    Hope Foster's motto is to let fate lead you - which it did in her case right to the quiet town of Danger Cove. But when the owner of the Smugglers' Tavern, where Hope tends bar, is murdered, suddenly fate puts Hope squarely in the role of "prime suspect" in her employer's murder. Not only is she the last one to see him alive, but a new will also reveals that her employer left his whole estate to Hope instead of his ungrateful daughter Elise and nephew Carter.
