Lilly, a successful entrepreneur decides marrying David would be a mistake. After breaking the engagement, her best friend, Sue, convinces her to go away. Lilly sells her business and leaves New York to regroup. She ends up in a small town called Everley Flats, Colorado. When she finds comfort and a new love, she believes all her dreams have come true. Glenn, a hotel owner, is everything she ever wanted. Lilly decides to stay in Everley Flats and rents a cottage at the edge of town. She and Sue spend days shopping to fill it and make it homey.
Sue makes many trips between New York and Colorado to spend time with Lilly, and in the interim, falls for Glenn’s friend and hotel manager, Jim.
Once both couples become relaxed and comfortable, strange things begin happening. Lilly and Sue are nearly run over after leaving a department store, on several occasions the doors of the cottage are found unlocked and open, and they discover they’re often being followed. After many discussions, it’s decided the open doors were due to forgetfulness, and the vehicle that nearly ran them over, well… it was just a negligent driver.
Lilly spends her time culminating her new restaurant in Glenn’s hotel. Sue is back in New York, and Glenn’s been out of town on business. Lilly is alone in the cottage and excited while preparing for Glenn’s return. She hears a knock on the door and races to greet him. When she opens the door, she’s shocked to see her ex, David, standing in front of her.
David forgives Lilly for running away, and tells her he’s come to take her back to New York. He explains how they will be together, and how they will be happy. When Lilly demands that he leave, David gets physical. His assault leaves her not only bruised, but so frightened she finds it difficult to breathe. David tells her he’ll be back for her, and leaves.
Lilly drives to Glenn’s hotel to wait for him. She can’t believe her eyes when she see’s Glenn exiting a limo with a beautiful woman who put her arms around Glenn and kissed him. Devastated that he has another woman in his life, and too afraid to return to the cottage, Lilly runs to her friend Sue in New York. Unable to locate Lilly, Glenn is relieved when he discovers she is safe with Sue in New York.
Now, all the strange going-ons are explained. It soon comes to light that Lilly’s ex, David, has an unsavory past. To make matters worse, he’s been the one secretly following and spying on her. What he plans for her, well… those things were never in her dreams.
Glenn and Jim have the girls flown to Montana and drive them up into the hills to Jim’s fishing cabin. Now, hiding out with Glenn, Sue, and Jim, Lilly thinks she’s safe. Only the police know where she is. She was wrong. When David kidnaps Lilly and drags her into a hillside cave, she understands how twisted he is. The driving forces of devoted love are what it will take to save her.
