When good girls meet boys behaving badly, it's a dance with danger! Romance-challenged Cady, owner of Cady's Cakes, thinks it's time to give up on love. She's content to bake her cakes and roast her coffee in her Old Saybrook shop after her six-year relationship fizzles. But then, she never expected to run into someone like Doc, the just-retired Army medic back from Afghanistan. Hardly warm and fuzzy, Doc is rough around the edges, intense, and not afraid to ask the tough questions. When her teenage employee, Daisy, becomes the target of a murderous plot at the shop, Doc inserts himself into the equation with determination to get to the bottom of things. Who's behind it and why? Daisy's father, Doug, took off with his mistress, Mimi, in the middle of her mother's cancer treatment, creating a local scandal. The divorce, the ugly custody battle, and a new set of triplets creates complications for Doug and his very ambitious wife, Mimi, now poised to take on a prestigious job in their new locale. Doug presses yet again for custody of Daisy and her little brother, Dylan, even knowing how much stress it causes his ex-wife. Cady worries that Daisy's mother won't survive all the calamity. Poised on the edge of remission, Carole's cancer has taken its toll on the whole family, but it's also done something else -- it's reawakened a nightmare Cady thought was long ago forgotten, especially after Daisy is attacked at the shop. Struggling to put her own ghosts to rest, Cady must learn to trust a stranger if she wants to save Carole and the kids, and the only way to do that is to face her past. Can she do it in time?
