After a whirlwind marriage to San Celina Police Chief Gabe Ortiz, Benni Harper is excited to visit her Kansas hometown. At a rowdy backyard barbecue, she meets Tyler Brown, an aspiring country singer with a promising future–and a fascinating past. Once, Tyler had lived the simple Amish life. Now she’s determined to make it on her own selling her exquisite handmade quilts. But Tyler’s gifts–and her life–are cut short when she’s murdered. Out of his jurisdiction, Gabe is frustrated to sit on the sidelines while his friends are investigated by his own sleuthing wife. And Benni realizes that her hasty marriage will be much like Kansas weather: unpredictable and bound to be stormy.
