Ladies-Only Murder Mystery – Killer Apprehended!

Another murder mystery was concluded on Friday, August 8th, 2014. The ladies-only investigation began at 6:30 and ended three hours later with the arrest of the murderer. Justice prevails once again!

Murder among the nouveau richeIt was the quarterly meeting of the Gazillionaire Girls Group, an exclusive club whose membership is comprised of successful women who made it big without relying upon the other gender. The hostess for this unique gathering was entertainment guru Bertha Brothert. Her upscale line of products appeals to the nouveau riche.

Brothert’s yacht, ‘The Perfection’ was the scene of the meeting. A special guest was present to entertain the Group’s members and to predict their futures. Famed fortuneteller Madame Magda pulled out her crystal ball and told the assembled clique of distinguished daughters of destiny that many good things await them.

Suddenly, a shocked expression crossed the mystic’s face as she shuddered in horror. The crystal ball, she proclaimed, was emphatic in predicting that someone would soon die.

The next morning, true to her words, a body was found floating nearby the yacht. It was Madame Magda herself who was the victim!

A large group of distinguished and well-dressed women arrived to assist in the murder investigation. With ten suspects and five other characters to question, they had their work cut out for them. But first, to fortify the ladies for their daunting task, they first dined on Cordon Bleu, bacon wrapped green beans, salad, and for dessert, peaches and blueberry crisp.

After dinner, interrogations began in earnest. Everyone tried their best to extract the most information from each suspect, hoping for a slip-up that might reveal the killer. Additional information was provided by the Crime Lab and the Coroner.

After intense questioning, each of the suspects was considered. Motive, Means and Opportunity were examined. Some suspects were identified as very likely to have committed the murder. Others were eliminated by their alibis, or being ‘too obvious’ a suspect.

At last, the murderer was revealed, handcuffed and presented with a ‘Bad Kitty’ scented soap. The investigators also voted on the Best Dressed Lady of the evening, and she was presented with a gaudy bauble, a genuine diamondoid of over 200 carats.

Melanie and Perry thoroughly enjoyed hosting this special ladies-only murder mystery. Watch this page for details on future Murder Mysteries at Silver Heart Inn. You can conveniently purchase tickets online, or by phone. If you’ve never been to one of our Murder Mysteries, here’s what to expect.

Ladies-Only Murder Mystery

Second Murderer Apprehended!

Our second murder mystery took place on Saturday, January 25th.  Held entirely within the Silver Heart Inn, the murderer was apprehended in three hours.


It was 1937, a time of great achievement, great danger, and great uncertainty.  Industrialist Peter Petulant was mudered aboard his streamlined train, the Petulant Express, underway somewhere outside of Akron, OH.  The Inspector brought together the sleuths for assistance in solving the crime.

After dinner in the club car (including a birthday celebration), sleuthing teams questioned the suspects for clues.  Was it the obnoxious German brewer, the demure English mystery writer, the blustry southern senator, young Norwegian figure skater, the brash Aussie croc hunter, mysterious Italian opera singer, rotund baseball star or the flamboyant fashion designer??  Everyone had secrets, and some of those secrets, once revealed, could help solve the murder.

At the final gathering, the Inspector revealed the murderer.  One sleuth had deduced ‘who done it’ and was rewarded with a gift certificate.  The suspect with the best costume was similarly rewarded.  All guests left with a Silver Heart Inn keepsake wine glass.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in this wonderful event, and to Debra for making mystery magic once again.  Watch this blog and Facebook for information on the next adventure.

The Murderer has been Caught!

From our first Murder Mystery Weekend,

October 11-12, 2013

What excitement, what fun! A fabulous weekend event on the most perfect fall weekend.  The weather was gorgeous and we were ready to deduce the murderer in our first ever Murder Mystery.

Friday Night – Meet the Suspects

The guests and suspects arrived as arranged by the Inspector to recount their testimonies for the sleuths on Friday night at the Cork and Barrel.  While we sipped on the celebrated vintage of the Melee Winery, each in turn recalled their memories of the party the evening before the body was found.  All emotions ran high, some seemingly disturbed by the news of the body found at the bottom of the winery basement stairs, other callous comments seemed incriminating.  Could it have been an accident?  The Inspector thought not!  Who did it if it was foul play?  A solemn tone had been set as we all left with the Inspector’s warning lingering in our ears, “You won’t get away with this.  One of you is guilty!”

Saturday Morning – Interrogations

All were once again gathered at the request of the Inspector on Saturday morning.  Information had been discovered overnight.  We could tell she had her own suspicions by the way that she eyed each suspect.  She asked for our help, and told us where to find the suspects in their regular haunts on a Saturday.  But this would not be just any ordinary Saturday, they would be questioned.  Maybe a little slip or perhaps an unintended comment about another suspect would prove helpful in flushing out the guilty party.  Someone was hiding something.  The plot thickened after each suspect was located on the Square or in the Englewood Arts District.  Little insidious connections became evident.

Saturday Afternoon – Snacks & More Questions

Food Spread
By noon we agreed to meet at the Silver Heart Inn B&B for a bit of hard earned refreshment and some time to share our clues with others.  This was no simple murder mystery.  The coroners report held a few clues.  It was more challenging than we thought!  As we sipped on our mulled cider, nibbled cinnamon doughnuts and caramel apple bites, each testimony revealed more twists, turns and conflicting information.  Questions came rapid fire, we were deep into the excitement of solving the crime.  Sleuths headed back out for a few more hours attempting to catch the murderer unawares.

Saturday Night – The Murderer Revealed

We met at Vivalore where we gathered in the 3rd floor art gallery. A “last chance” to confess was issued by the Inspector at the dinner table.  There would be no easy escape for the guilty one once revealed.  An arrest was about to be made.  No one confessed.  All around the table glances were passed, the knowing looks of those who shared secrets they believed no one else knew.  Oh, but we did, and now it was time to tell.  Tongues were plied with a bit more wine.  The Inspector stood….

You didn’t really think that I was going to reveal the murderer, did you?  You will just have to reserve your spot for the next Murder Mystery at Silver Heart Inn.  Check this blog for details on future Murder Mysteries.
