Its a series about family and friendship. Its a series about shared holidays, festivals, and celebrations. Its a series about shared heartbreak and hardship. And its a series about the bond that can be forged amongst strangers when tragedy binds two or more individuals with a common goal. In book 1 in the series, Ainsley arrives in Gooseberry Bay only to find there will be no easy answers as shed so naively hoped. Unwilling to leave before she gets what she came for, she rents a cottage on the sea where she and her dogs, Kai and Kallie, can settle in and wait. Her first night in town she meets a young woman who is later found dead. The local sheriff has labeled the death of this young woman a suicide based on a text message shed sent before she died. But Ainsley, whod spoken to the victim only hours before the text was sent, isnt quite as sure of the easy answer the sheriff would like everyone to believe. An investigative journalist by trade and cops daughter by upbringing, Ainsley never had been the sort to walk away from unanswered questions, so with the help of new friends she meets along the way, she initiates a parallel investigation which seems to indicate the sheriffs real motivation in trying to sell the suicide angle to the community is to protect the interests of a very rich and very powerful man.
