Book one in the ROMANTIC MYSTERY/THRILLER series of atmospheric suspense, a slightly ghostly whodunit joined with a love story and the magic of dressage. A revelation to some, the mansion on Springhill Estate in New England has a hidden connection to history, giving the stone edifice a haunted aura. Far out in the rolling hills the estate’s gothic barn glows like a giant wedding cake, chock full of top-dollar showhorses and top-dollar riders. The massive roof soars above a second floor of storage spaces, empty rooms and haylofts. Someone lurks in these spaces, spying and calculating, turning the antique barn into a theater of cat-and-mouse suspense. Maybe it’s one of the elite riders, or one of the coaches, or just a working stiff caring for the horses and cleaning stalls. A hurricane roaring up the east coast brings tropical-force storm conditions, shrouding the 2,000-acre estate and increasing its isolation. A clever trap snares the wrong victim, and that brings Massachusetts Sate Police Detectives Westerlund and Russell onto the scene to root out a killer. After passing through the stone gatelodge of Springhill, the homicide detectives feel like they’ve arrived at another planet, surprised at the cloistered air of the estate. The intended target of the trap, Jane Husted, has to watch her back and tries to get in tune with a sixth-sense she didn't know she had. ESP was not something she ever needed or believed in, but now this talent, if it was real, could help her to stay a step ahead of a ruthless killer. Shockingly, the ESP is also bringing the estate’s murky past out of the woodwork, connecting her with things she’d rather ignore. To add to the intrigue, Brian Canaday shows up as an investor in the estate’s European sport horses, rekindling an old infatuation. A complication Jane doesn’t want to deal with as she fights to keep her career as a showrider and, most important, stay alive and breathing. But SOMEONE really wants her DEAD.
