The Peach Keeper

The Peach KeeperThe Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was impossible to put down! It was a great story - although a bit see through - with a little bit of fantasy, two romance stories and great writing. The character development was strong and consistent throughout. Highly recommend this book if you're looking for a quick and entertaining read.

Synopsis: It’s the dubious distinction of thirty-year-old Willa Jackson to hail 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 and once the finest home in Walls of Water, North Carolina—has stood for years as a monument to misfortune and scandal. Willa has lately learned that an old classmate—socialite Paxton Osgood—has restored the house to its former glory, with plans to turn it into a top-flight inn. But when a skeleton is found buried beneath the property’s lone peach tree, long-kept secrets come to light, accompanied by a spate of strange occurrences throughout the town. Thrust together in an unlikely friendship, united by a full-blooded mystery, Willa and Paxton must confront the passions and betrayals that once bound their families—and uncover the truths that have transcended time to touch the hearts of the living.
