Though she prefers to remain home, septuagenarian Henrie O recovers from pneumonia at a beautiful Bermuda resort. Actually Henrie accompanies her two grandchildren at the request of her daughter as they attend their father's wedding to the beautiful but needy Connor.
The bridegroom Lloyd Drake looks forward to his second marriage festivities. Unfortunately his oldest child Diana dislikes Connor's selfish nature. His other daughter Marlow believes her dad should not marry the flirty Connor who craves other male companionship. However, neither one seems capable of actually harming or even frightening Connor to death, but someone appears to desire that to happen. Henrie begins making her own inquiries.
A tired still ailing Henrie O has more energy than the average preteen, which is part of her charm. Carolyn Hart's heroine is spry, keen, and independent with a mind as sharp as ever and the guts of Rocky (without the punch drunkenness). In her latest tale, RESORT TO MURDER, she scores again as she turns the multi-layered plot into one of the author's greatest triumphs.
