A phone call to the sheriff should mean the end of Cookie’s involvement, but when it’s clear the sheriff has no interest in the investigation, Cookie calls in reinforcements…her ex-partner Hunter O’Neil. Suddenly it’s like old times while the pair questions the residents of Secret Seal Isle. Except it’s not. Now she has both Hunter and Dylan vying for her attention, a wayward hippy mother, and a potential killer on the loose.
With her love life heating up, her mother lighting up, and all signs pointing to the most unlikely suspect, Cookie does the only thing she knows to do—focus on solving the case.
When Rain tries to help clear Blake’s good name, she lands in a bizarre love triangle of her own. Fortunately Cookie is on the case, with her own Valentine, Dylan by her side.

With relationships under fire and a body on ice, Cookie needs to solve another murder and find a way to save Valentine’s Day.

Except with Dylan in the picture, Cookie’s realizing someone else might be lighting her fire. Unfortunately, her love life is going to have to wait. Between kidnappings, attempted murder, and stolen kisses, Cookie James has a case to solve.
