After being a victim to a big city mugging, pregnant journalist Joan Harken moves with her fiancé to the idyllic small town he grew up in. As a child, she moved often, so the closeness and friendliness feels smothering, but she reminds herself Deck knows everyone, so they should be happy. She sets about renovating their new house—Deck’s childhood home given to him by his parents who live just down the street—and settling into her new job with the local paper. Everyone she meets seems is so nice, almost overwhelmingly so. They seem to know everything she is doing and entirely too curious about soon-to-be-born baby. Something sinister lies in the shadows if idyllic Lilydale.
