Catering sisters Bernie and Libby Simmons are helping put on an elaborate tea party for an opening night gala fundraiser. It's quite a to-do for the quaint town of Longely, New York, especially when the billionaire behind the event drops dead . . . Everyone in Longely is talking about Blue House, an art complex that will bring the town a theater, an art gallery, and even a restaurant and coffee bar. But they re less than enthusiastic about Ludvoc Zeb Zalinsky, the self-made billionaire who's funding the complex and rubbing everyone the wrong way. Just when it seems the Alice in Wonderland themed tea party is going according to plan, Zeb lifts an electric tea kettle, clutches his chest, and falls to the floor. It doesn t take long for police to decide that this seemingly random accident was actually cold-blooded murder . . . As Bernie and Libby set out to find the culprit, they realize Zeb might have had more enemies than money. With so many possible culprits to sort through, only one thing is clear: Zeb was poured a steaming cup of revenge and a second serving may be on the menu . . .
