They''re an unlikely couple: Lucky Smith, passionate
environmentalist and old-time hippie, and Paul Keller, chief
constable of Trafalgar, British Columbia. Their weekend getaway to
a Scottish-inspired castle in the Rocky Mountains is a chance to
explore their fledgling late-in-life relationship and indulge
themselves at the famous Banff Springs Hotel.
Trouble interferes when Lucky, strong willed and sometimes too
stubborn for her own good, stands up to two bullies in the local
coffee shop. To his horror, Paul recognizes one of the young men as
his estranged son, Matt.
In the early hours of the following morning, a frantic Matt
calls his father for help. Lucky and Paul arrive to find a body on
the apartment floor, but Matt has gone.
Matt Keller is an experienced wilderness adventurer. All signs
indicate that he has escaped into the backcountry. To Sergeant
Eddie Blechta of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, running is all
the proof of guilt he needs. Paul Keller can do nothing but watch
the investigation from a distance, terrified that Blechta is
Lucky''s daughter, Constable Molly Smith of the Trafalgar City
Police, abandons her chaotic Thanksgiving kitchen to offer her mom
support. She has no intention of meddling in the police
investigation, but she is as good in the wilderness as Matt,
and when his sad, shy girlfriend asks for her help, Molly
finds herself not only interfering but putting herself on the wrong
side of Edward Blechta.
