A sexy blacksmith.
A CEO turned innkeeper.
A haunted speakeasy.
And a desperate killer…
Welcome to Wicks Hollow: a cozy town near Lake Michigan filled with quaint houses, eccentric residents, and more than its share of ghosts, murders, and sexy romance.
Leslie Nakano needs to make a major life change—getting away from the dog-eat-dog corporate world, as well as getting past a personal loss—so she buys a large turn-of-the-century mansion in Wicks Hollow, with plans to renovate it and turn it into an inn.
She doesn’t care about the rumors that it’s haunted—she just wants a new life.
But she sure wouldn’t mind finding the missing gems that belonged to Red Eye Sal, a bootlegger who lived in the house during Prohibition.
Blacksmith Declan Zyler, who has more work than he can handle working on historical restorations, has suddenly acquired a fifteen-year-old daughter he never knew he had. This turns his life upside-down when he decides to take on the role of single father.
When Leslie hires Declan to restore the iron staircase at her inn, neither of them realize they are disturbing a spirit from days gone by…a ghost who is determined to see justice served. Until they determine how to put that ghost to rest, neither Leslie nor Declan will be able to move on with their lives.
