A battered package turns up in a prop mailbox on the set of a Denver-based commercial, prompting Oliver O' Toole (Mabius), strait-laced leader of a team of postal detectives, to open an investigation to track down its intended recipient. Working closely with technophile Shane McInerney (Booth), free-spirited "girl next door" Rita Haywith (Lowe) and research expert Norman Dorman (Gustafson), Oliver learns that the package contains a bucket list, apparently meant to reach someone nearing life's end. But before Oliver can immerse himself in the investigation, Shane - who shares a blossoming romance with Oliver - convinces him to take an uncharacteristic break from his work and join his father, Joe, on a rustic camping excursion. Meanwhile, Norman and Rita embark on an out-of-state road trip, attempting to deliver the lost package to its rightful destination.

After plunging into the water, she quickly gets caught in a strong current and is swept to sea - only to be rescued by a handsome stranger (Blucas). After Ellen recovers, she sets out on her grandmother's mission and unravels the mysterious love story her grandmother left behind.

San Francisco homicide detective Maggie Price (Burns) and former, world-class chef Henry Ross (Neal) are on the case once again. The crime-solving odd couple investigates the murder of Henry's friend, a well-known local chef found dead in his kitchen. As they begin to unravel an old family secret, Maggie has to stay one step ahead of a mysterious man in the shadows who appears to be stalking her, while her blossoming relationship with Henry is threatened by the arrival of an ex-love from Maggie's past.

Hailey finds herself invested in uncovering the truth and is aided by her two secret weapons: telegenic good looks and a generous supply of charm.
