Cindy Lange's heart lay in shattered pieces. A fluke Google search revealed that her partner of seven years, Diana, had traded her in for a newer, younger model. Seeking to retreat from her grief, Cindy signed up to be a dog foster mommy. Duke, an elderly basset hound, was just the salve she needed to soothe her jagged wounds. His big, soulful eyes reminded her that life offered much to appreciate. Every new rose bush held beneath it the hope of a playful chipmunk or elusive acorn.
And then, strolling with Duke along a sunny bike path, Cindy got the call that lifted her spirits. The Worcester Art Museum needed her help. At long last, her dreams of becoming an art detective were coming true!
But could Cindy shake off the shadowy tendrils of her failed relationship to focus on her very first case?
