Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A voice mail from her estranged sister, Melanie, sends Robin's heart racing and her mind spiraling in full-blown panic attack. Melanie's message is dire: Their father, his second wife, and his twelve-year-old stepdaughter have been shot - likely in a home invasion - and lie in the hospital in critical condition. It's been more than five years since Robin turned her back on her father when he married her best friend. Five years since she said goodbye to her hometown of Red Bluff, California, and became a therapist. More than two years since Robin and Melanie have spoken. Yet even with all that distance and time and acrimony, the past is always with Robin. Now she must return to the family she left behind. As she attempts to mend fences while her father clings to life, Robin begins to wonder if there is more to the tragedy than a botched burglary attempt. It seems that every - Robin's mercurial sister, her less-than-communicative nephew, her absent brother, and even Tara, her father's wife - has something hide. And someone may have put them all in grave danger.
