New Smyrna Beach Is About To Be Hit By An Unnatural Disaster. The DAFFODILS Are Back! Penny Sue, Ruthie and Leigh-the DAFFODILS* (*Divorced And Finally Free Of Deceitful, Insensitive, Licentious Scum)-are Southern belles with attitudes and a knack for getting into trouble. Whenever these three middle-aged sorority sisters get together chaos is sure to descend on the quaint seaside town of New Smyrna Beach. And it's no different for the Founder's Day celebration where the featured event is a debate on which Florida city was discovered first-New Smyrna or St. Augustine. The New Smyrna advocate is Penny Sue's cousin Kevin, a renowned historian, and the opponent is his former lover, Abby, an award-winning Central Florida expert. With real estate/tourism money at stake and bets flying, you have the frenzy of a horse race and the ingredients for murder. How could a debate turn into a brawl? How does one of the scholars end up dead in the library stacks? Make no mistake, these fine Southern ladies are not the cause of all the trouble, bedlam just seems to follow them. But this debate is no game and the DAFFODILS must find the murderer before someone else is pushing up daisies.
