When a woman’s dream for the future turns into a nightmare, a handsome FBI agent makes her vulnerable to more than she ever imagined in this novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.
Peyton Lockhart and her sisters have just inherited Bishop’s Cove, a charming oceanfront resort. But it comes with a condition: They must run the resort for one year and show a profit—only then will they own it.
Peyton welcomes the challenge, yet has no idea how many people want to sabotage her success—including her vindictive cousins and the powerful land developers who have an eye on the coveted beachfront property. But when the threats against Peyton escalate into dangerous territory, she enlists the help of her childhood friend, FBI agent Finn MacBain.
Finn saved her life once before. Peyton has no choice but to trust him to do it again.
Excellent writing with lots of twists and turns and the perfect amount of story and love. The characters were interesting and believable. I liked it very much!
Just not up to her usual standards
I hate to give Garwood bad reviews, but this book doesn't even seem like her writing. With cartoon villains and a female protagonist right out of the 1950s, it just isn't close to the standards of her other books. No character has any complexity. I'm wondering if it's a reprint of an earlier book from the beginning of her career, when some of the types of situations and characters in the book would have been standard. It is easy to read, but not up to her usual work. Somewhat disappointing.
I could not put it down. Great characters and good dialogue. I hate that the story ended.
