About the Book
Armed with her quest for the truth and many stops for iced tea and good down-home Southern cooking, Daniella doesn't give up on her cousin, even though he has left a trail of broken hearts along the way. As the two had grown up together, Daniella and Leo always felt like brother and sister, both enduring the home environment of the mighty Ross Pierce, the Second. Ross Pierce was a wealthy businessman and well respected among his peers but becoming that powerful in a small Southern town means that you will develop enemies along the way. The question is, which one hated him enough to kill him in such a horrific way?
Daniella struggles to unravel the mystery in time to save her cousin but also faces the racial tension that she left behind when she married an Arab and became a Muslim. With the help and support of a handful of her relatives and her dearest friends, Daniella takes the necessary steps to end the tension once and for all.
