In the village where "all are welcome and those in need may stay" long-buried secrets keep rising to the surface.
With renovations on the house finally complete, Jayne and Tripp are ready to open their B&B. Villagers and tourists gather for their grand opening barbecue. Close friends check in as their first guests. Aside from a minor glitch or two, everything is going to plan ... and then someone turns up dead on the side of the road.
Unsure if she's looking for a murderer or a hit-and-run driver, Jayne jumps headlong into figuring out what happened. Her confidence is shaken, though, when some of the locals point out that the rash of murders started when she arrived in the village, insinuating that she brought the darkness hovering over Whispering Pines.
ow, in the middle of a possible murder investigation, Jayne must clear her own name as well.
