From NEW YORK TIMES and USA Today bestselling author Colleen Gleason….

When young, barely-employed Fiona Murphy inherits a small antiques shop from an old man she met only once, she’s filled with surprise, confusion and delight – and a little bit of terror at having a new responsibility in a life she prefers to be free and easy.

Gideon Nath, III, is the stiff and oh-so-proper attorney who helps settle Fiona’s inheritance, and despite her quirkiness and fascination with all things New Age, he finds himself attracted to this fun, sexy woman.

As Fiona takes over ownership of the quaint shop, odd things begin to happen. Lights come on and off by themselves, even when they are unplugged…and there is a chilly breeze accompanied by the scent of roses even when the windows are closed.

After she finds an unpleasant surprise in one of the shop’s closets, scares off an intruder in the store, and uses her skill at palmistry to read Gideon’s future–of which she appears to play a part–Fiona begins to realize that her free and easy life is about to change…whether she wants it to or not.

If you love Dharma & Greg or romance novels with a hint of the supernatural like those by Mary Stewart, Barbara Michaels, and Antoinette Stockenberg, you’ll love this new take on a modern gothic romance!

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

If you like your romances fun and with a little mystery, plus some supernatural events, you’ll enjoy this book. Recommended.


I loved The Shop of Shades and Secrets. It had a satisfying mystery, a great romance, and lots of appealing secondary characters.


I really enjoyed this story. Good cast of colorful characters and I really liked Fiona. Nice cozy mystery with a warm romance and of course a touch of paranormal. My favorite kind of story.


I loved this author’s Gardella series and thought I would try this title by her. I’m very glad I did. A little bit Nancy Drew, a little bit Amanda Quick, all Colleen Gleason’s voice. The heroine was strong and whimsical at the same time, and the interplay between Gideon and Fiona was very sweet.


If you like gothic romances, you’ll love The Shop of Shades and Secrets. This modern gothic takes place in a shop. Enjoyable characters, a twisting story, and a romance make for a great read. I’ve bought the next book, The Cards of Life and Death and can’t wait to read it.
