After breaking up with her boyfriend, 29 year old writer Kate Duvall leaves her hectic city life behind and moves to the heart of the Dales, renting an ancient thatched cottage in the sleepy village of Oakdale.
But when she meets eccentric octogenarian Lord Edmund Fitzgerald and learns of a century-old feud between two families, she’s drawn into a dangerous web of intrigue that exposes a long history of infidelity, corruption, and ultimately, murder.
In the face of intimidation and threats to her life, instinct and the ghosts of the past impel Kate to unravel the mystery surrounding the Last Lord of Oakdale.
Very good. A little confusing in the end.
