Murder Mystery Synopsis:

In the town of Sun Valley, Sunny Shinewell is famous for having the most awesome pool parties. She invited the usual suspects who all arrived on the scene in their most fabulous poolside attire - ready for a day of fun in the sun. The guests arrived and enjoyed some yummy summer appetizers and fun party drinks while engaging in fun party games by the pool. The partiers settled down to enjoy a delicious dinner while relaxing in the shade. 

Out of the blue, a guest collapsed to their death! The facts pointed to a murder, so the guests quickly rallied together and commenced a thorough investigation to figure out whodunit. They took a few breaks to relieve the stress of the investigation and played fun party challenges. As they neared a conclusion of whodunit, Sunny served a to die for dessert. The suspects came clean with their involvement, if any, with the murder and to everybody's surprise, the murderer confessed! After an exciting escape attempt by the guilty party, the guests topped off the party with another fun challenge in the summer sun.
