems like a harmless way to supplement her meager income. But when Lyndella Wegner--a 98-year-old know-it-all with a penchant for ruffles and lace--is murdered, Anastasia's cantankerous mother-in-law becomes the prime suspect. Upon discovering that Lyndella's X-rated craft projects--and her scandalous behavior--made her plenty of enemies, Anastasia sets out to find the real killer before her mother-in-law ends up behind bars.
