Zen’s ultra-handsome detective partner, Hunter, encourages Clarity to learn self-defense—especially since she’s getting closer to discovering who the killer is. Using her social media sleuthing skills, she sets out to bait the murderer.
Is she clever enough to entrap the killer? Or will she end up as the catch of the day?
When a whitewater rafting adventure ends in murder, Clarity Bloom dives in to find the killer. After her friend is arrested for the crime, she is determined to find out who the real murderer is.
Things take a comedic turn when Clarity’s hippie mom gets into the action, nearly sending Clarity and her sleuth friends up the creek without a paddle. As if the tension isn’t turbulent enough, Clarity’s older brother Zen once again forbids her from dating his hot detective cohort, Hunter.
Will Clarity stay afloat amid the crazy obstacles blocking her way, or will she be the killer’s next victim?
When Clarity's little sister Karma is framed for the murder of her no-good husband Don, Clarity has no choice but to prove her innocence.
But when Clarity's hippie mom shows up to "help", Clarity not only has to find Don's killer, but she must also keep her over-enthusiastic mom from getting in the way. She soon discovers that Don was into some shady business dealings, not to mention his liaisons with demanding mistresses.
Between the goons following her, a car explosion, and trying to maintain her love life, Clarity certainly has her work cut out for her. Can Clarity clear her sister's name before the murder trial? Or is karma going to take a wrong turn?
