I love Lily! She’s so strong even though she doesn’t see it like that at a lot of times. She’s on the edge of losing everything after a tragic loss and doesn’t want to give up on her dream of making her restaurant, Daisy’s (loved the name too!) into something more than it is. She wants to move on and move up but needs help to do it.
Nick is another male character that is full of alpha characteristics and a no nonsense attitude that I adore. He has had his thoughts on Daisy’s for a while and considered looking into acquiring the place to revamp and move up into better things. As fate would have it, Lily needs help. Even though it’s against what she feels she should take, she accepts his offer for help. The restaurant means more to her than just an income. It’s a key to her past and her future and a part of her heart. Nick understands that and respects it…..but it doesn’t mean he won’t try to acquire her too!
Of course there are some shady characters who have to make disruptions in their progress both professionally and personally. There are those who would love to push them out of their rightful spot and will take their chances by any means necessary. Can they find the truth without risking their lives, each other or their business? Who is to really blame for all the tragedy that has taken place? They have to find this out together and survival is a must.
I loved this book! Leslie has a talent for bringing life and relatability to her characters! She has written another winner in my opinion. This is a wonderful romantic suspense book for anyone who enjoys a good love story with twists and a who did it type plot!
Lily is a woman with goals and dreams of her own when tragedy strikes and she inherits the family business, Daisy’s. Try as she might, Lily isn’t a pro at the restaurant business and the restaurant is floundering. Unwilling to let her father and brother’s legacy and pride and joy just fail she enlists the help of Nick.
Nick is a no nonsense restaurant genius who has the ability to take restaurants on the brink of failure and turn them into thriving successes. He was given a break at a young age from one of the most powerful men in the industry, Rex King. Rex is a powerful influence in Nick’s life, but he is also a competitor. Rex’s daughter, Pamela, considers herself Nick’s fiancé, despite the fact Nick has let her, and her father, aware of the fact they are only friends.
As Lily and Nick begin to work together and improving the restaurant, Lily finds herself in a conflicting situation. She is impressed and grateful for the help Nick is providing but she feels as though he is taking it from her. To further complicate things, Lily is drawn to Nick despite the fact he can be arrogant and difficult to deal with.
Nick and Lily find themselves drawn to each other but also find themselves facing numerous problems with the success of Daisy’s. They are also facing threats to Lily’s life on multiple occasions. I completely enjoyed the story. I would have liked a bit more retribution for what happened to Lily’s father and brother, as well as the attacks on herself and her staff, but overall, I’d recommend this book.
She decides to hire Nick Jordan, and at a 51% share of her business he had better be great. Nick has a reputation for turning restaurant businesses around. She just hopes that he can help her out. Crazy things continue to happen, and finally the police explain that maybe someone had it in for her father or brother. Of course she dismisses that idea, but things continue to happen to plague their business.
When blame look towards Rex King the one that "makes restaurants great" and his daughter Pamela, both friends of Nick Jordan will he look truthfully at the evidence. Is there evidence to convict them? When murder is mentioned in connection with Lily's father and brother's death, who will be implicated?
I was able to figure out who the bad guy was early on, but it did in no way distract from the story. There was other parts that I did not quite figure out, so there was a few twists thrown in. There was growth in many of the characters, which I enjoyed because no one likes reading cardboard characters.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this contemporary story. I've read several of Leslie's other stories, and while I enjoyed those this has been my favorite read. I look forward to seeing if there are more titles like this.
