After the veterinary hospital where she worked burns to the ground, Rylie takes a summer job as a part-time caretaker at an old Lake Tahoe estate turned B & B called Whitaker Cottages while she tries to figure out what to do next with her life.
Then just a few days after she arrives in Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City bakery owner Colin Matthews is found dead in a secret tunnel that runs under the cottages. When Detective Felton informs Rylie that they found a note in Colin’s pocket with her name and cell phone number on it, she’s shocked. She’d only just met Colin. How did he get her cell phone number? Is she now on the suspect list?
With her golden retriever Bella by her side and the help of friends both old and new, Rylie works to find the evidence needed to clear her name. As her search continues, she discovers clues to the mystery in unlikely locations around the lake, and the list of suspects grows.
