Lady Emily is on the case when, after a chance encounter at a masquerade ball, she finds one of the guests has been murdered. Even more mystifying, the woman was also an actress pretending to be the heiress Estella Lamar. Was the target Estella—or the fraud?

Her search for the truth will take her from the back alleys of London to the dark streets of Paris…determined to catch a killer.
If you’ve ever gone to camp and understand how those special summers remain with you forever, you will appreciate this new novel. As the summer camp on Lake Wenatchee prepares to close its doors forever, three generations of women, each at different stages of their own life now and each dealing with the issues life inevitably brings, will come together to try to save the place they realize is much more than a place to spend the summer. And in doing so, they will also come to terms with the paths that they chose and how they ended up where they are today.
