Nell Shepard, a hardworking junior executive in the city, is finally taking a well-deserved vacation. When she arrives, however, she finds the hotel less than stellar and the staff more than rude. On a whim, she borrows a horse from the stable next door and escapes to the cliffs to see if they are also disappointing. Nell is impressed by the natural splendor of the cliffs. While there, she decides to take a rest for a while—but accidentally falls asleep, awakening to a thick fog and a missing horse.

She is soon rescued by the unbelievably handsome Ben, who knows as much about the caves as Nell knows about business. It’s impossible to resist his charms, and soon the seaside town and its strange residents grow on her.

Everyone is a suspect, but Nell is on the case. Soon, she comes to realize that if she doesn’t solve this murder, she could end up a victim herself—just another body hidden in a dank cave above the cold ocean coast.
