Stepping her perfect Jimmy Choos into place beside Ben Gallagher’s faded Nikes, straitlaced Philadelphia lawyer Catherine Barrington is surprisingly unable to resist the disarming small-town mechanic’s charm. He’s one of the heirs to the vast fortune left by his eccentric grandfather Max, a bestselling horror writer, and she’s there to carry out Max’s last wishes. Routine enough…except that inheriting comes with a catch: none of Max’s heirs will get a penny until they’ve lived together for two weeks in the shadow-filled rooms of his mansion in the wooded hills near Lake Superior.
From beyond the grave, a letter from Max insists that his death was no accident, sending Catherine undercover—and way out of her comfort zone—to catch the killer. Posing as a cocktail waitress, Catherine soon finds herself trapped with the feuding clan at the sinister Nevermore manor. To save her own life, she’ll have to confront the murderer, as well as her growing attraction to Ben—a top suspect.

About the Author
Award-winning author Diana Miller has wanted to be Nancy Drew ever since she started looking for hidden staircases as an eight-year-old girl (though she’s never found a single cryptic clue for all her trouble). Since then, she has worked happily as a lawyer, a soda jerk, a stay-at-home mother, a hospital admitting clerk, and a conference host. Still, she itched for a way to inject some suspense into her otherwise satisfying life, until she realized fiction was the key. Her debut novel, Dangerous Affairs, won a Golden Heart Award from the Romance Writers of America, and has been nominated for a Booksellers Best Award and an Aspen Gold Readers Choice Award. She has received five Golden Heart nominations, including one for Fatal Trust. She lives in the Twin Cities with her family.
