Hadley James is finally in the kind of relationship she’s always wanted, with the guy who has always been there for her. So she couldn’t care less when her ex-husband, Tyler, comes to town, flaunting his swimsuit model girlfriend around Stoneybrook. When that same girlfriend is found dead in a dumpster behind Tyler’s family’s grocery store, Hadley wishes she’d paid a little more attention to the woman.
Tyler, the obvious main suspect, comes clean, admitting that he and the woman weren’t actually dating. They’d come to a mutual agreement to help each other out. What Tyler didn’t realize is how deep in trouble she was, or how far the killer would go to evade suspicion. And when the clues start pointing in Hadley’s direction, she and her Stoneybrook friends have to get involved to clear her name. As they dig into Tyler’s arrangement with the deceased woman, they realize Henley Grocery might not just be the site of the murder. The local grocery store shelves are stocked with secrets.
