Dr. Priscilla Hackling finds herself thrown back into the murder investigation of her fiancé, Trey Whittington. While she was a suspect three years ago, she's now working with the police to find the murderer, Egyptian artifact trafficker Zarka El-Din.
"The tempering agent"
She decided long ago to be called Susan, not exactly the name her parents had given her, but the one she'd chosen... When she first opens her dream shop, Susie's Flowers, on a cold February morning, a new chapter in her life begins. She doesn't anticipate it will include meeting the most eligible bachelor in tiny Winton Springs. Then Ben Turner, the new minister at North Point, walks into Susan's shop to order flowers for the Easter service, and decides to ask her for help.
