Sophia and Ray are excited about moving into their new home in the Cove, a peaceful subdivision up-the-mountain in Middle Tennessee.
But Ray, the lone detective in the Plateauville PD, is summoned to Florida to testify as a key trial witness.
In his absence, Sophia—a full-time emergency department nurse and a part-time cop—must prepare everything for their move. She meets a group of her future neighbors and finds the women are part of a tight clique.
One of the clique member’s husband is killed in an apparent accident, and Sophia discovers several of the husbands have also experienced serious mishaps. Yet, the wives don’t seem concerned.
As Sophia puzzles out the reasons for the group’s weird behavior, she asks questions, and, in so doing, makes enemies. Personal threats follow. Her car gets four flat tires, and a vandal defaces her new house.
She goes on offense, digging for information about these strange women, while also attempting to infiltrate the group. They get angry, the threats become more sinister, and she thinks her life might well be in danger.
Will she survive until Ray returns? Will they have their Happy-Ever-After in the Cove?
Evil women, compliant husbands, and personal attacks . . . For Sophia, it's just a stroll around the Cove, until it isn't.
