You are cordially invited to visit the new Black Hills Manor Writing Retreat.

That’s how it all begins—with a simple invitation.

For five authors, it’s meant to be the start of a restful week, filled with free food, drinks, and likeminded company.

But shortly after their arrival, things take an unsettling turn.

Broken property, missing items, and strange noises are just some of the odd occurrences that have each member questioning their companions. As suspicions mount, the authors are pitted against each other.

Whom can they trust in a house full of strangers?

With tensions rising, the writers find themselves in the middle of their own mystery. Death, terror, and despair are common elements in their books, but at Black Hills Manor, the murders being plotted are their own. 


Death comes naturally to the five authors attending what should be a quiet retreat. Natural when it comes to the mystery novels  they write. However, their fictional mysteries are about to become all too real to each and every one of them. Kill or be killed. What will it be for each of them? Tragically, they are all soon to find out.

After five authors have received an invitation to the Black Hill Manor Writing Retreat, all expenses included, what could go wrong?  First a stranger is spotted outside a window at night. Then one of the authors noted have gone missing. Will things get any worse for these authors? Even to the point with one of them possibly losing their lives?


This intriguing story by the brilliant Kiersten Modglin is delivered mainly from the perspective of Blakely, one of the authors, as well as a secondary viewpoint from the past. These contrasting narratives make this book even more compelling. Then, factoring in some well-placed twists in this fabulous story, it was one that was impossible to put down. This compelling read led to an utterly exciting ending. This latest book by her blew me away! If you haven't read a book by Kiersten Modglin, then you are missing out.
