A pink tricycle in the yard prompts her hasty decision to break-in, saving a sleeping woman and her three children. Her ex-boyfriend, Sergeant Alex Delaney, thinks she’s insane to take on the woman as a client. But with the husband out of town during the incident, he’s the prime suspect, and Candice has a gut feeling he didn’t do it. Who would want a woman and three children dead?
One widow, one killer - who will die first? Gutsy, grieving Anna is determined to find who murdered her husband.

When she runs up against Lee Adams, a handsome police detective who’s determined to save Anna from herself, she has to step up her rogue search for the killer, before time and dwindling leads run out.
