Rory Chasen, now the manager of the Lucky Dog Boutique in Destiny, California, is delighted when her best friend Gemma arrives a day early for her visit. Gemma's just broken up with her boyfriend in Los Angeles, so Rory is especially eager to cheer her up. But before they get a chance to talk, two of the town's most eligible bachelors sidle in. Their amorous advances--and an unexpected job offer--seem to take Gemma's mind off her ex . . . until he arrives in Destiny.
As Gemma tries to sort out what to do, one of her suitors is murdered, leaving Rory to wonder if a black cat has crossed Gemma's path. Is Rory's friend guilty of murder--or is she just having a run of bad luck?
