          Maine’s Quarry Island has a tight-knit community built on a solid foundation of family, tradition, and hard work. But even on this small island, there are secrets.
Anna Winslow and her husband Burt and son Jake are a lobstering family with deeps roots on the island. But Anna’s life changes dramatically when she learns she has a younger sister, who grew up in a very different world. Izzie visits the island, and the two sisters bond over solving a murder that is very close to home … and make plans for their futures.
And …there are recipes.
