Leslie Harris's return home after a decade of triumphs and disappointment resembles a nightmare more than the quiet stroll down memory lane she'd hoped for.

For Provincetown local Deo Camara, the only winds that have ever blown her way have been cold and lonely. Despite a decade of estrangement, Deo can't turn her back on the call of blood, no matter how high the price in heartache. Dr. Nita Burgoyne has her own family secrets, a past so painful she starts a new life in hopes of leaving it behind. She has a rewarding new job and an historic sea captain's house in need of renovation-all she needs to be content. Or so she thinks, until she hires Deo to head up the renovations. They have nothing in common except a shared legacy of betrayal by those they'd trusted the most, and an impossible attraction they would both prefer to ignore. Meanwhile, Nita's new associate, Dr. Tory King, and her partner, Sheriff Reese Conlon, must cope with the aftermath of the winds of war and the approaching fury of a very real gathering storm.
