Overview

Romance and Drama to Capture the Heart in This Emotional Tale

The last thing Libby Sawyer and her father expected upon their return from their summer home was to find strangers inhabiting a house that had been in their family for decades. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family from Romania to the town of Colden, Massachusetts with a singular purpose: to claim the house willed to him long ago. Since neither party has any intention of giving up their claim, a fierce legal battle ensues between the two families.

When important documents go missing from the house, Libby suspects Michael is the culprit. Determined to discover the truth behind the stolen papers, Libby investigates, only to find more layers of mystery surrounding Michael and his family. Despite their rivalry, Libby finds herself developing feelings for this man with the mysterious past.

As a decision about the house looms in the courts, Libby must weigh the risks of choosing to remain loyal to her family or give her heart to a man whose intentions and affections are less than certain.

SUCH a GREAT book! There were moments it moved a little slow... but wow... a great break from the sometimes monotonous plots in this genre. One of the BEST books I've read in a long time. It's in my top ten!

I devour books. I often read 2-3 books a week. But i have developed the nasty habit of racing thru the latter parts of books because i basically have figured out how it would end. NOT THIS BOOK! I was captivated all the way thru and felt no need to race ahead. I would highly recommend. Wish there was a sequel....i want more!

One of the most precious love stories I had ever read.

What I loved most about this novel, was the characters in them. The plot was good, but it¿s really the characters that made the book twice as enjoyable to read. Libby is a great character with an awful secret - although I thought it was most definitely a secret problem that can be fixed, so I¿m not sure why it wasn¿t encouraged for her to try to solve this issue. Perhaps because she¿s tried so hard to do so with results, she just gave up - what surprised me was I really thought Michael would do something about it, but he didn¿t. (This whole thing will make sense once you read the book). I thought Libby and Michael were such a wonderful couple! from the start they had a little spark and it eventually grew to something more but it was just so nice to read them both. Some of the things Michael says to Libbey throughout the book were so nice I had to sit back and reread them again. They were most definitely very memorable quotes. My favorite scene, had to be when they were stranded in the rain.The plot was really good and interesting. I was very glad of Mirela¿s outcome because of her past story. What got me all riled up was Regina. Oh argh. She got me so mad and I can¿t believe she did what she did. (Which just goes to show you how involved in the plot I was while reading this book). I also liked the perfume parts of the book. That was interesting and didn¿t think someone like Michael would be into that sort of thing. It¿s definitely something you don¿t see in most novels out there.Definitely recommended for those who want a light romantic read. The romance was brilliant, the plot very nice and interesting to follow, most importantly it had very memorable characters that made the book absolutely fantastic.

It is 4:30 am. I have been reading non stop. This book was astounding. It chronicles not only what is good in life, but the nasty underbelly that life sometimes has. When I want to read a gritty real life story so well written to bring tears to my eyes, I pick up a book my Elizabeth Camden.

Folks, when you review a book, PLEASE do not give the plot away. Just say if you liked it, loved it or hated it and why....but please stop writing a synopsis because it spoils it for future readers!

As beautiful a read as conveyed by its cover, you will not want to lay this story aside... lovely ~ intriguing people and places Elizabeth once again scores highly with her newest novel. Excerpts available by clicking here... excellent attention to details and realistic characterization filled with abundant secrets result in a beautiful historic story. Elizabeth has a knack for presenting unusual plots that spare readers from the commonplace with vibrant characters. Well Done! and Congratulations, Elizabeth, on another winner!

I was a little skeptical when I first decided to pick this book, but I have to say that it was a delight to read, so much so that I had a hard time stopping until the end.
