From the back cover:

Hollie Hund is a world class climber and photographer, but when her husband dies in a climbing accident, she is charged in his death. The painful injuries she suffered on the climb compete with the sting of confronting the details of the accident.

Hollie’s sister-in-law, Katz, helps her through the healing, but the quirky Swiss surgeon who has saved tourists from being trampled by elk can’t keep a secret, not matter what the Hippocratic Oath says. Their friend Mo has a perfect life. Except her kids won’t speak to her, and she lives in a cabin the size of Erika’s closet. Erika’s fashion sense is wasted in Elk Dud, where high fashion is hunter orange and camo. She’s entertaining herself with an affair with her boss, but when he shoots her husband, Grizz, who will she turn to?

Veering between intense and comical, this quirky novel weaves the lives and secrets of four women in the small town of Elk Dud, CO together. And sometimes, best friends are the last to know the truth.
