Welcome to the secluded mountain town of Havenwood Falls, home to sexy men, strong women, and neighbors who bite. Discover supernatural mystery, thrills, and romance in a place where everyone has a deep, dark, and often deadly secret.

Haunted by a horrifying past, Octavia Hollows has lived her life on the move. Like all supernatural beings, when she crosses into Havenwood Falls, she sets off the town's protective wards. Unlike with most, the officials take immediate action, recognizing her as the powerful necromancer who, as a child, raised the dead in a gruesome public spectacle.

Still, they give Octavia a chance. Ninety days probation. No dark magic. Achieve that, and she will be granted residency. They even secure employment for her at Pyntz's Butcher Shoppe.

A necromancer working in a butcher shop. What could possibly go wrong?

Just when she settles in and begins opening up to the possibility of a forever home, Octavia discovers a dead body stuffed in the shop's meat freezer. He's nude. He looks like a cover model. And now, thanks to Octavia momentarily losing control of her abilities, he's alive ... again.

Fearing someone would go so far as to kill to drive her out of Havenwood Falls, Octavia teams up with Willie, the resurrected hottie, to solve the mystery of his murder. They must work fast, though, before more corpses appear. Otherwise, Octavia could find herself booted from town along with an army of raised undead.

The Havenwood Falls shared world is a collaborative effort by multiple authors across multiple series all in the paranormal fantasy genre, allowing readers to discover new authors and stories to fall in love with. Each author brings a stand-alone plotline, so they can be read in any order, but there are many crossovers among the stories.

This is my very first Havenwood Falls Novella that I have read so far and I am now wanting to own the rest of them!! This was for sure a shocking story that I never saw coming. The characters were incredible!! I loved meeting Octavia and learning about her powers of bringing back the undead. She was such a joy to read about and I absolutely love Bacon too!! Can't forget BACON!! The story-line was phenomenal!! I never saw the shocking mystery of this story coming until it was revealed. I will admit that I had the clues all wrong, but that is how Rourke rolls. You think you have it figured out and then....BAM!! You are so wrong!! This makes for an amazingly suspenseful and edge of my seat story from beginning to end!! Did I mention my favorite is BACON? LOL If you have yet to grab this story, I highly recommend it!!

Absolutely loved this book. Could not put it down. Loved the characters and loved Bacon. Written in a way that sucks you in and makes you want more. Can't wait to see what happens to Octavia and her pig Bacon. Will definitely be recommending to my friends. A great introductory to the world of Havenwood Falls.
