Tori Cannon's life is in chaos. She's lost her job, her grandmother just died, and her lease has run out. Her only hope is to live with her grandfather on Lotus Bay near Lake Ontario and revive his failing bait and tackle business. Convincing him not to sell it is one of her problems. Topping that, her troubles increase when she finds a dead body on the property—a man with spikes filling his mouth. The victim's enemies are a rich woman who wants to level his eyesore of a home and his daughter who is resentful that her father never had time for her.

With no faith from her grandfather that Tori can save the failing business and discover a murderer, all her eggs are in one basket as both her life and her future hinge on her sorting through petty jealousies and deadly consequences to find the truth. Can Tori save her family bait shop—after such a deadly catch?
