Loveda Brown is a governess for a wealthy 1911 Boston family, but things are about to get complicated.

The August heat could be blamed for short tempers and frizzy curls, but only Loveda Brown would know how a dead man landed in her third-floor bedroom unannounced. Or would she? The clock ticks down as Loveda and her best friend Bea try to untangle the mystery while her future becomes dimmer than a sixteen-watt lightbulb.

Can she take the heat? Or will the truth shock her world?

"Dear Kindle Customer,

We wanted to let you know that "Send to Kindle" will soon remove the ability to send MOBI (.mobi, .azw) files to your Kindle library. Any MOBI files already in your library will not be affected by this change. MOBI is an older file format and won’t support the newest Kindle features for documents. Any existing MOBI files you want to read with our most up-to-date features for documents will need to be re-sent in a compatible format.

Compatible formats now include EPUB (.epub), which you can send to your library using the new Send to Kindle for Web, the free Kindle app. We will be adding EPUB support to the "Send to Kindle" desktop app for PC and Mac. 

If you have any questions, please visit our help page or contact our Customer Service team.
