If you are a fan of romantic suspense, you have come to the right place. Black Willow is my debut novel, but there are more books on the way! Stay tuned for the upcoming release date for The Darkness Beneath

Black Willow

Things aren’t always what they seem


When her twin sister mysteriously dies, New York Times bestselling author Nora Bassett’s world is turned upside down. Lost in grief, she is shocked to find that she’s the sole beneficiary of Black Willow, the giant Victorian farmhouse in Pennsylvania Dutch Country her sister had been in the process of renovating into an inn. Desperate to feel close to her sister, Nora moves her writing career into Black Willow to continue renovations at the side of Ben Whitfield, the rugged, handsome contractor her sister had hired. But as strange things begin to happen, Nora finds herself drawn into the mystery of the house and the dark secrets it holds—unaware of just how close danger lurks.


A dream job. That’s what contractor Ben Whitfield thought when he agreed to take on the renovation of the monstrous house. A dream job, that is, until he stumbles across the dead body of the young woman who’d hired him. And when an exact replica of her shows up as the new owner, Ben is shocked at how quickly he finds himself falling in love with the beautiful stranger. But as the grand opening of the inn nears, danger escalates. Ben suspects that Nora’s life may be in jeopardy—and he will do anything to protect her.

Together, the two must race to uncover the truth that remains hidden beneath Black Willow Farm’s beautiful, dark surface before it’s too late…

Black Willow is a riveting, atmosperic mystery loaded with romance, realistic characters and secrets in a haunting setting. Offutt writes like such a pro! I can hardly believe this is her debut!
