Jenny Mitchell and her fellow teachers used to enjoy hiking the trails at Deep Creek, but now they’re terrified to go back. Jenny’s best friend since childhood vanished without a trace, and Jenny’s life changed forever. Not even her faith comforts her now.
Ranger Flint Stockman’s niece, Cassie, is in Jenny Mitchell’s first grade class. Not only does Flint find himself in the middle of a murder investigation, but he soon finds himself falling for Cassie’s teacher. That wasn’t in his plans, but neither are the bodies the rangers discover as the investigation continues. With one teacher missing and one dead, could Jenny be next?
