The first in a brand-new series from New York Times
bestselling author Sheila Connolly!Katherine Hamilton’s goal
in high school was to escape from her dead-end hometown of
Asheboro, Maryland. Fifteen years later she’s got a degree
in hospitality management and a great job supervising every
aspect of the day-to-day operations of a high-end boutique
hotel on the Baltimore waterfront. Then her high school best
friend asks her to come talk with the town leaders of
Asheford, but she won’t say why. Kate can’t cut her last
link to her past, so she agrees to make the short trip
across the state to Asheford.
Once Kate arrives, the town council members reveal that
their town is on the verge of going bankrupt, and they’ve
decided that Kate’s skills and knowledge make her the
perfect person to cure all their ills. The town has used its
last available funds to buy the huge Victorian mansion just
outside of town, hoping to use it to attract some of the
tourists who travel to visit the nearby Civil War battle
sites. Kate has less-than-fond memories of the mansion, for
personal reasons, but to make matters worse, the only person
who has presented a possible alternate plan is Cordelia
Walker—Kate’s high school nemesis, who had a hand in driving
Kate away from Asheford so many years.
But a few days later Kate receives a call from the
police—Cordelia has been found dead on the mansion property,
and Kate is all-but certain that her name is high on the
suspect list. She finds herself juggling the murder
investigation and her growing fascination with the
magnificent old house that turns out to be full of
long-hidden mysteries itself. Kate knows she must clear her
name and save her town—before she ends up behind bars.
