A harmless old woman searching for love…or a murderer waiting to strike?

When a mysterious woman from the town’s past appears out of the blue—and moves in with a pair of aging bachelor brothers—Kate fears the woman is up to no good. With the town buzzing over rumors of a hidden fortune, she jumps into a puzzling investigation to unearth the woman’s secretive past and save the brothers from heartbreak.
But as she digs deeper, Kate begins to piece together a disturbing and dangerous story.
With innocent lives on the line, Kate must act fast to prevent disaster…and uncover the shocking truth behind a woman who isn’t what she seems to be.
