The quiet, cozy town of Burchill is near picture-perfect. But deadly secrets are lurking beneath the surface, and Emily Taylor be in too deep.
When her school's caretaker is found dead, the elementary school principal is determined to help find his killer. Her search unearths secrets that the town would rather keep hidden. And Emily's investigating eventually draws the police to her home, where she and her husband are hiding secrets of their own.
