When Lila Moore inherits her grandfather's house, she finds herself in a small Midwestern town where margarine is never an acceptable substitution for butter, a coveted family recipe can serve as currency, and the friend who will take your darkest secrets to the grave will still never give you the secret to her prize-winning begonias. 

Lila is charmed by the people of Auburn, from the blue-eyed lawyer with the southern drawl to the little old lady who unceasingly tries to set Lila up with her grandson. But when strange things begin to happen, Lila realizes some of her new friends are guarding a secret like its a precious family heirloom. It's a dangerous secret, and it has come back to haunt them. Lila is caught in the middle, and her life may depend on uncovering it. But even if she can, can she stay in Auburn when not everyone is what they seem, and even the house wants her gone?

    Too descriptive of every little detail. This 600+ page book could have been executed just as well with 300 pages. With so much description the story gets lost and it becomes difficult to distinguish between the characters’ dream sequences and reality. PigSnout

    I enjoyed reading this book. The life in a small town, but plenty of interesting characters to keep your interest. Humor and intrigue makes a good combination.

    It took a while to love this book but I love it I did. As soon as I finished it I bought the next one in the series and read it all at once. Just finished it and bought and started the third. I love the character’s and the the magical happenings in this strange, mystical and sometimes deadly small town.
