After a busy summer, Judith McMonigle Flynn, owner of Seattle's popular Hillside Manor B&B, desperately needs some R&R. Leave it to her thoughtful husband, Joe, to surprise her with a trip to the Canadian Rockies. Thrilled to be getting away, Judith is overjoyed when Cousin Renie and Bill agree to join them. Although the two husbands made the arrangements, how bad can a short time away in the beautiful mountains be? Judith and Renie are about to find out While the accommodations certainly leave something to be desired, the other guests are the real prize. They've gathered on the mountainside to give a relative a proper and permanent send-off--a nice gesture--that is, until Judith realizes that paying their respects might be a little premature...without some very sinister assistance. Now it's up to her and Renie to save a would-be corpse from an early date with the undertaker.
