A wave of hope carries Olivia Frost back to her small New England hometown nestled in the beautiful Swift River Valley. She’s transforming a historic home into an idyllic getaway. Picturesque and perfect, if only the absentee owner will fix up the eyesore next door. Dylan McCaffrey’s ramshackle house is an inheritance he never counted on. It also holds the key to a generations-old lost treasure he can’t resist any more than he can resist his new neighbor. Against this breathtaking landscape, Dylan and Olivia pursue long-buried secrets and discover a mystery wrapped in a love story past and present.
I love Carla Neggers, but this is probably my least favorite book by her. It was slow and repetitive. The characters were Eh. It got interesting near the end, though the “secret” wasn’t all that surprising. The most interesting and mysterious character in the book was a 90 year old lady. I can’t really think of anything else to say about it. The book was okay, but I wouldn’t read it again nor would I recommend it since I don’t think it’s Negger’s best work.
