Nancy’s bridge club meets every Wednesday at one o’clock. They play serious bridge until one team has won two out of three rubbers. Then they share an hour or two of delicious, coffee-flavoured tidbits. As Nancy reminisces about their conversations, she weaves in details about her past life, her husband's death, her tenants, and her day-to-day activities.
When Nancy’s late husband, Daniel, turned their garage into an apartment, he couldn’t have known that Nancy would have to deal with a tenant who used an alias, and paid his rent with stolen money. Nor that the men the tenant had double-crossed would come looking for what was left of that money.
When Louise rented the apartment, she could never have guessed what agreeing to take care of the previous tenant’s cat would lead to.
And Kevin knew a lot more than either of them before he rented the apartment.
