'Vickie starts her private eye business with only one client. She immerses herself in the case by helping a distressed woman, Alison Jenkins, who mourns for her deceased husband, Frank. The more Vickie learns about this case, the further she realises something sinister occurred with Frank’s death and the assumed suicide could well be a cover for murder. The private eye work distracts Vickie from her renewed commitment to husband George, and her marriage is once more in rocky territory. Vickie is forced to decide what is important to her and decide what her heart really desires, being a private eye or a wife. Or can she find a way to have both?'
