When Zeffie Got a Clue

WaterBrook Press (March 18, 2008)


Peggy Darty


Peggy Darty is the award-winning author of twenty-seven books, including two other cozy mysteries set in Summer Breeze, Florida: When the Sandpiper Calls and When Bobbie Sang the Blues. She has worked in film, researched for CBS, and led writing workshops around the country. Darty and her husband call Alabama home but spend a great deal of time in Colorado, Montana, and on Florida’s Emerald Coast.


It’s an ordinary afternoon in Summer Breeze, Florida, when a young, wide-eyed girl steps into I Saw It First, the trash-to-treasure shop Christy Castleman and her Aunt Bobbie have opened. Clutching a jewelry box, Zeffie Adams tells Christy she needs money to pay her grandmother’s medical bills, prompting Christy to offer this curious visitor more than the jewelry box is worth–or so she thinks.

But complicated questions form when Christy rips out the box’s lining and uncovers a clue to a cold case murder mystery from eight years ago. Despite warnings from her family and handsome boyfriend Dan Brockman, Christy decides to do a little detective work of her own. After all, the infamous murder happened close to her grandmother’s farm. How risky could it be to take the jewelry box back to the Strickland plantation and ask around about it?

Soon Christy finds there is more to the small box than someone wants her to know. A jewelry theft. A mansion murder. Dangerous family secrets buried in history. Can Christy convince others to let go of the past before it’s too late?

I loved Charlie's Angels. Remember when we used to watch them and thought they were so cool!!!

Definitely Jessica Fletcher. Charlie's Angels were too "fluffy" (for want of a better word). Miss Marple was too much hard work for a relaxing night in front of the TV. Jessica Fletcher was just right and I always finished the show with a smile on my face - that and I just love Angela Lansbury's voice, especially in Beauty and the Beast (animated).

Sounds like an intriguing story!

For my entry into the draw I'm going to go with Jessica Fletcher. I have enjoyed some Miss Marple shows lately on the ABC and I do enjoy a little trip to Miss Marple's in Sassafrass... but I just loved Murder, She Wrote. Loved it.

Miss Marple!

I enjoy a good mystery so either Jessica Fletcher or Miss Marple. Charlies Angels is just to over the top to really enjoy, although a boss you never see sounds pretty good Please enter me, Thanks Louise Veenstra

I always liked Murder she wrote. Haven't really watched Miss Marple and can't say I enjoyed the Charlie's Angels movies although I didn't mind the original TV series Wendyb
