The sleepy hamlet of Sugar Mountain harbors a secret society of women. Don’t misunderstand—the society itself is not secret— it’s the true nature of the group that is the hush-hush.
Sugar Mountain is the kind of charming village that tourists adore. If you like small-town charm, quirky shops, and local art, this is the place for you. But when a blood smeared package shows up at the post office and it appears to be linked to a scheme that threatens post master, Heidi Collinsworth’s historic home, the Sugar Mountain Ladies Historical Society take matters into their own hands. Heidi would lay odds that slimy Mayor Winslow is involved, but even with the enquiring skills of the society at work, proof is scarce.
The new guy in town, Adam Williams, is determined not to get involved in Sugar Mountain’s business. His last job in a big city planning office ruined his life, but Heidi needs his help. No matter how hard he tries to stay detached, Adam finds himself eyeball deep in Heidi’s problems, as well as the needs of her teenage son and a homeless dog.
With conflicting theories abounding and tensions running high, it’s up to the ladies of the society to don disguises and go undercover. If they’re not careful, the town is in danger of falling to a wrecking ball, Heidi falling for Adam, and the secret society being exposed.
