A page-turning new story from the bestselling author of No Way Out, perfect for fans of Nora Roberts and Danielle Steel! Meet a brother and sister who are drawn into a treacherous mystery through an antique with a dark past, as they race against time to help a single mother and take down a ruthless couple bent on taking control of their family’s legacy…
At first glance, few would guess that Luna and Cullan Bodman are siblings. Cullan is efficient and serious while his younger sister Luna is a free spirit. When the two launch their furniture restoration shop/café—an offshoot of the family’s longtime antique business—in an up-and-coming arts center, little do they know their unique talents may be their only defense against a dangerous betrayal.
When Luna gets a strange sense about a piece Cullan just acquired, the two find themselves uniting to solve a mystery that has far-reaching consequences—never knowing there are some who’ll stop at nothing to claim what they believe is theirs. No matter what, Luna and Cullen know they can rely on each other—and this time, their lives may depend on it…

I love Fern Michaels' books, and this was one of my favorites. Fern weaves the lives of several different characters together artfully to create a story with suspense, romance, friendship, and secrets. The chapters go back and forth between several characters, building each of their stories, but it flows effortlessly together to create a wonderful plot. A rich couple is on the brink of financial disaster, and they need to find their father's will that they believe was hidden in furniture that has previously been sold. Luna and Cullen are brother and sister that each run a shop in the local art center. Ellie is the owner of the art center. And then there is the Marshall, who has worked with Luna in the past. When the table with the hidden will shows up in Cullen's shop, secrets unfold, crimes are uncovered, and a sprinkle of romance grows. While the overall plot is predictable, this is a wonderful story, I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
