Despite a serious cat allergy and her mother’s warnings of doom and disaster, Reverend Jessamy Ward is excited to return to her early childhood home on the Isle of Wesberrey. There she will take up her new role as parish priest of St. Bridget’s Abbey.

However, she should have heeded her mother’s warning for there are secrets waiting for her. Secrets that do not wish to be known. Secrets that will force her to question not only her vocation but her sanity too.

Finding herself on rocky ground, can Jess uncover the killer, or will the unearthing of her own family’s secrets destroy her new life?
