Avery Nolan has a secret. A secret she guards fiercely.
But everyone has secrets. Her mother, who draws pictures of nightmarish creatures. Her grandmother with her padlocked shed. Her student with the pale eyes and brooding father.
Leaving Sacramento after her divorce, Avery retreats to Tahoe with her golden retriever, Basil, looking for change, but as her grandmother always told her, “Be careful what you wish for.” After Basil discovers a hidden clearing with three standing stones, everything that Avery thinks she knows is suddenly upended.
Each move she makes brings her closer to a world imagined only in fairy tales and to unraveling the secrets her family has guarded for decades - secrets that will give Avery more adventure than she ever thought imaginable.

Avery Nolan is striking out on her own; leaving her husband and her work behind to move to Tahoe. She picks up the pieces and along with her dog, Basil, she starts phase 2 of her life. All is not pleasant for Avery – she has a past she wants to keep hidden and she has met the most gorgeous wonderfully odd man and his son.
Her past comes back and mingles with her present and threatens her future in ways that leave the listener sitting on the edge of their chair waiting for the next earth-shattering revelation. What starts out as a cozy mystery or romance mystery is anything but that; instead, we are treated to much more …
ML Hamilton carefully weaves a story drawing in her listeners. A well-crafted plot line with strong characters that make the story believable. Funny at moments, somber for others but intriguing for all. ML Hamilton keeps you guessing until the end – a perfect cliffhanger!
Kelley Hazen performs the audiobook expertly, moving the story along and drawing in the listener with her performance. Her voice is soothing yet projecting the appropriate levels of emotion.
If you like mysteries mixed with fantasy, this is a good book. I cannot wait to read the next book!
