This book started out kind of slow but by the end I was sorry to see it end. You really get to care for the characters in Ms. Giles novel and are rooting for them all by the end of the story. A nice suspenseful read if you like the mystery novels you will love this ride of romance and deception. I would have given it a four but it did take me a little bit to get into the story but it comes in as a solid 3.5.
You are in danger. Trust no one. The terrifying words from a mysterious letter echo in Juliet Bucheron's mind. Destitute ever since her husband disappeared in the Civil War, Juliet has turned her New Orleans ancestral home into a boarding house - despite the rumors of ghosts, the whispers of scandal, and the stain of murder. But even more unsettling is Juliet's new tenant, a handsome stranger named Stephen Trevelyan. Wealthy, educated, and seductively compelling, Stephen fills Juliet's heart with uncontrollable longing - and her head with suspicion. Something, she senses, is lurking beneath the surface. And someone is stalking the hallways after midnight. As the danger draws nearer, Juliet wonders if she can really trust Stephen. But as he pulls her closer, she knows she cannot resist him...no matter what the price.
