It’s fall in North Harbor, Maine, where Sarah owns a charming secondhand shop and sells lovingly refurbished items of all kinds.

A cold case heats up when young Mallory Pearson appears at the shop. Mallory’s father is in prison for negligence after her stepmother’s mysterious death, but Mallory believes he is innocent and asks the in-house detectives to take on the case. With Sarah and Elvis lending a paw, the detectives decide to try to give Mallory’s father a second chance of his own.  (Amazon)

Not as strong as the danger of a determined ex-husband who is out to nail Connie as the murderer.

Bonnie and her mom have to use family resources to prove Connie is innocent, because going to jail when you didn’t do anything is worse than death. Or so they’ve heard.

Can this mother and daughter team defeat the demons of dieting as well as discover who the killer is before the handcuffs slip into place?
