Willow has everything she could ever want except her freedom.
After eloping with Jonathan, she returns to his family’s expansive Southern California estate to live a fairytale, complete with a handsome prince and beautiful castle.
But something isn’t right at Sunset House. Willow becomes jealous of her husband’s bond with his twin sister, and curious about the family’s secrets that live in the shadows. Her anxiety ramps up with three deaths in as many weeks, and peaks with the discovery of an anonymous journal filled with tales of abuse and imprisonment.
No longer free to wander safely in the estate, Willow has become a songbird in a gilded cage, and she must carry off the performance of a lifetime to protect herself and her unborn child.
A Southern California Gothic tale perfect for fans of Kiersten Modglin and Shari Lapena.
