Lila Emerson lives life on her own terms. As a house-sitter and writer she is never tied down by material possessions and can live and work anywhere. But when a house-sitting job makes her the only witness in a murder-suicide, life in her own bubble is about to explode. Ashton Archer is convinced that his brother would never have killed his girlfriend and then taken his own life. And Lila is the only person who can help him. As the two team up to discover the truth, they will enter a world of privilege, desire and ambition. A world filled with people who will do anything to get what they want.
