About the Book:

Introverted young attorney Lilyanna Rivers knew one day she would return to Whimser—the mysterious mansion in the middle-of-nowhere, Texas, where flowers don’t grow. She didn’t know her return would be with a select group of her corporate colleagues to quarantine at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The comedy of errors of the employees coexisting intertwines with a darker backstory of how Lilyanna came to inherit Whimser from the late William, her former college professor and boss.

While the guests at Whimser navigate awkward encounters, romantic interests and workplace obstacles, Lilyanna grapples with her haunting memories of William, her insecurities with intimacy and her attraction to the captivating company vice president. Tensions escalate when the guests investigate a theft and learn that one or more among them are harboring secrets that put not only their careers at risk but also their lives.

Whimser awaits . . .

My Review:

Contemporary Fiction blending current real-world issues with a fun fiction storyline. A cast of characters that will make you think twice about your own co-workers and some extra steam in the Romance department.

And look at that cover! It’s so beautiful!
