"All the mysteries of her heart were kept alive at Shadow Haven...." Newly widowed Gabriella Deveaux left Boston with her young daughter for an open-ended stay at Shadow Haven, her family's Louisiana bayou home. But the comfort she sought by returning to her Creole roots is absent from the start. The estate is in ruins. Her late husband's wealthy family is aggressively pursuing custody of her child. Her gift for contacting the spirit world, the Deveaux women's trait that has always guided her, seems to have vanished. And uncovering the true motivations of handsome lawyer Jarrod Landry has set her heart on a crash course of desire and fear. A cryptic message from beyond soon warns that a dark evil is closing in...someone near her is leading her to grave danger...and only Gabriella can turn the ominous shadows of fear into the light of trusting love.
