Five-and-dime store owner Devereaux â€śDevâ€ť Sinclair moved to
Shadow Bend for her family. But when her long-lost mother
shows up in town, she realizes too much kin can be killer...
Shadow Bendâ€™s library closed years ago because of budgetary
problems, so when a wealthy benefactor offers to reopen it,
everyone, including Dev, is thrilled. But Devâ€™s excitement
wanes when she realizes the mysterious donor is actually her
runaway mother Yvetteâ€™s latest husband, Jett Benedict.
Dev suspects that Yvette and Jettâ€™s intentions arenâ€™t as
noble as they appear, but before she can discover what
theyâ€™re really up to, Jett turns up deadâ€”and all clues point
to Yvette as the prime suspect.
Even though Dev has no loyalty to Yvette, sheâ€™s in a bind.
Setting the record straight could prove her mother is a
killer. But doing nothing might get her mother booked for a
crime she didnâ€™t commit...
