After a 13-year hiatus, Bella returns home to discover her aunt Lily high-strung and unpredictable, her dad a recovering alcoholic, and her inheritance in ruins.
When Bella learns her uncle vanished the same day she and her mother fled from her father's abuse, she enlists her new love, Eli, to help her uncover the many mysteries of Able Manor.
It's generally assumed that Uncle Gordon is dead, but his body was never found. Could there be a connection between his disappearance and his wife's erratic behavior? Who's the stranger lurking around the property, and what precipitated the downfall of the once esteemed horse ranch?
Corruption and intrigue plague the small town of Bourbonville. Bella's prosperous father wants her back in his life. She sees him as a way to bring her ranch back to its former glory, but the price of trusting him may cost Bella her life.
I liked this story of a young woman whose mother upon her death bed tells her to go to the family estate. When she gets there she finds that people are not who they seem, she gets to know the father she barely remembers and a 13 year old mystery that comes to light and shows their true colors. I received a complimentary audio and I am voluntarily giving a review.
