On an island haunted by the ghost of a murdered girl, a young wife must unravel an eerie mystery to save her marriage in New York Times–bestselling author Jennifer Wilde’s spine-tingling novel of romantic suspense
With its crashing waves, secret coves, and rumors of being haunted, Greycliff Island is a thrilling and magical place to lonely eleven-year-old Carolyn Dawson. It is here that she meets Grey Brandon, whose family owns the island’s cannery and who becomes her only friend. Thirteen years pass before he walks into her London bookshop. After a whirlwind courtship, Carolyn returns to her beloved island off the Cornish coast—as Grey’s bride.
Not everyone likes the new mistress of Greycliff manor—not hostile, intimidating Burke, the servant who practically raised Grey; not Grey’s aunt; and not her insolent son, Evan, who think Carolyn is a fortune hunter. One day, in the gardens beyond the estate, Carolyn finds a tiny gravestone. That night, she’s awakened by a child’s screams. Years ago, a girl was murdered in one of the island’s caves. Is her ghost haunting Greycliff manor?
When the household is rocked by murder, Carolyn must confront a flesh-and-blood killer—and a long-buried secret someone will kill to keep.
