Police Chief Meg Beall has had a rough first year on the job and can’t afford to make another mistake. When a prominent citizen turns up dead, all clues point to his nephew. But if she arrests him, will the good citizens of Santa Marta think she’s out for revenge? He is, after all, the man who left her standing at the altar.
Popular winery manager Cabot Lane never hid his hatred for the uncle who made his life miserable, but he didn’t kill the weasel and it hurts that Meg thinks he did. He knows he doesn’t deserve her forgiveness, but if his uncle’s murder is to be solved, they need to work together and do it soon.
Because a killer’s still at large and the next victim may already be in danger.
