When Rose Engleman is found dead after a thunder-storm, lightning is blamed. But soon Holly Winter starts to think it wasn't an act of God that killed the elderly woman. Was it an act of vengeance? Jealousy? Hatred? Greed? Accompanied by her malamutes Rowdy and Kimi--and her visiting sixteen-year-old cousin Leah--Holly tracks down the truth, and discovers that a retired kindergarten teacher can have a surprising number of enemies...
