"The Bodine ranch and resort in Montana is run by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. Bodine's aunt, Alice, ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don't talk about her. But she is not far away, part of a family she never chose--and her mind has been shattered. When Bo and Cal discover a resort bartender's battered body in the snow, the police suspect Cal. But Bo finds herself trusting him--and turning to him as another woman is murdered. Then the Longbows are stunned by Alice's reappearance. The twisted story she has to tell--and the threat that follows in her wake--will test the family's bonds."--Page  of cover.
