The fate of the old and decaying Victorian Mansion is being hotly discussed by the residents of Oakwood. The owner died recently and her children have plans to dismantle it for profit. They plan on building 14 homes in the twenty acres. Another group wants to preserve the mansion as a museum. The leader of the group insists the Augusta Mulbridge told her that she wrote a will leaving the mansion to them. The will is missing and the heirs are going ahead with their plans. The planning commission is meeting shortly to approve the destruction of the building. Charley Carpenter will encounter romance, jealousy, greed, lust, corporate corruption, denial, betrayal, gangs, and drugs before finding an answer. This is a fast moving story that has an enough twists and turns to keep the pages turning. The end leaves wanting for the next book. Some sex and foul language may bother some. It can be read as a standalone although it is the second book of the series. I highly recommend this book. Disclosure: I received a free copy from Alibi through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I looked for it on NetGalley, but it didn’t show. Only one previously offered book by the author. Odd!
