A modern day fairy godmother sets out to overhaul the life of small town Georgia girl whose very existence and career are on a downward spiral. Gabrielle March is summoned to an ocean side estate where she is presented with mega shares of stock and a seat on the board of Atlantic-Hastings, a Fortune 500 company—as compensation for a crime against her late father. The only “string” attached is spending time at corporate headquarters in New York City under the watchful eye of her fairy godmother’s son, corporate tycoon, Pierce Hastings.
From the moment Pierce meets Gabrielle, he’s convinced she has nothing but subterfuge on her mind. He’s had his fill of opportunistic women who want to capitalize on his family name and fortune. He soon realizes Gabrielle needs neither. What she does need is his help in solving the forty year old crime that financially ruined her father. One of the remaining conspirators is still very much alive and won’t rest until Gabrielle March is dead.

Romantic suspense is not usually to my liking, since I can spot a bad guy a mile away in most cases, and then I have to plod through hundreds of pages to get to the end, which I’ve known about for days. But I have to make an exception in the case of Maybe Too Good To Be True. It’s a rags to riches story about Gabrielle March, who is scrambling to find ways to pay her bills when a true fairy godmother discovers her and provides her with wealth and family. Maybe too good to be true? How about if we add in a handsome hero who’s on the rebound from his first marriage and finds Miss March to be just what he’s needing? Oh, and their first lovemaking takes place on a private island owned by the family? Yes and yes! But what hooked me about this book was the fact that it kept me guessing who the bad guy truly was until the very end. Now that Maybe Too Good To Be True! I highly recommend this book, especially if you’re bored with the romantic suspense that’s out there now.
