Don't Cry Over Spilt Wine

Liz Eagle

Lil Starling and husband Joe receive an invitation from her best childhood friend to go back to her hometown of Warsaw, NY to receive accolades for solving a fifty-one-year-old murder. Simultaneously, her friend, Federal Judge Stone, informs Lil that several federal inmates could be released from federal prison on a technicality. The technicality spawned appeals that stemmed from the prosecuting attorney that threatened Lil and Joe. She was about to be convicted. The attorney's clients are now appealing based on her upcoming conviction. One inmate, if released, scares Lil the most. She vows to the judge to do whatever is necessary to keep that prisoner locked up. During their investigation to obtain more criminal behavior on this inmate, Lil and Joe find themselves at Lil's alma mater, Elmira College in Elmira, NY. There, she is reunited with her dearest friends, causing them to relive two unsolved murders that took place their senior year (1977-78). Lil and Joe are now involved in two priorities: preventing the release of the inmate and solving another set of murders. With limited time and several deadly threats against them, Lil must forgo any struggle with insecurities and regrets. She realizes that people from the past and present are connected, but not in the ways she ever imagined.
