About the Book



The Blue Ridge Madam was built by Willa Jackson's great-great-grandfather and was once the finest home in Walls of Water, North Carolina. Willa learns that an old classmate--socialite Paxton Osgood--has restored the house to its former glory, with plans to turn it into a topflight inn. But after a skeleton is found buried beneath a peach tree, long-kept secrets come to light.



Book Synopsis



NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - "[Sarah Addison Allen] juggles small-town history and mystical thriller, character development and eerie magical realism in a fine Southern gothic drama."--Publishers Weekly

It's the dubious distinction of thirty-year-old Willa Jackson to hail from a fine old Southern family of means that met with financial ruin generations ago. The Blue Ridge Madam--built by Willa's great-great-grandfather and once the finest home in Walls of Water, North Carolina--has stood for years as a monument to misfortune and scandal. Willa has lately learned that an old classmate--socialite Paxton Osgood--has restored the house to its former glory, with plans to turn it into a top-flight inn. But when a skeleton is found buried beneath the property's lone peach tree, long-kept secrets come to light, accompanied by a spate of strange occurrences throughout the town. Thrust together in an unlikely friendship, united by a full-blooded mystery, Willa and Paxton must confront the passions and betrayals that once bound their families--and uncover the truths that have transcended time to touch the hearts of the living.
