"...there's nothing better than a book by Colleen Gleason!" —#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr

From NEW YORK TIMES and USA Today bestselling author Colleen Gleason.... When Fiona Murphy inherits a small antiques shop from an old man she met only once, she's filled with surprise, confusion and delight – and a little bit of terror at having a new responsibility in a life she prefers to be free and easy.

Gideon Nath, III, is the stiff and oh-so-proper attorney who helps settle Fiona's inheritance, and despite her quirkiness and fascination with all things New Age, he finds himself attracted to this fun, sexy woman. As Fiona takes over ownership of the quaint shop, odd things begin to happen. Lights come on and off by themselves, even when they are unplugged...and there is a chilly breeze accompanied by the scent of roses even when the windows are closed.

After she finds an unpleasant surprise in one of the shop's closets, scares off an intruder in the store, and uses her skill at palmistry to read Gideon's future—of which she appears to play a part—Fiona begins to realize that her free and easy life is about to change...whether she wants it to or not.

If you love the comedy of opposites attract in Dharma & Greg or romance novels with a hint of the supernatural like those by Mary Stewart, Barbara Michaels, and Antoinette Stockenberg, you'll love this new take on a modern gothic romance!
