He needs Bluff House.While Eli's beloved grandmother is in Boston, recuperating from a nasty fall, Abra Walsh has cared for Bluff House, among her other jobs as yoga instructor, jewelry maker, and massage therapist. She is a woman with an open heart and a wide embrace, and no one is safe from her special, some would say overbearing, brand of nurturing -- including Eli.He begins to count on Abra for far more than her cooking, cleaning, and massage skills, and starts to feel less like a victim -- and more like the kind of man who can finally solve the murder of his wife and clear his name.
