Murder on the Candlelight Tour Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Murder on the Candlelight Tour

Set at Christmas on the Olde Wilmington by Candlelight tour, the mystery features Ashley Wilkes, a historic preservationist, and her sister Melanie, a realtor. (Mama was besotted with Gone With The Wind.) It's a dream come true for Ashley; her restored Victorian house is on the tour. But the dream turns nightmarish when a docent is murdered in the library, and history professor Binkie Higgins is the likely suspect. As the bodies drop faster than dead needles off a dry Christmas tree, Ashley's as busy as Santa's elves: proving Binkie's innocence, rescuing sister Melanie and a historic property from a ruthless developer. And also solving the Atlantic Coast Line's 40-year-old payroll robbery.
