Looking to escape the rain and get a second wind before continuing her apartment search, she stumbles upon Artistic Coffee & Creations. While drinking coffee and eating freshly baked scones, Samantha chats with the owner and learns about The Mystery Painting. Can she solve the mystery and find an apartment all in one day in New Orleans?
