Their first case as private investigators have Sean and Sara McKinley neck-deep in coffee beans, trying to find a killer. With their client certain that her mother was poisoned through her coffee-of-the-month club, it has them setting out to Williamsburg, Virginia, to visit Tasty Beans headquarters. The problem is their New York PI licenses don't carry any weight in the state of Virginia, so it forces Sean and Sara to improvise. They're going to have to brew one robust plot to get themselves on the inside, and they just might have to stir their friend Jimmy into the blend if they're going to have any hope of grinding out a killer.
