|Plot Summary of Murder on the Candlelight Tour|
|"Set at Christmas on the Olde Wilmington by Candlelight tour, the mystery features Ashley Wilkes, a historic preservationist, and her sister Melanie, a realtor. (Mama was besotted with Gone With The Wind.) It's a dream come true for Ashley; her restored Victorian house is on the tour. But the dream turns nightmarish when a docent is murdered in the library, and history professor Binkie Higgins is the likely suspect. As the bodies drop faster than dead needles off a dry Christmas tree, Ashley's as busy as Santa's elves: proving Binkie's innocence, rescuing sister Melanie and a historic property from a ruthless developer. And also solving the Atlantic Coast Line's 40-year-old payroll robbery.
