Jessie Bailey, an executive at a property management firm in Jacksonville Florida, loves her job, her church work, and her best friend Donnie Lee. But memories of a former stepfather's torment haunt her. She lives most days looking over her shoulder, never letting anyone get too close.
When David Alan arrives from the corporate office in Houston to investigate possible fraud in Jessie's department, nothing prepares him for his initial reaction to the powerful and beautiful Jessie. Nor is he prepared for the temperature in the room to drop to "arctic" whenever they cross paths.
In one eventful morning, Jessie's quiet life turns upside down with the arrival of the attractive interloper from Houston and two anonymous gifts left on her desk; gifts intended to let her know her former stepfather has been released from prison and is bent on revenge.
Now Jessie has to clear her name and department of accusations, while keeping herself alive until her stalker is behind bars again.
But she doesn't have to do it alone. Along the way she'll find herself propped up by Donnie Lee, David Alan, her Red Hat mentor Mrs. Graylee, and most of all, her faith in her Lord.
