Patricia Amble might be down, but she's not dead--yet. As if she didn't already have enough questions about her mother's suicide, Tish is forced to confront one more. She is renovating a northern Michigan log cabin, one in which she spent her childhood summers. But what she finds doesn't speak of carefree vacations in the woods: a torn photo of her mother with the words 'don't ask why' written across her face. Combined with mysterious relatives and a backwoods drug ring, this 26-year-old mystery may be more than she can handle. Tish must put the pieces all together or risk losing everything--including her life.
