The first in a brand-new series from New York
Times bestselling author Sheila Connolly!
Katherine Hamiltonâ€™s goal in high school was to escape from
her dead-end hometown of Asheboro, Maryland. Fifteen years
later sheâ€™s got a degree in hospitality management and a
great job at a high-end boutique hotel in Baltimore. Until,
that is, the hotel is acquired by a chain, and sheâ€™s laid
off. When Kateâ€™s high school best friend calls with a
mysterious invitation to come talk with the town leaders of
Asheboro, she agrees to make the trip, curious about where
this new opportunity might lead.
Once Kate arrives, the town council members reveal that
their town is on the verge of going bankrupt, and theyâ€™ve
decided that Kateâ€™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
Walkerâ€”Kateâ€™s high school nemesis.
But a few days later, while touring the mansion, Kate
stumbles over a bodyâ€”and itâ€™s none other than Cordelia. Kate
finds herself juggling the murder investigation and her
growing fascination with the old house, which itself is full
of long-hidden mysteries. Kate must clear her name and save
her townâ€”before she ends up in hot water.
