Disowned by her mother and suffering from unrequited love, a dismayed wallflower steps out of the shadows and into the path of a vindictive killer…
Through a chance introduction, Miss Daphne Clemens finds herself thrust into a dangerous situation, sequestered on a country estate with the one man she wants, but cannot have: Mr. Thomas Reid.
Following the abrupt termination of his engagement, Thomas expected to remain a bachelor forever, but Daphne’s captivating presence reopens his heart to the possibility of love… until a body is discovered just outside the estate. Thomas realizes someone in the household is working with Mr. Franklin Morris, feeding information to a killer intent on murdering every person in the chateau… including Daphne.
Suspicion is cast and accusations are made. All evidence points to a servant, but when the girl accused of the crime is found to be innocent, Thomas fears he may be too late to save Daphne’s life. Will he catch the killers in time or will their perfect deception destroy the budding romance before it even begins?
