Moving on should be easier than this

All is quiet at the newly-opened BlackLeaf Private Investigations Agency, apart from the blame game running amok in Fern and Raven’s minds. Tetchiness is alive and well.

When a local hotel owner calls upon them after a spate of thefts threatens her trade prior to the Summer Fête, Raven is hired as a mystery guest. But before she can even check in, a real case comes knocking.

A particularly disagreeable guest has reported the theft of a painting from her hotel safe, and she insists the rookie investigators find it …quickly. She even tells them who took the painting. Yeah, weird, right?

Confused as to whether it can now count as a legitimate case, Raven and Fern must act like the professional they claim to be. But tracking the culprit down is not so straightforward, drawing them into a much bigger drama involving the painting’s true provenance.

A trip to The Netherlands ensues, uncovering a WWII heroine and a vast network of art fraud, but little do they know a bigger nightmare awaits them back in Framleigh.

Just a Simple Little Painting tests the two young women as wounds of the past continue to inflict harm on their working relationship and, ultimately, their friendship.

What could possibly go wrong?

Fern wants a second chance at a normal life

Following a hit-and-run, she has mastered the art of being invisible from the comfort of her wheelchair.

But it’s time to live again.

Months into a new job, and with a reputation as The Ice Queen, making friends hasn’t been easy.

In fact, she can count the number of them on one finger.

When that friend – Nessa – invites her on a girly holiday in a luxury Portuguese villa, Fern’s first panicked thought is to refuse.

But Nessa is very persuasive, so much so that Fern pulls on her big girl pants and eventually agrees.

Is this her chance to prove the old Fern still exists?

After all, it’s Just a Simple Little Holiday.

What could possibly go wrong?

One man’s fight for the truth never ends – even after his death.

When his fiancée is murdered, barrister Tom Finnegan vows to bring the killer to justice.

Constantly demanding updates from the police, he keeps the case visible for years to come. Hopes are raised, then dashed when leads don’t pan out. Eventually the case is assigned to the archives.

He won’t give in. As his first and only love, she can never be forgotten.

Retrained in criminology, and working as a professor, he teaches his students to profile perpetrators of the most heinous crimes. But there is only ever one case on his mind.

At last, some thirty years later, advancements in soil forensics provide the evidence he’s been waiting for.

By now, though, Tom’s health is failing and cancer claims him before he can solve the case.

Ever mindful of his own fragility, Tom bequeaths the challenge to three of his star pupils.

Can Amy, Ross and Liam pick up the mantle?

Time is running out. It may already be too late.

Does justice ever have a deadline?
