For 100 years, the Tennessee moon had shone down on the Magnolia Inn, the old hotel that Lainie Thorne's family has always owned. Nowadays the place is crumbling to nothing. Its walls hold only memories and secrets.
Lainie had once loved loner Colley Rawlins, but that love ended in blood and tears. Colley had been exiled from the Magnolia forever, but "forever" ends one red-moon night when he defiantly walks back through the screens of the doors of the inn.
The Magnolia is about to add to its collection of memories. This summer it will witness jealousy, revenge, murder... and love.

Loner Colley Rawlins has loved Lainie Thorne since he rescued her from a flooding creek when she was 11 and he was 14. But she is the pampered daughter of the plantation overseer, and he is the illegitimate grandson of the plantation owner. Theirs is a clandestine friendship, at first pure and innocent. Colley's difficult childhood makes him far more mature than Lainie, and he forces himself to wait for her to grow up. She's 17 before they are finally able to acknowledge the deeply rooted love and passion that has grown between them. But Lainie's father hates Colley, and fate sets in motion a series of tragic events that tears the young lovers apart. Three years later, Colley returns to town, older, wiser, and ready to claim his beloved. However, Lainie hasn't been able to put the past behind her. Her guilt for what happened is still a huge obstacle, and Colley has to fight his grandfather, his cousin, and Lainie herself to restore their love. Set against the canvas of a Tennessee tobacco farm and the lazy life of a small southern town, author Lisa Brown skillfully lures readers into an engrossing story of jealousy, revenge, murder, and--at long last--love.
