But even more uncanny is her sense of what's going on under
the surface, the secrets a house can hold.

space. She's more worried about what's going on in her own
house in Whispering Springs, Arizona, where she lives with
her new husband, private investigator Ethan Truax. After a
whirlwind courtship, and a dangerous adventure, they've
gambled on commitment, hoping that their powerful
attraction can help them learn to live together despite
their utterly opposite personalities.
But newlywed life is suddenly interrupted when a shadowy
figure from Zoe's past shows up in Whispering Springs, and
her closest friend is put at terrible risk. For Zoe and
Arcadia Ames share a shocking secret. And as they seek to
protect the truth, they must join together, and with
Ethan's help, accept a very dangerous dare.
