The Shady Oaks Division


2023 NYC BBA Distinguished Favorite

After decades of service, Jill retired and moved to a sleepy suburb. However, her lethal instincts, which made her one of the most sought-after government assets, made it difficult for her to adjust to the quiet life. Her past kept coming back to haunt her, making it hard for her to settle down and enjoy her retirement. The Shady Oaks Division follows Jill as she struggles to fit into her new role. Her paranoia, fueled by her sharp instincts, threatens to ruin everything. But is it just paranoia? Or are they forgetting that her training and expertise are what made her their number-one asset? Jackson, the agent assigned to Jill, is tasked with keeping her from disturbing the picturesque town she's moved into. His own colorful past allows him to connect with her, and he works tirelessly to keep her on track. But will it be enough, or will it complicate matters further?
