Annie and Max Darling have just moved into their new home. They have a lot of interesting neighbors, especially Sydney Cahill who goes after every man she meets, including Max. Annie is not too interested in going to Sydney's Valentine party, but Max's mother comes to visit and decides that it would be great fun for the three of them to attend the party. When Sydney turns up murdered, there are no lack of suspects since she was involved with most of the neighborhood men and there are many jealous wives. Annie and Max check into their neighbor's backgrounds and discover even more motives. They are totally confused until Max's mother Laurel calls Annie's hand by inviting all of the neighbors to a meeting so that Annie can unveil the murderer's identity. Annie has no idea who committed the murder until she hears some of Laurel's conclusions during the meeting. Finally, Annie confronts the murderer and puts Laurel's life in danger as a consequence. This is another good cozy from the reliable Carolyn Hart.
