Cici’s dream of an idyllic vacation at her grandparent’s lakeside cottage is shattered when he learns that Brody, the older brother of a boy she likes, has been convicted of murdering a girl who had also lived in the community. Sure that Brody is innocent, Cici searches for the real killer and, in the process, discovers a complicated web of lies and cover-ups that places her in jeopardy, too.
Lewis and Alison’s vacation should be lots of fun. Driving to Yellowstone in a motor home, seeing all the fantastic sights, getting to know their new neighbors…the trip should be a blast. It turns out to be anything but.

Could they have something to do with the one-hundred-dollar bills little Billy Rupe keeps finding in the motor home? Lewis is afraid the answer is yes—and he should be.
