Interior designer Hadley Sutton has an eye for style, an ear for gossip, and a nose for trouble.
Hadley couldn’t be happier in Darlington Hills. She’s loving her new town, new friends, and new job staging rooms for photo shoots at a trendy home furnishings company—even though her boss is quick-tempered and rude. Everything seems perfect until Hadley finds a body in her boss’s kitchen and all eyes turn to him as the likely suspect.
Faced with the possibility of losing her job if her boss ends up behind bars, she starts asking questions around town in hopes of proving his innocence. But when Hadley’s questions strike a hot nerve with someone, she finds herself dodging escalating threats—all while working furiously to meet deadlines for her company’s first-ever printed catalog, prepping for the town’s annual Flower Festival, and navigating budding friendships with two town flirts, one of whom happens to be her boss’s brother.

Darlington Hills, Virginia is a little slice of southern heaven, and there’s no place Hadley would rather be after a painful breakup with her locally famous boyfriend, whose face is plastered on every street corner in New Orleans. Fleeing the big city, she travels to Darlington Hills for a job interview, family time with her favorite aunt, and a break from the sad reality of her now-single, party-of-one status.
But when Hadley serendipitously snags a last-minute interior design gig and her client’s fiancée goes missing, she feels more than a little responsible for the woman’s disappearance. Driven by a guilty conscience, Hadley searches for answers while trying to stay focused on her ultimate goal of acing the interview and landing her dream job. Turns out that isn’t so easy, with distractions like the dimpled Officer Appley and the mounting danger that has befallen the idyllic small town.
