My Thoughts:

This book I bought through Harlequin’s reader group.  It’s the story of Olivia Frost who moves out of Boston after someone she thought was her friend stole her biggest client, feeling hurt she returns home to Knights Bridge hoping to turn a house into a profitable business, the only problem she sees is the eye sore down the street once owned by a local school teacher Grace Webster who sold it to Ducan MCaffrey. Grace decides to write to Duncan hoping he wil clean up the old refrigerator and washer machine in the yard, Olivia doesn’t want her clients seeing this when they come to her property.  Little does she know Dylan shows up to find out why his father bought the property and decide what to do with it.  To say they get off on a rocky start is an understatement of the greatest proportion.

Through this story you read entries made by Grace as she tells her story.  Her book won’t be released until her death but you the reader get to read her entries and find out what she wants people to know.  How her house was taken from her as a child to make a river for water for Bostonians.  How her family feels robbed of their house, and how she came to live in her house.  As the story progresses you see Olivia tell Dylan why she left Boston and what she was running from.  You also see the fears of the mother carry on to her daughters as their mother suffers from severe anxiety to the extent she won’t fly, no matter how many times she plans a trip.  You even start to see sparks fly between Dylan and Olivia. It’s a great story full of adventure, romance, wondering what secrets Grace Webster holds to the past.
