Successful children's book author Nora is headed home to a small cabin in Idyllwild to settle the estate of her recently deceased grandmother. At first, the solitude helps in penning the newest book in her popular 'Veronica' series, but returning to her childhood home isn't an entirely pleasant affair. There are people -- and memories -- that Nora was anxious to leave behind when she moved away years ago. As Nora struggles with facing the dark history she tried to forget, her new friend Peyton is a ray of hope, a free-spirited wild child who convinces Nora to rent out a room in the cabin. Peyton seems to be just what the doctor ordered... until Nora realizes that people from her past are beginning to disappear. People she's told Peyton secrets about. It isn't long before tensions in the cabin build, and Nora has to face the harsh reality that her new roommate might be dangerous... and that Peyton's idea of cleaning up Nora's past could be deadly.
