Not even her dashing boyfriend Hugo's charms can deter Sam Jones from getting out of the city for the holidays, especially when her goodfriend Tom invites her to the quaint English B&B he now calls home. When Sam and Hugo arrive in Lesser Swinburne, a sleepy hollow deep in the English countryside, they feel like fish out of water. But when Tom's latest girlfriend is murdered, Sam suddenly finds herself in familiar surroundings.
While defending her wrongly accused best pal, Sam gets under the skin of each local inhabitant and ends up uncovering more than she bargained for, including a deep attraction to Alan, a young college student who may hold the key to the entire case. Will Sam's longing for another adventure set her on course for true love -- or trigger a deadly disaster?
