As Stella Wright's Nantucket candle store thrives, her knack for solving mysteries burns equally bright-especially when a Halloween haunted house uncovers evidence of a centuries-old murder . . .
When Stella's friend inherits a creaky, abandoned home in Nantucket, she knows it's the perfect setting for the town's annual Halloween fundraiser. A deserted, boarded-up building on the property-once used as a candle-making shop-adds to the creepy ambiance. But as Stella explores the shack's dilapidated walls, she discovers a terrible secret: the skeleton of a Quaker woman, wrapped in blood-soaked clothing and hidden deep within a stone hearth . . .
While police investigate, Stella wastes no time asking for help from friends with long ties to Nantucket's intricate history. The key to the murder may lie within a scorching 18th century love triangle that pit two best friends against one another over a dubious man. But before the case is solved, another life will be claimed-leaving Stella to wonder who in Nantucket is friend, and who is foe . . .
