Loretta learns that one harmless white lie can lead down strange paths. Little by little, it draws her into a dead woman's identity. Will her deception bring her true love or death. She struggles with her growing attraction to Greg, the rugged attorney, who accepts her as his dead friend's daughter. As she is drawn deeper into the web of deceit, it becomes increasingly clear that someone wants to kill her. The motive, her share of a vast English estate.
Is it Richard, her supposed half brother who has the best motive, or Polly, his doting aunt, with her knowledge of herbs and poison? Could it be Nat, the seductive outsider, who offers friendship. Perhaps it's Morgan, Nat's handsome twin, who romances Loretta. Is it her person or her fortune he desires? Perhaps even sickly Arabella, the twins mother,could be driven to murder to help her children. Worst of all could it be Greg, who has captured her unwilling heart?
Does he return her love or is there someone else he wants. In the entire family, only little Drew and his two beloved dogs appear trustworthy. But even he has his secrets
