Tate Marlowe loves a challenging puzzle! Not the dump-on-a-table genre, but circumstances usually shrugged off as mere coincidence. While walking in Asheville’s Montford Historic District, she discovers an old house that … “exhibited a hodgepodge of styles from Asheville’s architectural history.” Tate explores the grounds, peers into every window that she can reach, curses those too high and imagines herself directing sumptuous dinner parties from the grand kitchen. Bestowing a final glance of admiration, Tate notices a significant resemblance between the grand door and the door of her small house in Asheville’s working section. Mere coincidence? Not to Tate!
