The House on Morgan Street is full of secrets and lies that have
come to the forefront after the death of the Abbott family matriarch. A
scramble for hidden wealth ensues, and the bodies began to appear. Nothing is
what it seems to be. Many people have come and gone from the mansion on Morgan
Street over the past 100 years, but it's what won't stay buried that brings a
killer and his murderous greed to town.
The protagonist is Natalie, descended from a family of housemaids.
She has created a safe, but very limited world for herself. When Lydia, the
last living member of the Abbott family, comes home to Coventry, Minnesota for
her mother's funeral, she has a secret that will take Natalie out of her small
world and into a firestorm of secrets, lies, and murder.
Some of the stories of Natalie's family, along with observations
of the past, are told through excerpts from journals and letters. The truth is
dangerous and upends the lives of present day Abbott family members and Natalie
herself. Her lover James, the police chief, must balance his concern and
love for Natalie with the pursuit of a dangerous and cunning villain whose
identity is unknown for much of the storyline. The romance between Natalie and
James is one of rekindled love that makes them stronger and yet vulnerable at
the same time. They fight to be together and to stay alive.
