Two strangers join the Henry family Christmas reunion. One wants Lauren for a ransom. The other wants her dead.
Lauren Henry looks forward to introducing her boyfriend, James, at the Christmas family reunion at Henry Haven, her parents’ Upper Michigan getaway. But when two strangers surprise the family in a home invasion with deadly results, they take Lauren as their captive.
Now she finds herself at the mercy of a man with a mysterious connection to her family’s past. The men are at odds about what to do with Lauren. When tempers flare, she has only one option to stay alive: escape. Meanwhile, James becomes impatient with the police investigation, concerned he may never see Lauren alive again. There’s one sure way to put his fears to rest: find her or die trying.
