When Claire Pynchon comes to Forest Grove, she causes more excitement than the sleepy town has seen in years. Beautiful and elegant, Claire is the long-absent heiress to Scanlon Manor. Her arrival heralds a new golden age for the historic estate, and makes her an instant celebrity to the locals.
Chief of police Tom Callahan falls under Claire's spell, like everyone else in town. But when a 20-year-old murder case rears its head, Tom must confront painful revelations from his past ... and an agonizing question about the woman he's now hopelessly in love with: is she who she claims to be?
By turns sensual, suspenseful, and romantic, The Lady of the Manor will linger in your mind long after the last page is read.
