About the Book

The Peach Keeper

It’s the dubious distinction of 30-year-old Willa Jackson to hail from a fine old Southern family of means that met with financial ruin generations ago. The Blue Ridge Madam --- built by Willa’s great-great-grandfather and once the finest home in Walls of Water, North Carolina --- has stood for years as a monument to misfortune and scandal. Willa has lately learned that an old classmate --- socialite Paxton Osgood --- has restored the house to its former glory, with plans to turn it into a top-flight inn. But when a skeleton is found buried beneath the property’s lone peach tree, long-kept secrets come to light, accompanied by a spate of strange occurrences throughout the town. Thrust together in an unlikely friendship, united by a full-blooded mystery, Willa and Paxton must confront the passions and betrayals that once bound their families --- and uncover the truths that have transcended time to touch the hearts of the living.
