    When a bike club president's sister goes missing during a meeting, he goes straight to Portman's Creamery for help when he hears their name. The girls take on the case without telling anyone else. They dig deep into the case and realize that it may be a bit more complicated than expected. What appears to be a kidnapping may be about a runaway. It may also be about star-crossed lovers. The case leaves them with very little clues to work with. It also doesn't help that Stacey is starting to fall for her own client.
