Charlie, Drake and their dog Rusty want a little time away from it all. A cozy cabin, good books, a little fishing at the lake. It's what Charlie needs to relax and enjoy herself.
But the town of Watson's Lake, New Mexico, has a little unsolved mystery. Four years ago a showplace home--tucked away in the mountains above the lake--blew sky high. A young woman died. The owner of the home disappeared the same day.
His gold-digging wife wants the insurance money; his daughter wants him to come home. And Charlie can't resist investigating. As she sorts out the clues she finds that the citizens of this little mountain town--including the sheriff--have loads of secrets. The missing homeowner's life is an intricate puzzle and Charlie is determined to piece it together.
