When she and Allison go to the dress shop how they find that the shop owner and her teenage daughter have both been shot dead. Subsequently, both Ariel and Allison start having dreams; Ariel from the teenager's point of view and Allison from the mother's point of view. We learn that the mother had recently ended her relationship with a married man and that her daughter was receiving nasty e-mails from someone unknown. As the dreams follow their day to day life in the shop - including having to deal with irate customers - the solution to the murder can only be found when Ariel and Allison combine the information they have.
