From Publishers Weekly:

Sharp and at times self-deprecating humor, robust characters and a finely rendered setting redeem what could easily have been a run-of-the-mill romantic mystery, Robinson's debut. Sage Eliot is a shy, naive member of an old but impoverished Charleston, S.C., family. After spending years caring for an ailing grandmother, who has recently died, Sage is determined to achieve her independence and to maintain the family mansion as well by renting out its rooms. When one of her boarders is murdered, her sister Elise, a pillar of Charleston society, tries to persuade Sage to sell the huge old home to one of several interested buyers. But Sage, inspired by the diary of a distant cousin, feels certain treasure is hidden somewhere in the house, and not even a violent encounter with a shadowy figure in the attic can frighten her off. There is no lack of suspects; one is a handsome yet disturbed young man. The book veers dangerously close to Harlequin romance, but is saved by a first-rate and surprising conclusion.

From Library Journal:

Raised by her grandmother in the house her family has occupied for generations, Sage Eliot much prefers the gentility of the Old South to the yuppification now threatening her beloved Charleston. Faced with the reality of her present situation--a house she can't afford to maintain, no marketable skills, and an odd assortment of family, acquaintances, and would-be suitors, none of whom are exactly what they seem--Sage also has to deal with the new problems of strange noises in the night, mysterious assaults and, finally, murder. While Robinson presents a vivid portrait of a city trying to live in the present without sacrificing its past, her characters are a bit too predictable, her situations too pat in their resolution. This will make a pleasant evening's entertainment, but it's not a necessary acquisition.
