Who knew one little kiss could cause so much trouble?
After the death of her best friend and neighbor all Freddie wants is a little peace. A series of strange occurrences leaves her suspecting her new neighbor, Antony, might be more dangerous than he appears. Now in fear for her life, she realizes that no one around her—least of all Freddie—is who they seem to be. Antony’s offer of help might reveal the truth of what she really is and why kissing the dead is such a bad idea. But can she trust him?
