Spring has brought many new beginnings into the world of Persimmon ‘Simmy’ Brown. Not only has her baby arrived, but she and her fiancé, Christopher, have moved to the historic village of Hartsop - and their forthcoming nuptials are only a short month away. But when a former acquaintance of Christopher’s reminds him of an undertaking made a decade previously that he hasn't fulfilled, their lives soon take a sinister turn.
Yet even with a young baby to consider, Simmy cannot ignore her instinct to investigate, especially when the murder has a personal link to her soon-to-be husband. Assisted by her would-be detective friend Ben, can Simmy puzzle out this reckoning from the past and protect her family?
