Will shaking the secrets out of the family tree be a recipe for disaster?
Crime solving dessert queen, Scotti Fitzgerald, has it all now—a booming bakery business, a great man, and a new home. But when P.I. Joe Enders, hires her to work on the Devereaux murder case, it stirs up things from her past that threaten to ruin her soon-to-be perfect life. Determined to get her happily ever after, Scotti decides to find the mother who abandoned her, so she can finally put her demons to rest.
Leery of being on the defense team of accused killer, Spencer Atkinson, Scotti works the case at a distance. Little does she know that her own story has more in common with the case than she could ever imagine. And that peeling back the onion of her life, will pull her deeper into Atkinson’s world.
As the murder case heats up, tension builds between Scotti and Joe until she is abandoned once again, by someone she trusts. Left on her own to investigate her mother’s past, Scotti encounters dead ends, false clues, and people who’ll do anything to protect their secrets—including murder. Will Scotti unearth the truth or just become one more dead family secret, herself?
Stephanie Plum and Sookie Stackhouse fans will enjoy this multi-layered whodunit that will have them guessing til the end.
