After Skye enters the picture, it appears things get worse and when his computer files get hacked into; he decides to do some checking on her. He dislikes anyone digging into his personal affairs. He sets out to learn more about Skye and her real involvement in the area. Skye has her own concerns with Jedediah. She has never really trusted men and Jedediah is no exception. She wants nothing to do with him or his research. But things suddenly shift when a terrible storm hits and Jedediah goes to take make sure Skye is okay. As the chase begins for the criminals behind the destroying of the fish, Skye and Jedediah embark on events that send them circling for right answers as their paths split then cross again but someone wants to keep them apart.

It is like a cat and mouse game of wits. One thing is certain; Ms. Howard spins a tale that places the reader directly into the lives of the characters.
