She finds - lying drunk on her bedroom floor - a beautiful, teenaged girl. Reckless, alienated and scared, Clea is the daughter of a prominent local businessman. And she has been using Orchards as a trysting place for her illicit affa ir with a married man.

Despite her irritation, Emily is drawn to Clea, whose tragic childhood so mirrors her owo. And she is also powerfully attracted to Clea's cousin, a man who exudes a dangerous sexual magnetism that bewitches every woman who goes near him.

Into this atmosphere of menace and mystery walks Dev- with good timing because Clea has suddenly disappeared. And because Emily has just discovered that there's a dead body hidden in her basement freezer ...

Bit by bit, Emily and Dev must untangle a complex web of explosive emotions - the ir own included. Together they begin to uncover a network of new passions, old wounds and desperate circumstances.
