A brutal storm. A cryptic message. A life changed ... forever.
Melody de Lyon’s cozy New Orleans bookstore is her pride and joy – until a violent hurricane sweeps it all away. Forced to flee the storm by boat with her ailing grandmother, she wonders how she will ever pick up the pieces of this disaster.
Then, in a fevered state, her grandmother utters a cryptic message that sets Melody on the quest of a lifetime: “Go to White Castle.”
With nothing left to lose, Melody seeks out the old mansion – a beautiful Southern relic haunted by secrets. Once there, she finds Britt Mandeville, the handsome and charming White Castle caretaker.
Fireworks erupt between them and Melody’s attraction to Britt is stronger than she’s ever experienced with a man before, but any hopes of a relationship between them are dashed when she discovers that Britt is already engaged to another woman.
When Melody stumbles across a strange 60-year-old photograph in the house, she is determined to find answers – and the shocking revelations and strange twists of fate lead her right back to Britt.
Can she put all the pieces of the puzzle together, or will family secrets and true love be lost to her forever?

Knocking with her fist, Melody called out, “Mr. Mandeville, can you help me open the door?”
She shoved against the heavy doors one more time in case he didn’t hear her—at the same moment the massive front door popped open and she fell across the threshold, tumbling against the tall, solid caretaker. Literally falling into his arms.
“Oh!” she cried out, her face growing hot when Britt Mandeville threw his arms around her so she didn’t end up flat on her face. “I’m sorry. I couldn’t get the door open. I didn’t mean to—” she stopped, his face close—too close.
A rush of sensations came over her. Melody tried not to think about the man’s hard muscles underneath the soft flannel shirt he was wearing, or his sandpaper jaw, or the pair of amazing lips so close to hers—when she had practically knocked her face into his at the moment they collided.
“You’re fine now,” Britt said, sliding his hands along her arms as he bent to look into her face. “You okay?”
“Yep. I’m fine. Perfectly fine.” Except for her racing heart and a pounding in her ears, she was calm as a summer’s morning.

Praise for the Book
The Owner’s Secret had me hooked from the very beginning. Britt Mandeville is a character who is hard to forget. […] I loved the mystery, the history of the southern plantation, the fun literary references, but especially the friendship and swoony romance between Britt and Melody. I didn’t want to set the book down, even after I had finished the last page. Clean and swoony romance readers alike, this is one book you’ll not want to miss!” ~ Julie C
“I could not put this book down. It is so well written - great, realistic characters, terrific dialogue, some drama with the hurricane, an intriguing mystery about why Melody was sent to the antebellum mansion known as White Castle, and great chemistry between Britt and Melody. Be prepared to be enchanted.” ~ Bernadette Cinkoske
“I loved this book! The characters were well developed and there was a little mystery along with the romance. The twist being that Britt’s ex (or fiancĂ©) was Melody’s sister. I really didn’t expect that. A fun read that kept me interested until the end.” ~ K.M.
“This story has great characters, great location and setting, and great love story. It was a sweet story that pulled into their lives.” ~ Joyeli3
“Love this plot and characters. A must read for this author in this genre.” ~ mima48
