When Kate Jennings arrives in Memphis from London to expand her business, falling in love with an upcoming Country Music star was the last thing on her mind.

With the help of her cousin she starts investigating to silence the ghosts of the past for good, but the murderer’s son is on a mission to silence her. But when she witnesses her new love passionately kissing another woman, Kate seriously starts to doubt if her latest venture on the other side of the Atlantic, was a clever move. In an impulse she rushes to the airport and, broken-hearted, flies back to London where fate follows her …
