Picture this: a night at the local theater ends in tragedy when the director, Richard Rose, turns up dead. Now, if you think Abby's just going to sit back and let the mystery unfold without getting her hands dirty, think again!

Armed with determination and a whole lot of flower power, Abby sets out to unravel the truth. But here's the twist – the town's buzzing with rumors of a cursed theater – and Abby's not buying it.
