Bingo, bridge-and a dead body in the church sanctuary? Life in this small Southern town just got ugly . . . and exciting! No one in Bradley, North Carolina, is exactly crying into their sweet tea over the murder of Parke Stockard. Certainly not retired schoolteacher Myrtle Clover. Upon discovering the corpse, Myrtle is struck-not with grief, but a brilliant idea! Solving the crime would prove to everyone (especially her son Red, the police chief) that this eighty-something-year-old is not ready to be put out to pasture just yet. The victim, a pretty but pushy town developer, had deep pockets and few friends. Myrtle can't throw one of her gaudy garden gnomes without hitting a potential suspect. Even when another murder takes place, proud Myrtle forges on, armed only with a heavy cane, a venomous tongue, and a widower sidekick.

Veda Rogers grew up in Quenemo, Kansas, married her childhood sweetheart, and they went on to establish Vassar Playhouse near their hometown. Located at Pomona Lake 35 miles south of Topeka, they ran the theatre sixteen seasons beginning in 1970. Veda has more in common with Ginger Rogers than their roles of Dolly Levi; Veda's father-in-law, John Rogers, was Ginger's stepfather, "Daddy John." He helped to get Ginger started in her career, managing her Vaudeville tour for two years, 1926–1927. This book is Veda's story—the story of Vassar Playhouse—her family, the players, their griefs and their joys. But—because of her husband, Bruce, Ginger also plays a part. This story is for anyone who has ever put his/her feet on stage. Curtain Everyone!
