Death and Taxes on : Heather goes away on a business trip, hoping to attract new customers with Josephine’s delicious desserts, but instead, she finds another dead body. Moreover, this is a man that she herself wished death on… So who killed the old accountant, and will the uncanny resemblance to a famous story by Agatha Christie help or hinder the investigation?
As usually in Dolphin Cove, things get complicated, old and new faces get involved, food and drinks are consumed. But most importantly, will Heather, Josephine and James discover the murderer before it’s too late?
“Heather relaxed her back. The remaining guests started to form a queue to the check-in desk. All of them locals, and hence, much more casual in their attire.
Well, except one.
Heather cringed and turned away to avoid meeting the gaze of a suit-clad elderly man, who had just shuffled from the entrance and joined the back of the line. Charles Pritchard, Heather’s savior-cum-worst-nightmare, a semi-retired accountant. He had been helping her with a recent audit from the tax office, driving her nuts with his billions of questions over every number in the book, fussing over “4s” that looked like “1s”, and “1s” that looked like “7s”, and God knows what other sins.
Heather turned away, watching the young man in green overalls load her cooler bags and probably other refreshments on board.
She’d check in last. Anything to avoid having a conversation with Charles.
“Good morning, ladies and gentlemen,” the girl at the check-in desk said through her microphone. “We are now boarding the chartered flight around the Bay of Islands, Far North and back.”
