Shakespeare, Arkansas, is the town in which Lily Bard, a housecleaner, lives. This is the fifth book in the series (A Lily Bard Mystery). In this book, the reader is finally told about the kidnapping trauma that Lily experienced when younger. To handle the feelings that are still below the surface (and which are starting to show in her relationship with her husband), she joins a therapy group. One night, she arrives to find the door locked. When Lily and other members of the group finally get in, they find a dead woman, a concussed friend, and a frightened therapist. And, there the mystery begins. Who killed this woman and displayed her in the therapist's office and why?

Ms. Harris has dealt with a dark subject (rape) in a respectful way and still has written a book that is cozy and fun to read. Her characters feel real because she lets the reader see their flaws and yet gives a feeling that this could be a neighbor, a minister or a friend in our own town. The solution to the mystery was predicted by one of the cops but, as a reader, I was just as surprised as Lily at the end.
