After private investigator in training, Raina Sun witnesses a kidnapping, the victim shows up unharmed and claims nothing happened. She insists she was at a day spa the entire time.
The case grows even murkier when Raina's client, the husband of the supposed victim, is found dead at the old pumpkin patch, the site for a contentious new mall development. Raina's new boss seems more worried about collecting their fee than seeking justice for the deceased.
To make matters worse, her sister plans a getaway weekend in Lake Tahoe to revive her marriage, landing Raina with a tornado of a three-year-old. As if that’s not enough, her grandma is jealous of the time Raina spends with her new fiancé.
A kidnapping, a dead client, and a energetic preschooler--Raina's weekend goes from bad to worse. Can Raina see her way clear to the end, or will a storm come crashing down when the murderer realizes she's hot on the trail?

FIVE THINGS ABOUT ANNE
1. I can't resist ice cream.
2. I started my first book a month after I had my first baby.
3. And now that she's seven, I brainstorm story ideas with my girl.
4. Instead of reading to my children, I make up stories round-robin style with my children at bedtime.
5. I secretly want Raina Sun's life.
A NOTE FROM ANNE:
My books are my legacy to my children. Unfortunately, they won't grow up in the San Francisco Bay Area as I did. Without a cultural hub to keep the language and philosophies alive, our family will lose this part of our heritage in one generation. My children will be visitors to this rich culture just like my readers. I hope you'll enjoy your time with Raina Sun and her large dynamic family.
