Unfortunately, the inheritance comes with strings attached— namely Benjamin Nowak, the son of the man who ruined her father. Benjamin is determined to keep the plant open despite Kathryn’s plans to sell it, jeopardizing the main source of jobs in the small town. While Benjamin and Kathryn alternate between butting heads and playing nice, someone is watching. Someone who’s desperate enough to kill to keep a long-buried secret.
“A heartwarming and intriguing tale filled with suspense and emotion up to the very end”. ~ Library Journal Reviews on Too Close to Home
