After spending the 18 months following her divorce in a semi-comatose state, Nell Dysart knows she must now get her act together.

Luckily her former brother-in-law arranges for her to interview with Gabe McKenna, head of McKenna Investigations, who is looking for a temporary receptionist. It is fortunate that Jack Dysart has smoothed the way since the interview is less than stellar.

Nell wastes little time shaking things upher first day on the job she uncovers an embezzler. She then proceeds to help rescue a dog and tick off her new boss. But Nells machinations have unexpected consequences and Gabe begins to suspect there may be a dark secret involving his deceased father and Nells former in-laws. Digging up that secret may be costly for all.
