Meet Jane Kelly
Process server Jane Kelly is flirting with the idea of
becoming a private investigator. She's not convinced she's
really right for the job, but her good friend and mentor,
Dwayne Durbin has assured her she has great qualifications -
- basic nosiness, cheapness and a generally bad attitude.
Jane thinks Dwayne's just desperate to have someone work
for him at Durbin Investigations, the unofficial name of
his one-man detective agency. And she suspects her duties
might be coffee making, cleaning and office receptionist.
However, when a serious mystery drops itself in her lap,
Jane begins an investigation of her own -- looking into the
disappearance of the notorious Bobby Reynolds.
Four years earlier Bobby, an acquaintance of Jane's,
murdered his young family, then disappeared. No one
disputed that he'd slaughtered his own flesh and blood
except Bobby's best friend, Tim Murphy, who just happens to
be Jane's ex. The murders drove a wedge between Jane and
Murphy, and Murphy eventually left town. But now he's on
his way back to attend a Lake Chinook Historical Society
benefit which Bobby's father, Cotton Reynolds, is hosting.
Before Jane can say, "Not in this lifetime," she finds
herself heading to the benefit to meet both Cotton Reynolds
and Tim Murphy. And if that isn't enough to raise her
stress level, a friend of her mother's suddenly leaves Jane
a homely pug named Binky who settles into Jane's home as if
it were her own. Then Mom herself threatens to follow Jane
from southern California to make her home in Oregon. Jane's
life heads sideways fast -- and that's before she finds the
dead body in the lake...
