Shayla Murphy can’t believe her luck when her boyfriend, Seamus O’Malley, proposes and invites her to move to Ireland.
She’s ready to start her new life with Seamus and his warm, welcoming family in the charming town of Ballywick. But on the heels of her engagement, a tragedy strikes—Seamus’ mother Gráinne’s best friend, Sophie, is murdered.
Everyone believes Sophie was trampled by a spooked horse, but Shayla suspects foul play.
Teaming up with her visiting best friend, Rylie, Shayla dives headfirst into solving the case. Her investigation soon implicates shady characters with murky motives.
As she gets closer to unmasking the killer, the stakes heighten. Shayla won’t let anything stop her quest for justice, even if it means putting her own life in peril. Dodging danger at every turn, she’s determined to catch the culprit before her Irish dream turns into a nightmare.
