Spending time with her sons means everything to Dotsy Lamb. She just wishes it did not have to include her ex-husband Chet and his wife Stephanie.

Even though he is willing help, Marco Quattrocchi’s job is keeping him in Florence. Only a phone call away, he will offer Dotsy whatever advice he can.

With the Matterhorn as a backdrop, the beauty of Chalet Merz is unmistakable, yet there is definitely something very unsettling going on here. Besides staying in the same home as her ex-husband, Dotsy is now embroiled in a double murder investigation. The clues are few and far between, but what keeps popping up makes no sense at all. She needs to find some answers and soon, or she could very well be on the receiving end of a police investigation.

With so many unrelated events happening at once, I find this story has very little cohesion. I also felt no real connection to the characters or their relationships with each other. Dotsy’s talent lies in her world-class nosiness, and picking apart random clues, yet she is as stumped as the police. As this story draws to conclusion, it is my opinion that very little changes to increase the level of suspense or excitement.
