Months after her husband's death, Elizabeth finds a large home called Roosevelt. The house appears to be everything she has wanted for her family. It is described as an old Victorian. Little does Elizabeth know, however, that many secrets revolve around Roosevelt. These secrets bring people into her life that she never would have otherwise known and they are looking to stir up trouble for Elizabeth and her son. The longer the two stay in the home, the deeper they find themselves in the entanglement that is Roosevelt.
The author gives an in-depth look into the life of a single woman with many worries on the mind. She does a fine job of describing the frustration and determination of the character. Mikell did a wonderful job in expressing the greed that any person can find themselves in if they don't stop to think about what they are doing. I would have liked a deeper look into some of the characters, including Desmond. However, I think that the main idea of the story gives us the best way of knowing who these characters are.
Elizabeth Samms has always been in love with the Roosevelt Victorian style home for years. She will drive by the house with her boyfriend (now hubby) and dream of one day owning that house not a house like it but THE Roosevelt house. Just like any other couple she will have to wait for that dream. Elizabeth's husband will always reassure her that one day their dream will come true.
After her husband died in a car accident Elizabeth was left with a large lump sum of money were she and her son can live a comfortably.
Buying the house is nothing, keeping the house is what's going to take all she has
Elizabeth will find herself fighting for the home she has always dreamed of owning.
I love the way Yvonne Mikell develops the story line it was just perfect. She will keeping you guessing and not know were the lies are coming from with a little drama and suspense at time. This is a great relaxing read that anybody will enjoy reading.
Yvonne Mikell is clearly no stranger to the mystery genre! She does a nice job of weaving an intriguing tale of betrayal and mysteries that leaves the reader hoping for more. Her characters are easy to connect with, and you will certainly find yourself rooting for Elizabeth and Desmond to be able to live a comfortable life in beautiful Roosevelt!
