Shes torn between Deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Del Vecchio, who is on an undercover assignment, and her ex-beau Noah Underwood, the local doctor from a high-society family. So she welcomes the distraction when Elise Whitmore offers her a great deal on antique chocolate molds that would be perfect for her Easter gift baskets. But do the molds actually belong to Elises soon-to-be ex-husband? In buying them, has Dev committed a felony?
When Elise is found shot to death, the mystery deepensand Devs good friend Boone, who discovered the body, is taken into custody. With the help of her best buds, Dev must clear Boones name and find the real killer. Good thing that when it comes to amateur sleuths, they broke the mold with Dev Sinclair.
