School teacher Nicole Davis is on summer break, but this vacation is unlike any other. Her beloved grandmother's final wish has landed Nicole smack in the middle of her favorite destination, Sunriver, Oregon, following Grams's clues on a mysterious scavenger hunt. Unexpectedly, Nicole finds more than just a fellow sleuth in a handsome police officer, Mark Stone. But Mark must return to his job in Portland at summer's end, and Nicole must guard her heart. Mark is hoping for a quiet summer in Sunriver as he contemplates his future in law enforcement, but a string of burglaries draws him from his self-imposed break from detective work and thrusts him into the middle of the investigation. To complicate matters, Nicole is in jeopardy, and he knows his growing feelings for her could cloud his judgment. Will their differing career goals be the end of their summer romance, or just the beginning of forever after?

This is such a sweet, clean story, it starts off with Nicole being sent on a summer vacation Scavenger hunt set up by her recently deceased grandmother. Grams could not have foreseen the handsome policeman working in Sunriver for the summer or the blossoming romance between Nicole and policeman Mark. The scavenger hunt was fun. There are many twists and turns in the story including a 12-year-old boy with a knack for finding trouble and the mystery and danger of the home robberies. There is also a softer side of Mark taking an interest in young Connor and wanting to protect Nicole. Nicole's faith re-awakens in the process, gently guided by her grandmother's clues. This was very well told without being "preachy"
The author gives very detailed descriptions of everything and the narrator does a good job of bringing those details to life. I felt as if I was watching a movie while listening to this audiobook. Needless to say, I enjoyed this audiobook very much! I will definitely listen again. I look forward to more from this author.
