Elegance and wealth. Privilege and politics. The extravagance of Butterfly Palace overwhelmed Lily's senses and nearly smothered her painful memories. She pushed away her misgivings...She was perfectly safe in this huge house.

Austin, Texas, 1904: Abandoned by the love of her life and still mourning the loss of her mother, Lily Donaldson has turned her back on the pain and come to Austin for a fresh start, working for the Marshall family as a kitchen maid in their luxurious mansion. The tasks before her are legion, and her mistress less than pleasant, but at least Lily's new life will be, if nothing else, distracting.

Then one night, while serving at a dinner party, Lily recognizes the man who abandoned her--Andy, her liaison from the livery stable, the blacksmith's son--sitting among the distinguished guests. Though he recognizes her, Andy does not acknowledge her aloud, and Lily is left reeling, flabbergasted, and irate.

But before she can get an explanation, the path of the Servant Girl Killer swerves very close to Butterfly Palace, sowing terror among the maids. Having come to Austin to start anew, Lily suddenly feels trapped in a spider web. How can she know who to trust in a house where lies come dressed in fine suits and deceit in silk gowns the colors of butterfly wings?

display_description 1904. Lilly secures a job as maid in the Cutler's famed Butterfly Mansion in Austin, Texas, but her past lurks around every corner. While serving at an elegant dinner party, she recognizes one distinguished guest as Andrew, the love of her life, who abandoned her back home. He seems to have assumed a new identity and refuses to acknowledge her. When Lily is attacked later, is it a random act-- or is it something more personal?
