|Plot Summary of Web of Deception|
After her father's sudden death, Rachel Penniston seeks a means of employment beyond her small teacher's salary. A widower hires her as a governess for his two young children, Delphine and Derrick. The widower lives in a secluded manor called Talisman, and he is planning to go to Australia on business for nearly a year.
Rachel is quickly drawn to both the widower and his children.
He informs her that the children's somewhat difficult aunt, Verdonia Templeton, will be coming after a while to help supervise and care for the children.
After the widower leaves, his brother, Townsend, visits. Rachel is then attracted to this young man.
Aunt Verdonia soon arrives, bringing some upsets to the household with her demanding ways.
Rachel dislikes the way Verdonia acts, yet tries to remain as polite as she can. More and more of Verdonia's behavior angers Rachel, however, and Townsend seems to send mixed messages toward Rachel, so she is not sure if he truly loves her or is toying with her.
When valuable figurines and other objects start disappearing from the manor, tensions run high. Will the real thief be caught?
