By: Nora Roberts

The #1 New York Times bestselling author presents her latest blockbuster novel: the story of a big-screen legend, a small-town scandal, & a young woman caught up in the secrets & shadows of both...

Cilla McGowan, a former child star, has found more satisfying work as a restorer of old houses. So she comes to her grandmother's Virginian farmhouse, tools at her side, to rescue it from ruin. Sadly, noone was able to save her grandmother, legendary Janet Hardy. An actress with a tumultuous life, Janet entertained glamorous guests & engaged in decadent affairs--but died of an overdose in this very house more than 30 years earlier. To this day, she haunts Cilla's dreams. And during waking hours, Cilla's haunted by her melodramatic, 5x married mother, who carried on in the public spotlight & never gave her a chance at a normal childhood. By coming east, rolling up her sleeves, & rehabbing this wreck of a house, Cilla intends to find some kind of normalcy.

Plunging into the project with gusto, she's almost too busy to notice her neighbor, graphic novelist Ford Sawyer--but his lanky form, green eyes & easy, unflappable humor (not to mention his delightfully ugly dog, Spock) are hard to ignore. Determined not to perpetuate the family tradition of ill-fated romances, Cilla steels herself against his quirky charm, but she can't help indulging in a little fantasy.

But love & a peaceful life may not be in the cards for Cilla. In the attic, she's found a cache of unsigned letters suggesting that Janet Hardy was pregnant when she died--& that the father was a local married man. Cilla can't help but wonder what really happened all those years ago--& the mystery only deepens with a series of intimidating acts & a frightening, violent assault. And if Cilla & Ford are unable to sort out who's targeting her & why, she may--like her world-famous grandmother--be cut down in the prime of her life!
