Description

“Neggers spins a tale of stolen jewels, long-lost love, and other secrets in this engaging contemporary romance…Lovely descriptions of the countryside add plenty of New England charm.” Publishers Weekly

A New York Times bestseller
A USA Today bestseller

A wave of hope carries Olivia Frost back to her small New England hometown nestled in the beautiful Swift River Valley. She’s transforming a historic home into an idyllic getaway. Picturesque and perfect, if only the absentee owner will fix up the eyesore next door …

Dylan McCaffrey’s ramshackle house in an inheritance he never counted on. It also holds the key to a generations-old lost treasure he can’t resist—any more than he can resist his new neighbor. Against this breathtaking landscape, Dylan and Olivia pursue love-buried secrets and discover a mystery wrapped in a love story—past and present.

Praise

“Neggers spins a tale of stolen jewels, long-lost love, and other secrets in this engaging contemporary romance…Lovely descriptions of the countryside add plenty of New England charm.” Publishers Weekly

“Negger’s lush descriptions of a New England winter turning to spring serve as a lovely metaphor for Olivia and Dylan’s growing romance. This heartwarming tale is full of fascinating secondary characters and enhanced by plot threads involving the long-term effects of a flood valley, a search for stolen jewels, and long-ago passion.” Booklist (starred review)

“A wealth of appealing, totally relatable characters (including well-matched protagonists), long-hidden secrets, and a lost treasure provide some delightful, heartfelt surprises in this cleverly plotted, well-researched, and beautifully described tale that rewards readers with an intriguing mystery as well as a deliciously satisfying romance.” Library Journal

“Susan Boyce lends a clear and expressive voice as narrator. She deftly moves from one main character to the other, bringing the nuances of their personalities to life in her dramatizations…Boyce’s adroit handling of pace and timing makes an intriguing plot even more seductive.” AudioFile

“Neggers captures readers’ attention with her usual flair and brilliance and gives us a romance, a mystery, and a lesson in history. She also presents breathtaking views of a real New England past and present, characters who stay with us long after we close the book, and more than the one romance. Her story will engage readers all the way through.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
