Their new home has a terrifying secret…
When freshly engaged Austyn Murphy and Lowell Bass receive the news that Lowell’s parents have died unexpectedly, they set out for the historic Bass estate to handle their affairs and lay the former heads of the family to rest.
Enshrouded in layers of secrecy and tradition, the Bass estate, and the family residing within its walls, give anything but a warm welcome. When the idea of staying in the home permanently is brought up, Austyn witnesses a side of her future husband she’s never seen before.
Late one night, Austyn overhears a whispered conversation, revealing she hasn’t been given the full truth about the world she’s marrying into. And when Emily, an old friend, calls with devastating news of her own, Lowell and Austyn invite her to join them for a visit at the estate.
Upon Emily’s arrival, a confession is made, causing a rift in the seemingly impenetrable bond the girls once had. As Emily settles into their home, becoming closer to Lowell than ever before, Austyn fears she’s made a grave mistake.
Trapped inside the Bass estate under the ever-watchful eye of the staff and her soon-to-be family, Austyn makes another chilling discovery—something so terrible it changes everything.
Family, death, pregnancy, cheating fiancé, money (and lots of it), secrets…isn’t that what everyone experiences when you get engaged? Probably not but that is what Austyn is being faced with when she visits “The Pond” after the sudden death of her fiancés parents. Lowell Bass sure has some explaining to do. Now he has Austyn questioning her whole world and if this is the right world for her to be in with Lowell Bass.
This is definitely one bumpy ride that Kiersten Modglin takes you on. And…who the heck is Celine Mason??? Could she be the key to unlocking the family secrets? Buckle up tight for this one!!!
