Kelly Quinn’s Long Island consignment shop offers high style at secondhand prices—but when a body is found on the beach, she needs to start hunting for a wolf in sheep’s clothing . . .

Kelly is thrilled when she gets a visit from a cousin she hasn’t seen in years. Becky’s cosmetics company is taking off, and she just might have laid the foundation for a big-money buyout. It’s a time to celebrate—but Kelly is heartbroken when a killer puts an end to their happy reunion during a mysterious midnight meeting near the shore.

Despite multiple warnings to steer clear, Kelly starts shadowing a variety of suspects both inside and outside the beauty business—when she isn’t busy filling the racks of the Lucky Cove Resale Boutique with lots of new inventory from a local shopaholic. Gossip and accusations are flying, but there’s no glossing over this ugly crime, and she’s going to make sure the culprit faces justice…

Summer fun is the goal, along with many sales to touristing visitors. Kelly's cousin Becky, who runs a beauty products company, is coming for sun and relaxation. The girls, along with their cousin Frankie and Kelly's sister, grew up together. Now each is following their own dream but enjoy time they get to spend together.

A new house full of clothing for consignment looks to be a dream for Kelly, and Becky's business is so popular that larger commercial companies are taking notice. Becky brings with her a business partner, Jessica, who is very ambitious. Influence from social media (both good and negative) are topics central to this book.

The sun and dreams fade when Becky is discovered deceased on the beach. Discovered by none other than her cousin, Kelly. This is not her first deadly discovery and the local police are none too please that once again she is closely connected to a fatal crime.

Well, if it was your family wouldn't you do any and everything you can to find the responsible person? To discover the truth?
Truth - there is another topic that swirls in and out of these pages.
Who can be believed, who are the real victims, and what will happen next?
The author keeps you guessing until the end.

The only one Kelly can count on, and is consistent, is Howard.
