In Washington State Cascade Mountains, Spence Gerhard continues his quest to find his nephew, three years old Cody, or at least his remains. Over two and a half years ago Spence's sister and her ex-husband died when their pick-up left the snowy road, but Cody's body was not found.
Fresh Takes store owner Marlo Malone has the uncanny ability to know when death lurks and feels a fabric in her shop is trying to tell her something, but she prefers to ignore those feelings and remain on a “reality” path. Still she continues to sense that a little boy is calling for her to rescue him. She works on the clues her gift sends her way with little progress.
Spence is attracted to Marlo; she reciprocates but neither pursues these mutual feelings.
