A single mom finds herself taking over a private investigation business in coastal Canada in this involving crime thriller.
A young widowed mother, Wilhelmina Anne Brown is just beginning to find some stability in her new home in Prince Edward Island when she is forced to deal with the death of her beloved uncle, Bill Darby. Darby, an Ontario cop turned Charlottetown private investigator, has left Anne and her fourteen-year-old daughter a small savings account and his business, where Anne has worked as office manager for six years. 
Anne has faced hardships in her life before, but she’s about to begin a whole new kind of struggle—to protect her family, find justice for her clients, and forge a new life for herself in this picturesque place that has become her new home.
