      Like Mother, Like Daughter
    While Dorothy Martin loves nearly everything about England -- especially her new husband, retired police detective Alan Nesbitt -- she could do without September's incessant rain. The lure of the sunshine of Cornwall's picturesque coast and an unsolved mystery prove too tempting to resist.

    Thirty years earlier, the murder of a beautiful woman had become Alan's first homicide investigation. The case, which was never solved, haunts him still. Upon their arrival, Dorothy and Alan meet a young woman who, it turns out, is the daughter of that long-ago victim. Tragically, Lexa shares the same fate as her mother when she, too, is found dead on the rocky shores of Penzance.

    In a town teeming with legends and lore, Dorothy vows to avenge two innocent deaths and bring a clever killer to justice.
