Suzette Dunfey, a widow at the age of 51, decides to open a cocoa café in St. Joseph, Michigan. Everything is going according to plan until she discovers a tunnel - dug by the infamous mobster Al Capone - and a dead body.
FBI Agent Ben Crocker, a craggy looking bachelor, investigates. Ben and Suzette grow closer as they realize how much they have in common. And, somewhere in St. Joseph, there's a murderer who isn't finished.
