From Publishers Weekly
The clues to the identity of the heroine in this contemporary romance can be obvious and heavy-handed, but the variety of characters Delinsky ( A Woman Betrayed) presents provides ample entertainment. Mystery surrounds the birth of Chelsea Kane. Adopted by the Kanes, she knows only that she was born in Norwich Notch, a small New Hampshire town. An architect, Chelsea gains her first uncertain foothold in Norwich Notch by buying into its largest business, a financially troubled granite company. Locals resent Chelsea's intrusive presence, but two who take to her are Hunter Love (in a friendly sort of way) and "stunningly male" Judd Streeter (passionately). Someone who obviously doesn't take to her, however, scares her with late-night telephone calls and torches her barn. Chelsea's efforts to earn a place in the community and in Judd's heart are endangered when she learns she is pregnant. Judd is not the father, and Notch residents disapprove of unwed mothers. In this small-town romance Delinsky refreshingly takes the opportunity to poke fun at social snobbery and moral hypocrisy.

From the Back Cover
After the death of her adoptive mother, thirty-six-year-old Chelsea Kane is consumed by the need to uncover her biological heritage. Taking a break from her successful architecture career, she arrives in the New Hampshire town where she was born, determined to learn the truth, her only clue a tarnished silver key.
One of her first discoveries, however, is something quite unexpected: the irresistibly attractive Judd Street. Buoyed by love and resolution, the determined Chelsea slowly begins to uncover the dark mystery of her past. But as she inches closer to the truth, she realizes that someone is trying to stop her, first by scaring her, then by trying to harm her. The danger escalates until one terrifying night when all secrets are laid bare.
With memorable characters and writing that will stir the hearts and minds of all readers, The Passions of Chelsea Kane is the kind of compelling narrative that has earned Barbara Delinsky an ever-widening readership.

I've read so many I've way lost track.
You have such a way of creating interesting characters and drawing us into their lives ! Thank you for that. I look fwd to reading many more of your books !
I won't tell about the story, as it's been gone over many times, but it's wonderful.
ADDITION ~~~I read the book sometime ago, thought it excellent. Was So excited to listen on Audible. So now, I'm at the end of the first chapter, I can barely barely tolerate the narrator (Johanna Parker)! She talks too intensely, sds like she's mad about someth! HOW can I tolerate this to the end?! I did listen to the sample, as have got accid into Audible's before and couldn't take the narrator. The sample seemed "ok". I don't know if I'll try to go further or stop. DARN! Beware of Johanna Parker! Johanna, if you see this, please slow down and add softness to your speaking!
