When Laura Radburn's tenant, Crystal Mar, is murdered, Laura finds herself unexpectedly appointed as legal guardian of Crystal's 4-year-old child. Shortly after she takes Karma in, Laura begins receiving death threats. Is someone after the child - or is Laura herself the target? The appearance of a handsome stranger, Dane Lanford, leads Laura to suspect he may be the father of the child, and a cold-blooded killer.
