Charlie & Drake just want a getaway, a weekend in a lakeside cabin. But within hours Charlie has found a new mystery. A showplace home near the small town of Watson's Lake blew sky high a few years ago, a woman died, and the home's owner went missing. The case was never solved and Charlie discovers a complex web of deceit. "Another delicious read for the beach." –The Pilot, Southern Pines, N.C
Charlie, Drake and their dog Rusty want a little time away from it all. A cozy cabin, good books, a little fishing at the lake. It's what Charlie needs to relax and enjoy herself.
But the town of Watson's Lake, New Mexico, has a little unsolved mystery. Four years ago a showplace home--tucked away in the mountains above the lake--blew sky high. A young woman died. The owner of the home disappeared the same day.
His gold-digging wife wants the insurance money; his daughter wants him to come home. And Charlie can't resist investigating. As she sorts out the clues she finds that the citizens of this little mountain town--including the sheriff--have loads of secrets. The missing homeowner's life is an intricate puzzle and Charlie is determined to piece it together.
