Set in contemporary Santa Cruz, Wit's End opens as Rima Lanisell arrives at her godmother's old Victorian mansion, weary from her recent losses - an inventive if at times irritating father, a beloved brother. (Indeed, Rima seems to loose things habitually - sunglasses and keys, lovers and family members.) At loose ends, she has come to coastal California to regroup and to meet that legendary godmother. She soon finds herself enmeshed in a household of eccentrics: a formerly alcoholic cook and her irksome son, two quirky dog walkers, a mysterious stalker, and of course, godmother Addison Early, a secretive and feisty bestselling mystery writer who once knew Rima's father well. Rima is on a mission to discover just what the relationship was all about.
