Take a trip back in time to beautiful Bridal Veil Island
When Audrey Cunningham moved with her father to his ancestral home on Bridal Veil Island, Georgia, she hoped the beauty and remoteness of the place would keep him sober and close to God. But now wealthy investors are buying up land to build a grand resort on the secluded island--and they want the Cunninghams' property.
Contractor Marshall Graham can't imagine why Boyd Cunningham would ask him to look after Audrey. Marshall has no desire to be saddled with caring for the fiery young woman who seems to think the worst of him. But when someone appears to be sabotaging the construction work at the resort and Audrey's life is endangered, Marshall realizes she holds more of his heart than he thought and he'll do anything to keep her safe.
Amid a time of growth and change for Bridal Veil, can Marshall and Audrey find a foundation on which to build a love to last forever? --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Marshall is a friend of her fathers and comes to the island to help with the construction on the new compound. At every turn he meets with problems from a faulty beam, to bones in the structure and his superstitious crew of workers refuse to work until the curse is lifted to an explosion.
The back story is improved by the many characters including a shot gun older servant that wants those Yankees to get off the island, two twin girls and their widowed father and a cat with a good sense of people to trust. The story shows the historical period of post Civil War South, has a good and interesting range of characters and his a Christian romance too.
Audrey Cunningham was not particularly thrilled with her father’s decision to move back to his childhood home on Bridal Veil Island. However, she gives up her job with the Morley’s and goes to Bridal Fair with her father. A friend of her grandmother’s, Aunt Thora, lives with them. Aunt Thora believes the South should have won the war and all Yankees are out to get them. When Boyd finds out his Mother had failed to pay the taxes on Bridal Fair for many years, he has no idea how to make the payments without selling Bridal Fair. His hard drinking earlier in his life had left him quite ill. Fortunately for them, Victor Morley, comes back into their lives with an answer. A group of investors are building a resort on Bridal Veil Island. They own all of the land except for what the Cunningham’s own. He suggests they rent rooms for his building supervisors and rent out the old slave buildings for his workers. The group will renovate the buildings and pay for the men to stay there. It makes more work for Audrey and Aunt Thora, but it means they keep their home.
Marshall Graham comes to see Boyd. It was the death of Marshall’s father that led to Boyd’s decision to stop drinking. Audrey has problems with one of the Graham boys, known for their drinking, to stay on the Island as she is afraid Boyd will start drinking again. However, Marshall, unlike his brothers, refuses to drink. He gets the job of supervisor for the Bridal Veil Island resort and will be staying with the Cunningham’s. Until he finally approaches her, he has no idea why she seems to dislike him. After they clear the air, they become friends. She also befriends the doctor who came to the island with his two daughters.
Strange things begin to happen on the worksite. Why would these things be happening? Audrey gets involved in finding out the answers and finds herself in danger. Can Marshall protect her?
