With love and humor, she guided him down the path that would eventually lead him to more uscess than he ever dreamed possible. Since Pat's death six years ago, Ford has lived a life of solitude, barely able to put pen to paer and rumors are flying that it was Pat who actually created the books the world so loved. If there's one thing that Ford needs its inspiration, and it finally comes in the guise of Jackie Maxwell-a smart sassy university researcher with hust enough attitude to match Ford's sharp intellect. But it's her intimate knowledge of the story of a young woman's friendship with the devil-and what the townspeople did to her that presudes Ford to hire Jackie as his assistant and to move to Cole Creek, North Carolina, where the story is said to have taken place.

As Ford and jackie work to unravel the truth, they discover a connection between their lives and the past, a connection that not only helps them solve a long-ago crime but offers the promise of new love.
