From the rocky shores of Lake Stevens near small town Pinehill, Texas to the teeming streets of Dallas and sweltering beaches of Miami, aspiring PI Amanda Mason fearlessly stalks the killer who is letting her father take the blame for murder.
Single mom Amanda Mason thinks she’d make a pretty good Private Investigator. Trouble is, she doesn’t own a cell phone or a computer and her old green Dodge only starts when it wants to. Plus, she’s stuck at home with a precocious five-year-old, AND looking after her elderly father who just had a heart attack while helping him run his dilapidated bait and tackle shop on the lake. When the Pinehill PD suddenly charge her dad with murder, Amanda has to prove she’d make a VERY GOOD PI and solve the case ASAP, otherwise her dad is going to jail for life! Since the handsome man who has agreed to help her is keeping his true identity a secret, Amanda fears it’s possible he knows the answers and is keeping her in the dark. But, why?
