Summary:Six people reunite to remember beautiful Rosemary Barton, who died nearly a year before. The loving sister, the long-suffering husband, the devoted secretary, the lovers, the betrayed wife - none of them can forget Rosemary.
But did one of them murder her?
The characters were all likeable, but I have to say that the women were all very flighty and stereotypical. The one woman who is efficient and intelligent—-aka, the one woman of the book I was rooting for— is of course up to no good. But the male leads were of varying personalities, and I enjoyed hearing them work to solve the crime. One of the only drawbacks were the sheer number of male leads. I admit I got a couple of them confused at the end.
