Combine one hair brain uncover assignment, two dimwitted criminals and get the most eligible bachelor in town.
It’s a recipe for disaster, for pretty PI Shelby MacGregor who always gets her man.
“Maggie Colter,” Sarah her voice was stern in warning. “We’ve been best friends since we were in pigtails. I’ve been with you on every crazy adventure you’ve had, but this one takes the cake!”
“Everyone has grandchildren,” Maggie said pointedly, “everyone! The women at the Guild, Sunday school, all our friends, YOU!”
“Jack just hasn’t met the right girl yet,” Sarah offered, trying to keep pity out of her voice.
“The right girl! The right girl! That boy of mine is 31 years old! And I am tired of waiting! It’s high time I take matters into my own hands. Whether you think this is a fool plan or not I’m going to see this through!”
With a glint in her blue eyes, Maggie raised her chin. “I don’t care. I have waited for him long enough to make up his mind. Now it’s up to me.”
Sarah shook her head. “Well do you have anyone in mind?”
Maggie brightened prettily. “As a matter of fact I do. I saw my attorney, you know Emmett Smith, don’t you? Well just the other day I saw him talking to a pretty girl at the courthouse. Just Jack’s type.”
“Outside the courthouse? Heavens to Betsy, Maggie! She could be a murderer or a criminal for all you know.”
“I’m not going to listen to another word from you Sarah; I thought you of all people would be helpful.” Maggie sniffed as she took a sip of her coffee, “besides, but I know my son, and Jack will find her attractive. She’s smart and she has her own business. My future daughter-in-law is a private investigator!”
“That poor boy,” Sarah said, shaking her head. “I remember how hurt he was when he found out his college sweetheart was cheating with another fella. Maggie, I wonder if Jack is ever going to trust a girl again no matter how pretty she is.”
“Good grief, Sarah, that was years ago. Now I am going to find out more about her, then I have to come up with a way to get her and Jack together. This time next year, I will be holding my first grandchild. Wait and see!”
