When Tori Downing takes possession of the abandoned Hamilton estate on the longest peninsula on Lake Jefferson, Arkansas, she avoids revealing her connection to the ill-fated Hamilton family. Is the glowing image that shimmers in the second floor window of Victoria House the ghost of Victoria Hamilton? Can Tori handle moving into a house with paranormal activity...again?
Tormented by a scandal she thought she’d left behind...
Until she leaves her career at the Arkansas State Crime Lab behind, she never even considers moving to Lake Jefferson, but the fallout from scandal gives Tori a very good reason to escape to Hill County and refurbish and restore the old family mansion. She settles into her new life...until the old accusations from her past start resurfacing.
Attracted to a man haunted by secrets of his own...
Drawn together to solve the murder of Jared Crenshaw, Tori and Lt. Grayson of the Hill County Sheriff’s Department dive into a tangled web of jealousy, deceit, and revenge as they attempt to solve both crimes, Jared’s death and the mysterious death years ago of Victoria Hamilton. Grayson’s past keeps interfering with his present, causing turmoil in both his professional life and his personal life. Can their love survive revealing the truth—from both the past and present—surrounding the tragedies at Victoria House?
From the book
He slipped along the dirt floor of the tunnel one slow step at a time. If he met one of Hamilton’s men down the long corridor, his life would end. No questions asked. No one would ever find his body. Hamilton would make sure of it, but he wouldn’t handle the task himself. He had men to do his dirty work for him, never allowing his hands to be soiled with the details of his enemy’s demise. Many men had disappeared, presumably murdered on Hamilton’s orders. The residents of Hill County whispered rumors of revenge and death behind their hands, but no one dared speak of his criminal activities aloud.
