Teddi is determined to protect the elderly neighbor who took her in after she lost her parents in this fast-paced mystery from Edgar Award­–winning author Willo Davis Roberts.

Teddi has recently been orphaned and she now lives with her kindly, older next door neighbor, Mamie. The times they share and the safety Teddi feels are precious. Then trouble appears in the form of Dora, Mamie’s daughter-in-law. Not only did Mamie not know that Dora was expecting a baby, she didn’t even know that her recently dead son had been married. Something seems out of sync and Teddi is determined to find out why.
