Highly successful Nashville real estate agent Toni Matthews is at the top of her game and on the cusp of marrying and starting a family with her fiancé Scott Chadwick. He is a highly skilled architect currently working on an upscale hotel complex. Just days before their wedding, Scott apparently falls to his death in what authorities are calling a suicide. But Toni disagrees!
After the funeral, held on the day they were to be married, Toni begins her search for the truth; although everyone around her believes Scott took his own life. While friends and business associates try to help Toni accept the reality of the situation and encourage her to start moving on with her life, doesn’t understand why they don’t see the truth – that the tragic fall was either a horrible accident or someone pushed Scott to his death.
What's more, Scott's estranged brother, Brian, immediately contests a will that leaves everything to Toni. He demands that he should be the sole recipient of Scott's estate.
What follows is a fast-paced account of the thoughts and actions of a woman who knows her fiancé would never commit suicide. And she knows who killed him! As Toni boldly follows whatever clues she can mine, little does she know that her own life may be on the line. All she knows is that she wants answers and she wants them now!
