Samantha Sweet breaks into houses for a living.

A small mural in the abandoned house provides clues--add a fortune in artwork, a bogus will, and a wooden box that gives Sam powers she never dreamed she possessed and it's a dynamic paranormal romantic mystery.

    I enjoyed reading this book, I would love to read the others but I am on a limited budget. Thanks for writing a clean book. I enjoyed it my Mother was born in Magdalena, NM and had heard strange things happened there before and after 1904 when my mother was born.
