This is where four cousins dwell -- Wes, Lucky, Tucker and Grady.

These stories take you through the four seasons as experienced close up on foot, on skis, on horseback and up a cliff with a climbing rope.

Detective Tucker's story has become the Appalachian Adventure Mystery series set on Jemma's parents guest ranch near Boone, NC. First the dogs are poisoned, then the horse finds a body. How involved is Jemma in the crimes happening around her? Next her carpentry skills get her in trouble (Perfect for Framing), then the photography group meets at the dude ranch and all of a sudden there is One Shot too Many.  Detective Tucker takes the lead in that last one.
