It starts with an invitation but ends with a mysterious disappearance, or maybe it's murder. They don't know yet. But time to discover the truth is running out--tick tock.
It's been ages since bright, young lawyer Rosalie Stetson returned to her hometown of Blushing Green, California, where beautiful hills separate ultra-wealthy wine country from the common folk. She hadn't been back since her divorce from a man who grew up on the rich side of the tracks. But when her ex-grandmother-in-law invites her to an 80th birthday bash, Rosalie says yes, risking bumping into her obnoxious ex-husband. However, there's a catch. Edna wants to meet with her a day before the party to discuss important business. Rosalie has no idea what that could be, and Edna's not talking, yet.
When Chance Sterling sees Rosalie Stetson walk into his grandmother's study, he's shocked. He's also disappointed that she doesn't remember him. He will never forget her. But he didn't know she was so close to his grandmother, and as his slimy cousin Peter's ex-wife, he's not sure he can trust her.
Then Edna goes missing. Her blood is discovered, and even though the two young lawyers can't trust each other, they're forced to unite to figure out what happened. They won't stop looking until Edna is found dead or alive. And discovery is in the air in more ways than one.
