Boy, is Mick Campbell infuriating! The police detective is only doing his job, looking into the death of the private investigator my sister had hired to find our presumed-dead mother (it's been a very eventful month!), but does he really believe a member of my family is a killer? I've been planning to spend time with Mick to keep tabs on the investigation, but lately I've been wondering, am I drawn to him because he's a single dad or because his faith is strong under fire?
Portia Blanchard is living in limbo. It seems her family history is full of secrets, her father is suspected in a murder investigation and Portia is trying to decide where she belongs.. in New York or back in Stoneley. Mitch Campbell, the detective investigating her father, is smitten the moment he sees Portia, but romance is the last thing either one of them is looking for right now. Needless to say, we don't always get what we want in the time we want it. As Portia sticks her nose into Mitch's investigation, she finds herself a target. It seems someone is unhappy about Mitch's work and wants it to stop... and if necessary he/she will use force to press the isssue. Will Portia find her way back to peace and love or will see choose to return to the busyness of New York to protect her heart from those she loves?
