â€œDo not think at this moment, Cara Westling.
Concentrate on nothing but saving your life.
You want your daughter to be without a father AND a mother?â€
Cara Westling, a newcomer to the small town of Payton, Idaho, is grateful sheâ€™s landed employment with the highly respected J.L. Larrett. A victim of abuse both from her father and ex-husband, Cara is struggling to build her own self-esteemâ€”and a new life for herself and her troubled thirteen-year-old daughter, Riley.
But J.L. Larrett is not the man people think they know.
One week into the job, J.L. forces Cara to do the unthinkableâ€”help hide the body of a woman heâ€™s murdered. If she refuses, she could pay with her life.
If she obeys, the stain on her soul may be more than she can bear.
