Murder strikes in the home of Carnegie's soon to be father-in-law (Owen), when his caretaker is knifed in the back. The problem is that it appears not only is Carnegie the person who finds the body in a cemetery but she might have been the last person to see him alive. Through a number of humorous situations Carnegie suspects Owen's uppity daughters, a local waitress, the bickering raciest Norwegian couple and even the local law enforcement.

When a second dead body shows up with a seeming connection to Carnegie she is taken to jail for questioning. Lily's fiancé is called in and finally someone will listen to Lily about what is happening. In the end Lily stumbles across the actual killer.
