After running from her past for so long, Harper Brown is finally in a good place. She’s renovating a beautiful old home in Savannah, has lined up a dream job appraising Civil War antiquities, and is falling in love with the debonair Nick Chamberlain. Most importantly, her anxiety and paranoia are finally under control. But when her twin sister’s ghost appears shrouded in fog in the square across the street, Harper’s carefully assembled life begins to crumble.
It’s time. The warning has Harper questioning everything Nick tells her. He does seem to be rushing their engagement. Digging deeper reveals a decade-old murder and an ex-wife in a coma after falling down a grand staircase. But was it an accident as he claims, or was she pushed? And what does the cryptic note wedged in Harper’s window mean?
