Maggie was slowly becoming unsatisfied with Sunnyside, the island community in the Florida Keys that her and her husband Jim had been calling home for the past five years. She was hungry for intrigue and adventure and she wasn't getting it at the Bed and Breakfast they owned and operated. Even if it only lasted a weekend, Maggie was in search of excitement. So when her deceased grandmother's old friend suddenly hands her a set of mysterious files, Maggie is more than willing to dive right in and play the role of amateur sleuth. Only, as the pieces of the puzzle are put together, Maggie slowly realizes that this mystery hits closer to home than she would've preferred and it may be too late to back out now. With her best friend and neighbor Sophia's help, Maggie sets out into the town of Sunnyside to uncover the truth about a family tragedy, and gets a bit more intrigue and adventure than she bargained for!

It's all too easy to run out the door in the morning without eating anything, but your first two hours of wakefulness are invaluable to your health and you are doing your body a pretty big disservice by ignoring that! Studies have shown that eating within your first two hours of waking affects the way your body regulates glucose levels in your body. If you eat a healthy breakfast, your body is on its way to processing the food and using it to keep you energized up to lunch time. When you skip breakfast, your body's glucose levels steadily decline and hunger hormones build up. You will feel grumpy and starving until you eat. And when you do eat, your body will be craving sugar and lots of it. This vicious cycle means that without breakfast, you are more likely to increase your overall calorie intake for the day and risk stunting your metabolism.
