Diagnosis: hepatitis C. It's a shocker for Ember. In 2010, there is no cure and she is far too young to die. Ember needs time to process, so she makes for River Lane, the Southwest Washington summer community her grandparents established long ago. The old cabin holds happy memories, but can they ease the grim reality that is about to change her life forever?
Her focus shifts when an elderly patron is found horribly murdered and his brother dies a mysterious death. The handsome artist Ember hasn't seen since childhood grows to be friend, lover, and then protector, but his care may be coming too late. When a third neighbor is killed and the cops are no nearer to solving the crimes, it becomes clear no one is safe.
