From Publishers Weekly
Krentz ( Gift of Gold ) concocts a breezy, funny tale of love conquering all. Philadelphia Fox, do-gooder and professional social worker, bristles when she unexpectedly inherits substantial holdings in a major electronics company jointly owned by the mighty Castleton and Lightfoot clans of Washington State. Phila is offended by the "death machines" the company builds for the Pentagon, by the Castletons and Lightfoots ("aristocrats with everything but the title"), and by the way the families have mistreated her late best friend. But an affair with the Lightfoots' black-sheep scion teaches Phila that even rich, conservative snobs can be confused and vulnerable. With marvelous economy, Krentz ties together every detail she introduces. Her charitable, affable vision results in a grand tale of harmony restored, replete with rehabilitation of its villainess. The care Krentz lavishes on her narrative would do honor to a far more serious novel and demonstrates once again a key factor in her success: an abiding respect for the reader.
