After suffering the consequences of an error in judgment in her job as an FBI forensic psychologist, Sydney Whitmore came home to Shipwreck Island for an extended vacation. Having spent several months on the island with her family, Sydney has realized that she’d like to move back home. Sydney and her sisters, Emily and Rory, were taken in and raised by Aunt Charlie when their parents were killed in an automobile accident. Emily, her two young daughters, and Rory live at Jack’s Hideaway with Aunt Charley and Charley’s father-in-law, Hank Hamilton. Besides helping at the resort, Emily is writing a lifestyle blog. Rory is a veterinary technician who often brings animals in need of extra attention home with her. Logan Alexander, who grew up at the resort, is on the island to care for his ill father, Liam, and is contemplating a permanent move and taking over Henry Collins’ medical practice. Sidney’s friend, Riley Chesterfield, a mugging victim, who was in a coma for months, has finally come home.
Sydney has renewed her relationship with Ezra Reinhold and is currently working with him and his top-of-the-line team of experts to clear the name of Eugene Hatfield, who was convicted of murdering Carl Rubio on Halloween night three years ago. Sidney also helps Shipwreck Island’s sheriff, Sam Stone, with a stabbing on the beach, and Collin asks for her help with a kidnapping near a school.
Syd Whitmore is a valued forensic psychologist for the FBI but the job has drained her, worn her down and she returned to her family for a break and emotional recharge. Now she has decisions to make about her future, including career and living arrangements.
Her childhood best friend is in a similar situation. He loves his job as a medical doctor but his father is getting older and Logan wants to be around for his dad. As a bonus he is reconnecting with Sydney.
This book also has some adorable puppies and a mother dog looking for a new home.
As a side investigation, Syd is working with an elite group of specialists trying to overturn a murder conviction. The murder took place on Halloween and a possible suspect was dressed head to toe as Darth Vader. We get to know more about the team as this series progresses.
As if that is not enough, the local Sheriff also asks for Syd's help on a case.
Plus another case that Syd was involved in when she first arrived has new information.
Lots going on and similarities exist between the cases. Syd works hard at balancing work and family.
This is an exciting and fascinating series.
Update: Just found out that this is book 3, lol. Now I'm reading book 1.
