Early one morning Claire Malvern awakens to find her husband missing. There is no trace of him, and an eyewitness claims a man jumped off the bridge near the falls in the middle of the night. Keith's body is found in the river and his death ruled a suicide. Claire is determined to prove that he did not take his own life, and she becomes a target. There are some books for which you don't need a bookmark, because you just cannot put them down until you reach the end. This is one of those.

Claire and her husband, Keith sought a new life in the countryside, opening an inn they named for the scenic, beautiful falls that drew them away from the hectic urban life. It is a joy that is doomed to a short life, however. In an unbelieveable turn of events, Claire finds herself widowed when Keith apparently commits suicide by leaping into those same falls.
Yet, Claire is unable to accept this. Determinedly, she forces the handsome sherriff to help her find out what really happened to her husband. This quest is one that will open up secrets all across the town. There are a surprising number of suspects and hidden motives. Only two things are clear, times are very dangerous, and Claire is finding herself falling for Noah, her reluctant ally.

Small towns are filled with secrets and lies. You will be fascinated by the unfolding story that Ms. Harper reveals. The complexity is baffling and intriguing, and the romance rewarding. Neither aspect draws away from the other, but the love story is complemented and interwoven expertly into the mystery.

From Publishers Weekly
An idyllic small town setting is no protection against terror in this tale of painter/interior decorator Claire Malvern and her husband Keith, who leave the pressures of urban life and the corporate world to pursue their dream of opening a rural B&B fishing lodge in the Pacific Northwest. When Keith disappears from bed one night and is later found drowned in the thundering Bloodroot Falls, his death is ruled a suicide by the local sheriff, widower Nick Braden. But Claire is convinced otherwise, and gradually, as her investigations bring ominous secrets to light, Nick begins to agree. Harper (The Stone Garden, etc.) has a fantastic flair for creating and sustaining suspense. By the book's climax, virtually everyone in the region seems a viable suspect, even legendary real-life airplane hijacker D.B. Cooper and Sasquatch. But there's perspiration as well as inspiration involved in building the narrative tension; what makes the author's dramatic plot turns truly work is painstaking background research. This deft knitting of fact and fiction enables Harper to describe everything from wilderness survival to supernatural lore with the kind of detail that convinces readers anything is possible.
