REVIEWED BY Tina Shobe
I was given a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.
Maggie Campbell lost her Mom in a drowning accident when she was 12. The only love she was shown after that was by her Grandmother. Her father turning into an uncaring person.
She moved away as soon as possible to escape those memories. She feels she has her life set until she receives a letter from her sister asking her to come home to celebrate their grandmother’s 90th birthday. She can’t say no.
Upon returning home she discovers their neighbor, Desmond Kinsley deeply involved with her family. She is immediately suspicious. She later learns that her family’s property are under control of Desmond and she becomes more determined to dislike him.
Poor Maggie seems to be a bit accident prone and every time Desmond seems to be there to pick her back up.
I loved their exchanges and I love the way we are pulled into Maggie’s life with her sister’s family and her Grandmother.
Maggie and Desmond become more involved when he helps the family out with the care of her Grandmother. She opens herself up to see the true Desmond and Desmond in turn realizes the impression of Maggie is not correct.
I really enjoyed reading this book and getting to know the characters. Very well written.
