Berta and Bob Henderson have plenty of love for their children--and enough even for a foster child. When Annie, a young amnesiac found wandering the streets of a nearby city, comes into their home, bad things begin to happen. Mimi Bosarge, the live-in tutor, has a deep love for Coden, Alabama, which in the 1940s was a hideaway for movie stars and the wealthy. By 1976, Coden has been long forgotten. Bob's plans to renovate the old hotel on the Mississippi Sound would bring new life--and returned glamour--to the small, isolated community. As Mimi prepares lessons, she begins to see another child on the grounds. One that looks eerily like Annie at times--but at other times mimics the physical traits of the other children. It becomes clear, this creature, whatever it is, is stalking the Henderson family. Annie begins to display a sophistication beyond her years, and as tragedy strikes the family one by one, Mimi carries the burden of protecting the children. Mimi believes Annie's innocent beauty is a sham, but how reliable is Mimi? For the children, the truth is the only thing that can save them.

Author Biography

Carolyn Haines is the USA Today bestselling author of over 80 books in a number of genres. A native of Lucedale, Mississippi, she grew up reading anything she could get her hands on and developed a love of mysteries, crime novels, general fiction, gothics, short fiction, and horror. For 14 years she headed the fiction department at the University of South Alabama and has been rewarded to see a number of her students publish and do well. Haines is a passionate advocate for animals and the planet and runs a very small animal rescue at her farm where she cares for dogs, cats, and horses. Growing up on ghost stories told by her grandmother and parents, she loves to give her readers "a little chill."
