Deborah Knott is the judge in
Colleton County, but the night she goes to the carnival she wants nothing
to do with work. Deborah just wants to enjoy herself and catch up with
reliving childhood memories. Her desire seems to be happening; that is,
until she reaches one of the games and finds a dead body. Deborah soon
finds out that the body is Brazos Hartley, who turns out to be family.
This fact never came to light because one of Deborah's brother's (there
are ten others!) has always denied giving birth to Brazos's mother. Brazos's
mother, Tally, had hoped to meet her family, but not under these circumstances.
While all this is happening, Deborah receives a proposal in her personal
life that will shock everyone.
