Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Weep No More, My Lady

Elizabeth (LaSalle) Lange is invited to visit old friends at their spa in California. Stressed and saddened by the upcoming trial of her sister's murderer, she hesitantly accepts mostly due to her desire to see an old friend at the spa who says she has information about her sister's death. Shortly after her arrival, Elizabeth is confronted not only by her sister's alleged killer, but the entire fickle, embittered group of "friends" that seem to feel Elizabeth is a threat, particularly once she starts to doubt her firm belief that the killer is who she thought him to be and begins an investigation of her own that leads to more death and emotional anguish as she gets closer to the truth...and puts herself in danger trying to discover who took the life of her sister.
