Abbey Gray, a NYT bestselling suspense author, is burned out. She needs time away from the madness of deadlines and personal appearances as well as her big city life in New York. Returning to her small hometown in Montana to hide herself away, she attempts to dive into her next novel. Abbey hopes the solitude will kickstart her muse but a murder next door gets in the way. The murder stirs painful memories from the past of another murder--Abbey's mother. Can the eerily similar details of her neighbor's murder help Abbey remember the truth about the past before she becomes the next victim? With the storm charging toward her hometown, there is no escaping what's coming.
Sheriff Garrett Gilmore has known Abbey and her family his entire life. In truth, he’s probably been waiting for her to come back, knowing it likely wouldn’t happen or maybe he just has commitment issues. He can’t worry about that at the moment, he has a homicide to solve and a murderer to catch, all with the storm of the century bearing down on Montana. Survival is all that matters.
Abbey Gray stopped at the bottom of the staircase and surveyed the living room of her childhood home. She inhaled deeply. It was almost as if she could smell her father’s aftershave.
She sighed. But that was impossible. Douglas Gray had died a year ago.
Fourteen months ago, to be exact. It didn’t seem possible. She’d just hit thirty and she had no family left. The image of her brother, Steven, filtered through her mind, but he had turned his back on her and what was left of their family years ago after what happened.
Her father rare spoke her mother’s murder after he’d exhausted his attempts to prove what really happened. It was easier that way, he’d said. What he’d meant was that if they didn’t mention the murder, they didn’t have to talk about the trial or the fact that the accused was Steven—Abbey’s brother, the son of the victim.
No matter that she and her father had struggled mightily to get past what Steven had done and to hold together the shattered fragments of their family, her brother adamantly refused to communicate with them in any way after the trial ended. He’d been taken away and that was the last time Abbey had seen him. As hard as she and their father had wanted to believe his insistence that he was innocent, the evidence—an eyewitness for God’s sake—had pointed to him. Still, they had both tried to see him, to talk to him, but Steven had refused. Year after year, their letters had been returned unopened. Eventually Abbey had stopped bothering; her father had as well.
