[Walls of Water, North Carolina, where the secrets are thicker than the town's famous fog. Thirty-year-old Willa Jackson descends from a fine old Southern family of means that met with financial ruin generations ago. The Blue Ridge Madam -- built by Willa's great-great-grandfather during Walls of Water's heyday, and once the town's grandest home -- has stood empty for years. However, socialite do-gooder Paxton Osgood wants to restore it to its former glory, and begins renovating it. But when a skeleton is found buried beneath the property's lone peach tree, the town's troubled past is brought to the surface. The two women must form an unlikely friendship to confront the dangerous passions and tragic betrayals that once bound their families. -book cover
