“Saucy, sexy, and suspenseful. A must-read!” —Liliana Hart

"Fun and exciting romance...with a ghostly touch. Nancy Drew for grown-ups!” —Mara Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author

This book isn’t as creepy as it looks! It’s funny, sexy, suspenseful and a little spooky. Think Nancy Drew all grown up, meeting a sexy, oh-so-proper attorney who needs to loosen up a little—and inheriting a haunted antiques shop!

When Fiona Murphy inherits a small antiques shop from an old man she met only once, she’s filled with surprise, confusion and delight—and a little bit of terror at having a new responsibility in a life she prefers to be free and easy.

As she takes over ownership of the quaint shop, odd things begin to happen. Lights come on and off by themselves, even when they are unplugged…and there is a chilly breeze accompanied by the scent of roses even when the windows are closed.

H. Gideon Nath, III, is the stiff and oh-so-proper attorney who helps settle Fiona’s inheritance, and despite her flightiness and fascination with all things New Age, he finds himself attracted to her against his better judgment.

After she finds an unpleasant surprise in one of the shop’s closets, scares off an intruder in the store, and uses her skill at palmistry to read Gideon’s future--of which she seems to be a part--Fiona begins to realize that her free and easy life is about to change…whether she wants it to or not.

If you love Barbara Michaels, Mary Stewart, Eve Silver, or Antoinette Stockenberg, you'll enjoy this taken on a modern gothic romance.
