Welcome to Sweet Grove, TN—an old-fashioned southern town full of colorful characters who never did learn to mind their own business. Despite growing up there, Belle Baxter never truly fit in, what with her runaway Mom and unknown Dad. For her gran’s sake, she tries to do her best for the town and its people. After studying in Atlanta, she moves back to help her gran at the Baxter Preserves & More shop.
Within days, she’s adding her own spin to the preserve shop, serving smoothies and trendy coffee drinks galore. There’s also the town gossips and old rivals to deal with, old friends to catch up with, Luke, the young pastor who takes an interest in her…and Gus, the sheriff’s handsome new deputy… But when a murder shakes the small town to its foundations, Belle turns amateur sleuth to catch the villain…and clear her own name.
