Carly Keene doesn’t go looking for dead bodies, but they just sort of turn up anyway…

When Parker’s Mill’s favorite photographer, Carly Keene, and her best friend, Shell, find a dead body that’s NOT supposed to be in the local graveyard, Carly takes it upon herself to track down the killer. It won’t be easy, because the corpse in question, a local judge, had more enemies than she can shake a stick at.

Did Carly’s favorite high school art teacher really kill the judge in a fit of rage? Or was the not-so-grieving widow to blame for the man’s untimely demise? Perhaps the dapper newcomer with a British accent had a hand in the gruesome murder?

Carly and her best friend Shell are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, with help from Brandon, her hunky police officer cousin, before the killer can hurt anyone else in the sleepy little town. But first, she has to figure out why strange things are happening in her house while she sleeps, and get Shell to admit her feelings for the local diner owner. Plus, there’s her slowly simmering relationship with Tucker to see to… It’s more than enough to make her head spin, but Carly’s going to make sure that justice is served just as sweetly as a piece of Shell’s famous chocolate cake…
