When Lila Moore inherits her grandfather's house, she finds herself in a small Midwestern town where margarine is never an acceptable substitution for butter, a coveted family recipe can serve as currency, and the friend who will take your darkest secrets to the grave will still never give you the secret to her prize-winning begonias. 

Lila is charmed by the people of Auburn, from the blue-eyed lawyer with the southern drawl to the little old lady who unceasingly tries to set Lila up with her grandson. But when strange things begin to happen, Lila realizes some of her new friends are guarding a secret like its a precious family heirloom. It's a dangerous secret, and it has come back to haunt them. Lila is caught in the middle, and her life may depend on uncovering it. But even if she can, can she stay in Auburn when not everyone is what they seem, and even the house wants her gone?

    I feel like it left me wanting. It didn’t seem finished to me, such as what was in the lake. I really enjoyed the book. The writing was good with descriptions and details.
  • I Loved It!

    By KWJN
    This is a great book! You really can’t tell a book by its cover. By the cover I would have not read it. It was the title that got me. The story is simple but it has great parts that turn eerie. It has its surprises but the flow makes it easy to follow. It does become a page turner toward the end. I’m glad there are more books in the series!
  • Good read

    By Island52
    It was a good read with a few too many unexplained twists & turns as if it couldn’t decide between being a mystery or a horror story

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The plot is clever and I didn’t figure it out. The recipes are inviting and I look forward to cooking them.

    Terrific! I loved this book. It's very well written, the characters are very well developed and described so that I feel as if I know them. It leaves just enough mystery to make me want more but not so much that I'm frustrated. I look forward to reading the other books.

    I assumed from the title that it was a comedy. It was a very pleasant surprise. Clever plot development and surprises.
