Library JournalLily Sawyer left behind high society and stifling family in New York to return to her private oasis on Massachusetts’s Cape Cod. But now the cottage has turned into a personal prison for Lily, until her father hires carpenter Cliff Buckley to remodel the place. Cliff is adamant that he’s not to be some service staff for the spoiled rich girl from the big city. It’s those same rich people who build expensive houses where once his father had built dependable homes. As Cliff strips the house, he begins to strip away Lily’s fa?ade to find the vulnerable woman beneath. Now all they have to do is survive an impending hurricane.
Verdict At a little over 120 pages, this short novel from Maher (Fault Lines; I’ll Become the Sea) lacks some story development. Halfway through, however, things turn around, so that by the end the reader is fully invested in what happens to these characters.—Christyna Hunter, Loudoun Cty. P.L., Lovettsville, VA
