"Benni's taking time from her curator's job at the folk-art museum to sponsor a "senior prom" - with a Mardi Gras theme - at San Celina's retirement home. She hopes Police Chief Gabe Ortiz can get away from his job for at least one dance. But instead she ends up waltzing with Clay O'Hara, the Colorado cowboy she had a crush on when she was seventeen. Benni also finds herself refereeing an argument involving Clays' curmudgeonly uncle. Both events have unforeseen consequences when Benni later walks into a resident's room and finds the murdered bodies of an elderly spinster and Clays' uncle." "Gabe warns Benni to stay out of the investigation and away from Clay O'Hara who is a suspect in the killings. Those are fighting words for a woman like Benni. She's determined to see whomever she wishes - and to look for patterns in the backgrounds of the two victims. The zigs and zags of their long lives lead to a common thread - a past where secrets of love and passion were nearly forgotten. But like links in a chain, the truth has held together across the years. Unraveling it could reveal Benni's own vulnerabilities and true feelings - or put her face-to-face with a murderer's twisted heart."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Meet Benni Harper...a spirited ex-cowgirl, quilter, and folk-art expert who's staking out her own corner of the contemporary American West. She's got an eye for murderous designs—and a talent for piecing together the most complex and cold-blooded crimes.

Benni's taking time from her job at the folk-art museum to sponsor a "senior prom" at San Celina's retirement home. During the dance, she's surprised to find herself waltzing with Clay O'Hara, the Colorado cowboy she had a crush on when she was seventeen. She's even more surprised when Clay's uncle and an elderly woman are found dead in one of the residents' rooms. Now Benni's trying to find a link between the two victims—and the common thread that bound them together in death...
