After aspiring opera singer Tessa loses her voice in a fire, she needs both a place to heal and a way to keep music in her life. She retreats to her aunt's apple orchard in rural North Carolina to collect folk ballads. But amid the autumn splendor of this isolated Appalachian community, she uncovers an unnerving connection between a murder case and a long-ago disappearance. Tessa gets a glimpse into an almost-forgotten world, encounters a corrupt, small-town political dynasty, and finds superstition and prejudice at every turn.

She's also drawn to Zeke, the handsome but enigmatic orchard caretaker, who shows her that mountain justice is neither impartial nor just. But battling a conspiracy of silence, Tessa isn't sure if she can trust him. Yet somewhere in the mists of the Blue Ridge Mountains, evil lurks, and a killer is determined to keep the past where it belongs--dead and buried.

Review quote

"A page-turner that perfectly captures the lore of Appalachia with superstition, suspense, and sweet love. Mountain beauty hides the secrets of a murderous family's past--until Tessa and Zeke unearth the truth. The Sound of Falling Leaves completes my must-have list for a Southern story filled with intrigue, romance, and unforgettable characters."--DiAnn Mills, best-selling author of Airborne (8/1/2020 12:00:00 AM)
