It is 1920, and Millicent Cavendish is hosting a weekend house party. Still newly-married, she’s trying to run a household efficiently, and showing that she’s no longer the frivolous and thoughtless party-goer she had been. She’s hoping that the house party will be a success and help her throw off her old image.
Maybe all would have been well, but one of the guests is murdered. Millicent decides that she needs to resolve things before the police arrive.
Frequently thought of as air-headed, Millicent has to solve the murder, ensure the house party is a success despite one of the guests expiring, prepare the household for Christmas, and run the household efficiently.
What could be easier than that?
