When Riley and her online writing group are selected to participate in an exclusive writing competition in Cornwall, the student of literature can hardly believe her luck. After all, the week-long writer’s retreat takes place in an elegant manor house that belongs to the Masters family, who are well known patrons of the literary world. In addition, the winner of the competition has the opportunity to present their writing at a renowned literature festival that’s frequented by lots of literary agents and editors. At last, Riley seems to be a step closer to her dream of becoming an author – and she will finally get to meet the other members of her online writing group in person. But she never thought that someone in the group would use the dark secrets of her past as material for their stories. Every day another story is handed in revealing things about Riley that no one should know. Who is doing this to her, and why? Could Killian Masters, the mysterious son of the host family, have something to do with it? As the stories become more and more menacing, Riley is caught up in a dangerous cat-and-mouse game in which she has to risk more than just her heart.
