After her cousin disappeared without a trace, Christina Wade left rural Vermont behind. Nearly a decade later she inherits the family’s historic inn that should have gone to the missing girl. Compelled to return to the place she intended to forget, she must decide whether to sell or run the family business. An old love lures her to stay as they rekindle their relationship, and she finds herself falling in love again with handsome Kevin McKinley, a conservationist who wants to share his love for the rural setting with her.
Family members challenge her plans as she uncovers their unsavory business practices and the tip of potentially larger crime connections. A series of accidents leads her to suspect that someone wanted her family dead and may have killed the aunt who left the inn to her.
Danger arises when they discover what happened to the missing girl all those years ago. There is a killer in the little town, and he wants what Christina has. He’s killed to get what he wanted before, it's likely he'll do it again.
About the author
Always one to make up a story around a mystery or have my nose in a book; transitioning later in life to publishing these stories is a great honor. I love a good mystery and have always been slightly disappointed if the story did not contain a love interest, so I work to create these of my own.
