Book 1: The Hidden Gate
Meredith has recently re-opened her late husband’s detective agency, and named it Magnolia Investigations. Still recovering from her near-fatal heart attack and feeling anxious about this business decision, Meredith is inspired to ask her friend and retired criminal court judge Julia to become her partner. Meredith feels that this is God’s way of helping her through a difficult time in her life. Julia agrees and then quite accidentally hands them their very first case – a rusted key found in the aftermath and cleanup of a fire that broke out in their office.
When a safe is found in the wall during renovations, they finally find the lock the key belongs to. The safe contains unusual contents — a collection of artifacts and keepsakes that may be related to the unsolved disappearance of a young girl 64 years ago. As Meredith and Julia try to figure out the origin and meaning of this odd collection of treasures, they are unexpectedly caught up in a decades-old mystery that someone desperately wants to keep buried.
