Product Description

From Amazon

When Piper Macintosh learns that her quirky great aunt has sold her historic Cape Cod home to a stranger, she just rolls her eyes. Eighty-seven year old Hannah has always done things her own way. Southern businessman Clate Jackson doesn't understand what compelled him to buy the historic home of a self-proclaimed witch. Hannah claims she brought the Tennessee native to town for her niece because Piper needs a man, and there aren't any good ones to be found locally. Although Piper is embarrassed by her aunt's obvious machinations, she finds herself attracted to Clate. When Hannah reveals that she has been haunted by an age-old family secret, Piper and Clate bond together to protect Hannah from the past. Is it just another ploy of Hannah's to bring the couple together, or is there really danger in the small New England town?

The moment Piper Macintosh heard the screen door bang open and shut, she knew she was caught, and probably by Clate Jackson himself. Read the first page

A wonderful treat of a book to wile away winter nights Sept. 22 1997
By "beawriter" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Night Scents:I particularly enjoy the New England settings of many of Carla Neggers books. In this one we have the roaring ocean (metaphor for sexual tension), a mystery, a handsome stranger, an eccentric aunt, and a lovely, extraordinary woman. Piper Macintosh lives on a dead end street overlooking the ocean in Cape Cod. Her new neighbor is a Tennessean who bought Piper's great Aunt's property on a whim. Something the successful business finds odd himself, because he is not a man to give in to impulse. Clate Jackson is looking for an escape to the pressures back home when he gets caught up in the whirlwind which is Piper Macintosh.Piper is caught digging in Clate's yard for some root her Aunt Hannah needs for one of her herbal cures. Clate warns her not to dig again on his property. The sexual attraction is too much to be discarded by a word and they are drawn to each as surely as the ocean crashes in waves on the beach. Piper leads an interesting, eclectic life running classes from her home and helping her aunt. She has an old car but her choice of transportation is her bike which she rides all over town. Her father and brothers are overprotective. As local contractors and builders, they also have the muscle to protect her. Clate has to deal with them and prove he's worthy of their precious Piper. Piper and Clate are tied to a mystery her elderly Aunt Hannah recalls of watching from her window for her parents, who never returned from the sea, and seeing a man bury something in the yard. She remembers her father telling her he saved a Russian Princess, and something about a Faberge egg but it is Clate and Piper who must unravel the old, old mystery. Weird accidents start to happen and Piper's life is in danger. Together the Piper and Clate try to find the cause of the trouble, and save the elderly aunt from being put away in a nursing home for being looney.A wonderful, charming, delightful story. I'd tell you more but I don't want to give away more of the plot.Be

Delicious! July 23 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Carla Neggers introduces us to the most wonderful and unusual characters. Her palette of people is unique and splendid. It warms the heart to turn the pages of her book. Humor is interspersed with romance and intrigues to create a web of silky substance that ensnares and entertains. The end comes way too fast.

A special author writes a special book June 12 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cape Cod true blue Yankee Piper Macintosh is unhappy that he eccentric great Aunt Hanna has
sold her property to rich and reclusive Texas tycoon, Clate Jackson. This action leaves Clate and
Piper as neighbors. New Age fanatic Hannah believes that the selling of her property to the ornery
Southerner will force her beloved grand-niece to meet her soul mate. Piper, who likes her current
lifestyle, wants nothing to do with Hannah's hand picked suitor. Fate resides with Hannah when
Piper's life is threatened. The emotionally wounded Clate reaches out to help the independent
damsel in distress. As danger engulfs them, the mismatched pair discovers a love that defies all logic.

.....Carla Neggers has always incorporated her own special down home humor into her story lines,
turning each tale into a treat to be savored. NIGHT SCENTS follows that tradition, but goes one
step further as her writing makes this sensory experience almost worth dying to read. Ms. Neggers
has clearly jointed the romantic intrigue elite such as Kay Hooper and Iris Johansen.

Witches, Treasure, Romance - Enjoy ! July 17 2005
By cb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is great mystery/romance novel based Cape Cod. Clate Jackson moves to Cape Cod on whim after buying an old Cape Cod property. Piper encounters her new neighbor while digging in his flower bed in the middle of night. It is nice mix of romance, mystery and Cope Cod. I would also suggest 'The Ice House' by Minette Walters.

Carla Negger has a new book coming out Summer 2005 ~ 'DARK SKY'.

Not so bright Aug. 13 2004
By S. YALCINKAYA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my first book from Carla Neggers. The characters were interesting, but seemed lacking in the "pull". I enjoyed Carla Negger's writing style and sense of humour, but it was slightly steriotype. The main characters were good and but did not have a good chemistry. The storyline was just a little too unbelievable, but overall ok.
