FAUX FINISHED BACK COVER TEASER: Working late as a faux finisher, Bridget O’Brien investigates noises in the dark, deserted clubhouse and stumbles over a body in the men’s locker room … A business woman in her beloved Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Bridget neglected family as she dealt with personal demons. But when her estranged teenage daughter confesses to the murder at Magnolia Blossom Country Club, Bridget finally gets her priorities. She charges into a wacky, reckless investigation to clear her daughter’s name. But is the child really innocent? Dodging police, Bridget blitzes through clues and suspects, managing to stay on the right side of the law … just. Despite family secrets frustrating her efforts, and bonding and redemption with loved ones almost out of reach, Bridget targets the killer amid the March Madness of a UNC-Duke basketball game. The teams battle. The crowd erupts. Is Bridget in over her head?
