This was the time of the year that Baxter and I had usually vacationed somewhere cool, and I would certainly enjoy playing bridge and learning from a master teacher, as Basil Dumont apparently was. ‘‘I’ll go,’’ Sophie said. I echoed her words. Paula’s triumphant smile made me a bit uneasy for some reason, and I suddenly flashed on that bit of conversation Sophie and I overheard when we first arrived. She must have been talking about her current husband, Avery Trowbridge. I relaxed. If Avery wasn’t going to be at the bridge retreat, there was no point in worrying over whether Paula would make good on her threat.

You wouldn’t be here if Basil weren’t here. ’’ He threw back his head and laughed. ‘‘Stop being a jackass, Avery,’’ Paula said. Avery sobered.

He opened Marylou’s door and escorted her through the rain to the porch before coming back for Sophie.
