On the run from mob boss Tony Sartorelli, Tom Hawk takes refuge in a remote Michigan college town and falls for his young B&B landlady, Beth.
Beth Kessler is fighting legal demons of her own and wants nothing to do with the hunky potential boarder. But when he rescues her from under a fallen china cabinet, she swallows her pride and lets him into her life.
Tom’s cover is threatened by the inept attempts of a reformed crook, a neurotic freshman private eye, and a conglomerate of boarders with their own secrets to hide. His supporters accidentally dispatch several assassins with orders to kill all who stand in their way.
Will Tom and Beth be able to outsmart and out maneuver Tony and his hitmen, or will the mobster finally succeed in silencing the eye witness and his girlfriend?
