A harrowing flight back from Hawaii leaves newly divorced, Kate Conley, with a throbbing headache and a sassy senior who is stranded at the airport when her ride fails to appear. As a former Girl Scout, Kate feels obligated to help the old lady, whose name she learns is Doris. When a complete stranger tries to force Doris into his car, Kate rushes forward to foil the attempted abduction. After that, what can Kate do but take the shaken Doris home with her?
Thus starts a long string of adventures and a thoroughly unique friendship between two women of very different ages and backgrounds. The would-be kidnapper is just the beginning and Kate soon realizes that Doris is hiding a dark secret--one that she refuses to disclose. An added complication is Kate's contentious relationship with hot and handsome detective Sam Williamson. But with the help of her neighbors and friends from the local library where she volunteers, plus a theater group she reluctantly joins, Kate works to build a post-divorce life for herself and help Doris determine why she was ALMOST ABDUCTED.
