her career and life behind to buy a château in France ~ Château Roufillay in the book ~ where she begins a new life as the châtelaine operating a
luxury bed and breakfast. She is soon swept off her feet by a charming
Frenchman with a shady past who is a guest at her château, while also becoming entangled in an unsolved crime whose string of clues led a British detective to her doorstep at Roufillay. Her once calm and ordinary life in America takes on twists and turns in France and becomes quite dangerous when she no longer knows who she can trust.
