The # 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Obsession returns with a stunning tale of how blood ties can save us--or destroy us...
The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, and Bodine Longbow does all she can to keep things running, with the help of her siblings and staff and the new hire, Callen Skinner.
But not far away, an aunt Bo has never met lives in her own twisted version of a family, one no one knows about, one she never chose. Years ago, Alice was a rebellious eighteen-year-old who ran off looking for adventure. Now she cowers in fear, rarely seeing the sunlight, her mind shattered by a man who views her--and her offspring--as his rightful property. The Longbows don't talk about Alice anymore. Many quietly presume that she is long dead.
Then a young bartender leaves the resort late one night, and Bo and Cal discover her battered body in the snow. It's the first sign that danger lurks in the mountains that surround them. But the greatest shock comes when Alice returns--and the threat that follows in her wake will test the bonds that hold Bo to this place and these people, and thrust her into a darkness she could never have imagined...
