Alex Vlodnachek's life would be bliss, her freelance career is catching fire, she is in a relationship with B&B owner Ian Sterling. She's even attending a glittering cocktail party at his sprawling Victorian inn. But, to this ex-reporter, something seems "off." And it's not the canapes. When Ian's father vanishes, the enigmatic innkeeper asks for her discretion. And her assistance. Meanwhile, Alex is having the opposite problem at her tiny bungalow: People keep piling in uninvited. Including a mysterious intruder found sleeping in her kitchen and her grandmother, Baba, who shows up "to help" with Alex's own mother hot on her heels. When the intrepid redhead discovers a body in the B&B's basement and a "reproduction" Renoir in the library, she begins to suspect that Ian is more than just a simple hotel owner. With editor pal Trip, brother Nick, and rescue-pup Lucy riding shotgun, Alex scrambles to stay one step ahead of disaster--and some very nasty characters.
