Go Lovely Rose


Author: Jean Potts
GO, LOVELY ROSE They find Mrs. Henshaw at the bottom of the cellar stairs with her neck broken. Everyone assumes she has fallen. But when Rose s sister appears on the scene, she immediately begins to cry murder. And she s right! Young Hartley is the obvious suspect. Mrs. Henshaw had been his and his sister Rachel s housekeeper for many years, and there was no love lost between any of them. In fact, no one in town really liked Rose Henshaw. Her ex-husband, Francie, certainly knew how evil she could be she ruined his life. The rest of them were simply afraid of her: young Dr. Craig, the newcomer in town; and Bix, Hartley s teenage girlfriend; her father, Hugh Bovard, editor of the local paper; and his shattered wife, Althea, still mourning the loss of her son. They all hated Rose Henshaw for one reason or another but who hated her enough to push her down the stairs? THE EVIL WISH Ever since Marcia and Lucy were little girls, they would hide in the basement of their brownstone and listen in on their father s conversations. But now they are in their 30s, still living with their domineering father, and one day they eavesdrop on a very portentous revelation. Their widowed father intends to marry his secretary, give her all his money, and let her kick his daughters out of their house. In their anger and outrage, Marcia and Lucy hatch a plot to murder him. When their father and his secretary are involved in a fatal car crash, their plans prove unnecessary. But what are they to do with their murder scheme and the residual guilt particularly when the aborted plot develops a life of its own?
