Kate is working in her garden on a splendid Tennessee day when she is approached by a teenager in desperate need of work. Kate's heart goes out to the girl, Megan Maddock, who looks the worse for wear with her torn jeans, stringy hair and dirty face. Clearly Megan's family has fallen on hard times, but to Kate it seems like more than that. After exchanging a few words with Megan, Kate feels certain that the girl is keeping something from her. But what could this unfortunate teenager possibly have to hide? Meanwhile, vandals have set their sights on Copper Mill, wreaking havoc throughout the town and putting the townspeople on edge. Through it all, Kate is undeterred, and her sleuthing uncovers an unseemly connection between Megan's mother and a string of jewelry heists in Knoxville. As Kate unravels the mystery, she comes to realize how important family and faith are… and that home truly is where the heart is, no matter where that home might be.
