Amelia is instantly attracted to Colin, who reminds her of her hero, Sherlock Holmes. Colin is not interested in a relationship after seeing the hurt it can bring. His father loved his mother, but his mother was unsatisfied and ran off when Colin was still young. Amelia convinces the reluctant Colin to let her help him investigate the theft.
