A picture-perfect coastline provides the backdrop for The House on the Dunes, a sweet yet mysterious and shocking tale. Surprised by inheriting spectacular emeralds and a lavish home on Lake Michigan, Olivia Hobart is compelled to uncover the secrets of her late mother's past. Ignoring the wishes of her controlling husband, Olivia temporarily separates herself from him and her disabled adult daughter to stay at the dunes house and search for the truth which has been concealed from her all her life.

Her pursuit for answers is a challenge of its own, but Olivia's efforts are further complicated by dangerous incidents, proving that what she doesn't know can hurt her. Could someone else lay claim to the missing emeralds? Is her nearest neighbor-the attractive grandson of the house's original owner-romantically interested in her or only attempting to regain what he sees as his rightful estate? Is the house's seemingly innocent caretaker really a pawn in this baffling plot?

With only the help of the clue her mother left for her to find, Olivia brings to light the small town affair that could cost her the only life she has ever known.
