The "Hailey Dean Mysteries" are based on characters from Nancy Grace's New York Times best-selling series of Hailey Dean mystery books.

After her fiancé is murdered, Hailey Dean (Martin) becomes one of the country's most revered felony prosecutors. When the former attorney-turned-therapist helps her close friend, Pam, sell the estate of Pam's parents, she falls head-first into a harrowing mystery. Without notice, Pam disappears on a "dream vacation." But that dream vacation quickly turns into a nightmare for Hailey, who's convinced her long-time friend is a victim of foul play. Then, Pam's beau is left for road-kill after a hit-and-run, and Hailey's love interest falls mysteriously ill. It all goes sideways when Hailey's intuition takes over. It's a race against the clock as crime-fighter Hailey Dean puts her own life on the line as she seeks justice and uncovers the truth.
