Publisher Description

Arabella Stewart, grieving the losses of her parents and brother, returns home from serving as an operator in the Great War to find Ballantyne, her family resort, and Moreley, her small hometown in precarious positions. Another impediment arises when she discovers the body of a neighbor and becomes involved in a murder investigation. Unfortunately, she must work with Constable Jackson Hastings. Once a big part of her life, Jax turned his back on Bella after her brother, his best friend, died in the trenches. The young constable's cold attitude hasn't softened, but she can't let that stop her. Both her hometown and family resort, once popular tourist destinations, may not survive if the crime isn't solved quickly.

Jax, a war veteran, faces his own challenges. Wounded in body and spirit, his dreams shattered, he finds himself doing what he said he'd never do—following in his father's footsteps as constable. When a crime wave hits town, culminating in the murder, his competence is questioned. In a struggle to find the killer and save his job, Jax needs all the help he can get—but he doesn't want assistance from Bella. Not when he feels responsible for her brother's death. But more is at stake than his job. He can't stand by and let Moreley become a ghost town. Nor can he watch while Bella loses Ballantyne.

Working together is the only way to solve the crime and offer hope—to their community and for themselves.
