Upon arriving at the English country home where the bachelorette getaway is to take place, it's clear this won't be an easy weekend. There's no cell service, there's only one landline, and the home is very remote. When mysterious footprints are found in the snow, terror ensues.

The story begins with Nora in the hospital with little recollection of the events that led to a death. She cannot remember who is dead or why. As the story progresses, the reader is swept up in the story of both events at the country home and events that led to Nora and the bride-to-be going their separate ways a decade earlier.
