When Bernadette Murphy´s brother, Mark, dies unexpectedly, her world is rocked. Jenny, the wife he left behind, skips grieving and goes straight into survival mode. That is, until she shows up at Bernie´s door in tears, holding a battered canvas journal in which Mark - once obsessed with adventure - had listed larger-than-life travel destinations. Before losing her brother, life had been great for Bernie - a new career and a nice romance - even though she wavers on her boyfriend´s proposal and wears her diamond engagement ring on a cord around her neck instead of on her finger. But inspired by Mark´s unique bucket list, Bernie puts her mom, her dog, her best friend´s angsty teenager, and Jenny into a borrowed RV and sets off on a cross-country road trip, sharing quirky adventures and unexpected turns along the way. But Bernie can´t run forever. Will she find a way to let go of the past, heal her losses, and open herself to life´s new possibilities? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kate Rudd.

Private investigator Eddie Shoes is enjoying a rare period of calm. She´s less lonely now that Chava, her card-counting mom from Vegas, is sharing her home. She also has a new companion, Franklin, a giant dog of curious ancestry. Hoping for a lucrative new case, Eddie instead finds herself taking on a less promising client: her best friend from her childhood in Spokane. Dakota has turned up in Bellingham in jail, where she is being held on a weapons charge. Eddie reluctantly agrees not only to lend her friend money for bail but also to investigate who is stalking her. Soon after Dakota is freed, she disappears again, leaving Eddie to answer to the local cops, including her ex-boyfriend Chance Parker. Has Dakota been kidnapped? If not, why did she jump bail? What are Eddie´s business cards doing on the bodies of two murder victims? The key to these mysteries lies in Dakota and Eddie´s shared history, which ended when Eddie left home after high school. As a person of interest in both murder cases, Eddie is forced to go in search of the truth, digging into the past and facing her own demons. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Moira Driscoll.
