From back of book: Crime Analyst Caitlyn Tilson Pepper inherits a vineyard and two Shakespearean theaters in a northern California town from a mysterious aunt and becomes a target for murder. Cait's investigation into the life and death of her aunt Tasha forces her down a road paved with familial lies, devastating secrets, and multiple murders. Marcus Singer, a convicted felon and Tasha's secretary, and Rachel Cross, a neighbor and Shakespearean actress, resent Cait's inheritance, but with the help of Royal Tanner (RT), a Navy SEAL, Cait is able to uncover the lies beneath the murders.
After two arson attempts at the Elizabethan Theater, a blast of birdshop intended for Cait, and the suspicious nature of Tasha's autopsy, Cait decides to stay in California--even if she must sacrifice her job in Ohio. The unexpected twist of her birthright helps explain her inheritance, but makes a decision to return to her job more difficult.
