Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 073871092X, Paperback)When a man goes up the Ferris wheel very much alive, but comes down dead, local small-town police suspect a heart attack. But one person is calling it foul play, a Miss Marjorie McClelland, full-time mystery writer/part-time sleuth. In 1935, Depression-era Connecticut, Marjorie's dogged determination and independence is a breath of fresh air to some, and a source of consternation for others.
Marjorie's fianc?, an achingly handsome police detective, wishes she'd just stay home and act a little more ladylike. Undeterred, blonde and lovely Marjorie charms her way into what becomes a full-scale murder investigation. But not without the maddening assistance of a bored, yet altruistic, millionaire, Creighton Ashcroft, who, when he's not swapping barbs with Marjorie, tries to impress her by doing a bit of aristocratic snooping on his own.

Going against the Depression-era etiquette for young ladies, mystery writer Marjorie McClelland secretly hops on board another murder investigation. While the case unfolds, Marjorie faces another dilemma. Should she marry the reliable, if dull, police detective . . . or is she ready to risk security for passion?
