As in most of Ms. Grants books, there is an element of suspense and a touch of danger, and the couple joins forces to get to the bottom of it. Once they’ve tested their DNA and establish they aren’t related, their romance takes off. Boo to Mrs. Compton and her smug attitude, and the grown man/son she keeps tied to her apron strings. Cheers for Annie, the Tea Room baker, and to Lizzie, Oliver’s wheelchair bound, younger sister, still full of life and adventure. At times, I felt as though I was in the same room as the characters going through boxes of old photos for clues, or enjoying asparagus soup with a good glass of chardonnay in Oxford. Or group singing while in the car on a road trip.
As Naomi’s birth line mystery unfolds, both her mother Rebecca, and more surprisingly, grandmother Goldie, come into play related to the English countryside, Oldcastle, and Hereford. Will Naomi finally find out who her father was, and her grandfather? After all the years of wondering and longing, will she finally find out where she belongs, and most importantly, with whom and where she should spend the rest of her life?
Naomi’s grandmother has died. Since her mother had died when she was two, and never revealed who Naomi’s father was, she had been raised by her grandmother. Now she’s 35, single and with no family. She does have a box of journals and personal belongings from her mother and grandmother that all point to Oldcastle England. Small English towns like their peace and protect their secrets. Her grandmother’s painting done by a York, from York manner has Naomi thinking perhaps she’s related to the handsome Oliver York, the current Lord of the Manor, but as Naomi and Oliver get closer to the truth, things are starting to get dangerous for Naomi. Add in the chemistry between the couple and this could be a disaster.
This was a quick fun read. The author created characters with depth and personality. I enjoyed that the character’s all had their own issues and concerns outside of the main focus of the story. The web of mystery that was woven around this small town was complex. As soon as I thought I had it figured out, my theories were dashed. I love a good mystery that isn’t predictable, and this is definitely one of those. Though there were many twists, they made excellent sense and weren’t just thrown in to throw the reader off.
I loved how the story wove through the three women’s lives. Discovering the mystery of Naomi’s grandfather and father and why the women chose to keep those secrets was fulfilling. The stories and lies created to hold their lives together made sense in the moment. This book was a refreshing read.
This book was also a rather passionate read at times. The intimate scenes were hot and emotional. They were not overly graphic but full of real emotion. This was a nice change from much of the over crafted love scenes that populate the current crop of romance novels of late. Things all flowed in a smooth order and made sense with the story.
I enjoyed the writing style of this author and would gladly read more by them. I rarely rate a romance so highly but this was well enjoyed and earned its 5 out of 5 stars.
