Twenty-five years ago she was young, beautiful, näive, and an internationally known supermodel. Today Eliza Winters is no longer young, and definitely not näive, but still beautiful and married to Trafalgar City Police Sergeant John Winters. When Steiner is found dead in his luxury hotel room, shot once in the back of the head, suspicion falls upon Eliza. John Winters is forced into the most difficult decision of his life: loyalty to his job or to his wife. As the RCMP dig into the secrets of both Steiner and Eliza, John Winters slowly comes to realize that he doesn't know the woman to whom he has been married for twenty-five years as well as he thought he did. Unable to help the Sergeant, Constable Molly Smith has her own troubles: a series of B & Es has the peaceful town in an uproar, her overprotective Mountie boyfriend is fighting with her colleagues, and a vengeful stalker is watching her every move. When tragedy strikes at the heart of her own family, Molly can't even turn to her mother, Lucky, for help

Cathy Lindsay--a middle-aged, middle-class, small town resident, high school English teacher, and married mother of two--is an unlikely candidate for a murderous ambush. As Sergeant John Winters begins his investigation, he finds himself frustrated at every turn. Why would anyone want to kill Cathy? She was a respected teacher in an apparently solid marriage and living a quiet life. Winters, with the help of young Constable Molly Smith, digs deep into the Lindsays' marriage and friendships, searching for a suspect and motive, but one thought continually arises in his mind: Is it possible this was a random killing or a case of mistaken identity? If so, who did it? And who in this small, close-knit community might be next? Meanwhile, on the double-black-diamond runs of the Blue Sky resort, Molly Smith meets a handsome, charming man, one who's as good a skier as she is, and she realizes it's time to make some serious decisions about the direction of her life--both personal and professional
