After losing her fiancé in a terrible accident, all Emily Gardner wants is a fresh start. A place where she and her daughter, Zoey, can try to heal the emotional scars left behind. A place where she can revitalize her once successful career as a children’s book author. The small town of Lakewood seems to be just that perfect place. The house she bought on the lake seems even more perfect. But what seems to be an oasis soon reveals a much darker side

The longer she stays, the more unsettling life becomes.
