When Beth moves into the Wasatch Mountains looking for a quiet spot to write her next novel, she inadvertently allows a stalker the opportunity to get close enough to kill.
Mason and Whitney are completely satisfied with their childless, upwardly mobile professional life. They're surrounded by close friends and are living comfortably in a brand new lakefront home in the Wasatch Mountains. Then, Whitney’s widower brother-in-law, George’s dies in a car accident. Whitney and Mason jump on a plane and head out of state to care for George’s three young children, expecting to turn them over to pre-arranged backup parents after a few days of comforting care.

Suddenly their life is changed forever. Children were never part of the plan. Unwilling to hand the children over to Family Services, Whitney and Mason bring them back home to Utah.

As if things couldn't get worse... they do. One unfortunate event after the other continues to shake their new family to it's core.
