Josie Prescott's new life in New Hampshire is proceeding more or less as planned, despite her involvement in a murder investigation last year. Her business is thriving, her friendship with the local police chief has become something much more intimate, and shes even collected a few candidates for close friends. Not bad after completely uprooting her life as a New York City auction house expert and starting fresh. With so much suddenly to lose, Josie's heart falls when another suspicious death occurs very close to her new world. The benefit she's hosting is Josies way of giving back to her new community. But when Maisy Gaylor drops dead at the gala event, and all those who had access to the prep area, including Josie herself, are on the short list of suspects, it's all she can do to keep up appearances and stop herself from pulling up roots again.
