Inheriting a colonial mansion on the coast of Maine is not the wonderful dream Bethany Carlisle hoped it would be. Complications with her staff, neighbors and her boyfriend, even repeated vandalism, seem trivial in comparison to the changes that occur after she is the target of unexplained gunfire. No one is surprised when she threatens to take some time off to be alone, and nobody is alarmed when they think she has. With all this going on, when Bethany finds herself on an isolated mountainside with a bump on her head, she doesn’t have a clue as to who took her there or why—or how she can get back to safety.
