Instead, its progress was stopped by the body of a man her husband recently represented. The dead man had been shot by her husband’s gun. Jack was a primary suspect. Kelly couldn’t decide if Jack was a murderer or marked as the next victim. They were forced to put their marital differences aside and concentrate on keeping Jack alive while discovering who was behind the whole thing.

Bethany Petersen is the rightful heir to the Petersen Estate, but her grandmother's will states otherwise. Instead, it will go to Walker Keane, the murderer of her sister. The only way she can get control of the estate is through marriage to Walker. The idea is absurd to Bethany, and she assumes he will think so, too. Instead of trying to help her find a way around her grandmother's stipulation, he asks her to marry him. So she hatches a plan to not only to get her inheritance back, but once and for all prove that her sister was murdered by Walker.

Whether the conspiracy believers think that the earth is flat, the moon landing was fake or there are trolls online, we must be tolerant of others and remember that freedom of speech goes both ways.
