Show synopsis Dealing with the first anniversary of her husband's death would be much easier for Whiskey Mattimoe if the newly-crowned Miss Blossom wasn't scheduled to die on the very same day. It seems everybody in Magnet Springs knew about the not-so-secret curse of the Miss Blossom pageant except for Whiskey-full-time real estate agent, part-time sleuth, long-suffering owner of Abra, her willful and sometimes felonious Afghan hound, and reluctant guardian for the soon-be-deceased Miss Blossom. Any hope that Abra has reformed her purse-snatching ways is dashed when the dog disappears with the emerald-laden Miss Blossom tiara, a priceless--albeit horrendously ugly and gawdy--heirloom insured for more than Whiskey's net worth. Suddenly Whiskey finds herself tangled in a web of deceit and murder that spans centuries and involves her dearly departed husband, for better or worse. When the new Miss Blossom lands in the hospital and the former Miss Blossom turns up dead, Whiskey's got to catch a cold-blooded killer before another generation of Magnet Springs' royalty succumbs to a fate worse than wearing the Miss Blossom tiara.
