That house in that neighborhood for that price? Claire Marshall thought she'd hit the jackpot. Her company would restore the old house to its previous glory and sell it at a huge profit. She hadn't counted on the runaway girl hiding in the upstairs bedroom, the brutal gang chasing her, or the angry ghost who may or may not be keeping the gang at bay.
The neighbors are delighted that someone is fixing up the neighborhood eyesore and happy to share what they know about the ghost. Her name is Dorcas, and she died after falling down the stairs. How she happened to fall is a mystery. The little girl whose memory holds the key is now middle-aged, her mind irreparably damaged by a lobotomy.
Claire's business partner wants to write off their investment and walk away, her workers don't want to go inside, but Claire doesn't believe in ghosts or in giving up without a fight.
Another, bigger battle she faces involves her heart. Dare she trust the man she loves? Tony is back on the Grand Prix circuit, driving in a racing season marred by fatal accidents, and, according the media, finding comfort in the arms of another woman.
Just when Claire thinks that things can't get worse, they do.

I love it when a book surprises me as well as meeting my expectations, and this one did both. Because I'd already read the first two novels of this trilogy, I was pretty sure "A House of Her Own" would be a well-written, gripping page-turner, and I wasn't disappointed. Dusenbury's writing is graceful, intelligent, and easy to read, and her sense of pacing is outstanding. As with both of her other books, I literally couldn't put this one down, even when I wanted to do that so I could make it last longer. The story was also surprising, and I'm not going to say HOW it was surprising because I don't want to spoil the surprises. I'll give a couple of hints, though: it IS a murder mystery, but a very unusual one. Also, like the other two books in the trilogy, there's a romance involved – but the romance turns out differently than I'd expected. And much to my satisfaction. Warning: DO NOT read the last page until you get to it! The trilogy as a whole ("A Perfect Victim," "Secrets, Lies, and Homicide," and now "A House of Her Own") is made up of three stand-alone mysteries. But the three books follow their main character, Claire Marshall, through a period of great change in her life, so to really enjoy them it would be a good idea to read them in order.
