Will Sarah be able to put back on her detective hat and outwit and clever adversary, or will she become victim to a poison plot that involves murder for power?
Detective Sarah Garland is happy that a harsh winter in Alaska has ended and spring has arrived. The joy of spring, she hopes, will take away the difficult battles she faced during the winter months. What could go wrong with fresh, warm air dancing around her small town, waking up sleeping animals and beautiful flowers? Surely all of the criminals would remain frozen in the winter, right, allowing spring to sing and hope to rinse the cold off itself and begin anew.
But while shopping for clothes at the local merchant store with her best friend Amanda, Sarah is approached by Andrew, the new Chief of Police, and is told a hunter was found dead on an old hiking trail north of town. The hunter, it seems, died of exposure to the elements and no foul was suspected. Sarah is simply asked to help deal with the hunter's family who was on their way up to Alaska from Los Angeles. She agrees, thinking that the case would be simple to manage.
But when hidden answers begin to surface, Sarah is soon thrust into a dangerous case filled with a deadly enemy determined to destroy the lives of two innocent people. Will Sarah be able to put back on her detective hat and outwit and clever adversary, or will she become victim to a poison plot that involves murder for power?
