Winter quarter of grad school has Pepper living and breathing Brontë sisters. When a body is found near the mysterious mansion on the hill, Pepper is too close to the victim for comfort… and perhaps the killer.
Pepper’s interest in the case becomes an obsession when Alex is threatened. Between mysterious notes, long-buried secrets, and that feeling someone is watching, Pine Crest starts to feel a whole lot like the gothic moors of Wuthering Heights. The line between love and obsession is as thin as a knife’s blade—literally—and it’s up to Pepper to find the killer before they strike again.
Readers, this is the fifth book in a literary-themed cozy series. If you get a shiver of excitement after reading an eerie scene and prefer books with a few brooding men hanging around the moors—ahem—town, you’re going to love this creepy winter mystery. And if the Brontës aren’t your jam, no worries, each book features a different classic author. 😉 Happy reading!
