During their stay, Lexi falls head-over-heels for Gabe, the dark and mysterious guy who lives across the street and goes to the same high school that Austin went to. Lexi’s Aunt Violet and Uncle Tommy insist on her staying away from him due to his violent behavior and instead urge her to pursue a relationship with Dan, Austin’s best friend.
In an effort to learn more about the cousin she barely knew, Lexi snoops through Austin’s belongings. Soon,
she begins to uncover puzzling details that make her believe that Austin wasn’t really attacked by an animal the night he was killed – details that may already be putting her own life in danger.
After strange things begin happening to her, Samara discovers that the wolf who bit her wasn’t just an ordinary wolf; it was a werewolf. Caught in a web of family secrets, Samara finds that her life is far more complicated than she ever could have imagined.
