When Amanda Rittenhouse’s new girlfriend, psychiatrist Sara Orlando, convinces her to hire one of her patients to bake a wedding cake, Amanda can’t say no. The fact that the baker is an ex-con doesn’t really worry her until the wedding day arrives.
Then during the ceremony the baker disappears, thrusting Amanda and Sara into a twisted web that involves kidnapping, drug trafficking, and murder.
Concerned for her patient Tammy, Sara invites Amanda to vacation with her on the Outer Banks, where Tammy’s mother still lives. As it turns out Amanda isn’t the only amateur sleuth in the relationship. With every layer Sara and Amanda peel back about Tammy and her family, the deeper they’re pulled into a dangerous trap.
With Hurricane Bella barreling its way to shore, the pressure is on to find Tammy and uncover the reasons behind her disappearance. Is Tammy just an innocent victim in these shadowy dealings, or does she play a larger role? Sara and Amanda are about to find out.
