An aging heiress, the beloved dog who will inherit her fortune, and too many suspicious accidents. Or are they a prelude to murder?
Jesse Camden is a sucker for a mystery. So when Amanda Carmichael's assistant Bethany asks the Myrtle Grove Garden Club to investigate what she thinks are attempts on her employer's life, Jesse and Vivian Windsor agree. But before they can start, Bethany sends a frantic message that Amanda is leaving for her isolated estate in the Salish Sea, taking her dog Lady and a small staff, including Bethany, with her. As Jesse and Vivian go hurrying after them, disaster strikes again, and this time the "accident" is fatal.
Jesse and Vivian suddenly find themselves racing toward the unknown, determined to uncover the truth and protect the small dog who not only inherits Amanda's fortune, but the danger that stalks this remote private island.
