A brand new, hilarious romance from New York Times bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
The dead of winter. An isolated island off the coast of Maine. A man. A woman. A sinister house looming over the sea . . . He's a reclusive writer whose macabre imagination creates chilling horror novels. She's a down-on-her-luck actress reduced to staging kids' puppet shows. He knows a dozen ways to kill with his bare hands.
She knows a dozen ways to kill with laughs. But she's not laughing now. When she was a teenager, he terrified her.
Now they're trapped together on a snowy island off the coast of Maine. Is he the villain she remembers or has he changed? Her head says no. Her heart says yes. It's going to be a long, hot winter.
