Sometime around the age of 40, Christa Worthington made a decision: Leave her fast-track fashion-writer life in New York, Paris, and London, move to the country, have a child -- with or without a husband. By age 46, she was living in a Cape Cod cottage with a beautiful 2 and 1/2-year-old daughter -- whose father was a married local fisherman. And when she was found murdered in her cottage (her daughter alone with her body), one thing became clear: The simple life wasn't as simple as it seemed.
