The League of Literary Ladies is currently enjoying Margaret Mitchell's saga of the South, Gone with the Wind. But there's one situation on South Bass Island that they wish would simply blow over. Kidnapped as teenagers, the children of a famous movie star are now media darlings after a miraculous escape. What's next for the celebrity twins? They're opening an over-the-top B and B called Tara on South Bass Island, and frankly, they don't give a damn about the competition, including Bea Cartwright's own beloved inn. The other members of the League, Chandra, Kate, and Luella, are turning scarlet. But when local realtor Vivian Frisk is found murdered, and the suspects include Chandra, who lost her beau to the frisky Vivian, the Ladies rally to her defense. They may have to skim a few chapters of the Civil War soap opera and focus on bringing justice to the island they call home.
