Former fashion model, and now tenured professor at a small college, Annabelle C. Doyle (“Acie”) is part of a group trying to establish a wildlife sanctuary on a donated parcel of land. When the donor dies under unusual circumstances, the land endowment is put in jeopardy.
Unwillingly, Acie and fellow professor Ike Adler are pulled into the investigation. But when the donor’s heir is found dead—after arguing with Acie and Ike—they’re suddenly in the spotlight and under suspicion.
Amidst the investigation, Acie is coerced into coming out of retirement to work on a fashion shoot on campus—a shoot that turns into a real “shoot,” with Ike in the crosshairs. Acie may lose not only a chance for the love of her lifetime—she may lose her life.
