Now, a year after their wedding, Sunday and Parker—living on the ranch near Lake Tahoe after Parker’s recent term as beloved state
governor—are an irresistible sleuthing team who enjoy the political spotlight while taking pleasure busting the bad guys.
But when Parker’s mom Miriam (Janet-Laine Green) and Danny are suddenly kidnapped on their way to a high-profile family event, Parker and Sunday are immediately on the case—and this time its personal.
Believing they were the true targets of the crime, the daring duo work together to uncover clues and find out why the kidnapper is demanding the release of a notorious hit-man from federal prison as a ransom. Racing against the clock to rescue their parents, Parker and Sunday dig deep into their past to find out their connection to the criminal and as they uncover his identity, they put their lives at stake in a suspenseful final showdown.
