Who could resist an antebellum mansion by such a name? Not Ariel. She's there to write the family history for her great-aunt. Elderly Aunt Belle still runs the place without electricity, determined to keep it exactly as it was before "The War."
One of Belle's two bachelor great-nephews will inherit the plantation, but only if they keep it the way Belle wishes, right down to marrying the wife she picks. And the wife Belle has picked out for Chad, her favorite, is the adored and mysterious Gloria Ratherwood. Ariel hates her on sight and the battle for Serenade is on.
Ariel has an unexpected ally, a lovely woman in a long gray dress, and someone leaves four leaf clovers where only Ariel will find them. Clearly, someone wishes her luck and she's going to need it, because at least one person there is bent on murder.
