Shelby Foxworth is left with massive debt when her husband is drowned in a boating accident. She does what she can to repay the debts he has left behind and returns home to her family in Tennessee with her delightful three year old daughter.
There she meets Grif who is renovating a part of her mother's home. Soon they form a strong bond, but there are still secrets and depths to the story relating to her husband. And soon there is murder and people hanging around that puts her brother Forest ( a local law enforcement officer) and Griff on alert.
I really liked Shelby and her grit in facing up to what life has thrown at her. She has a wonderful relationship with her young daughter and she is able to stand up for herself when someone from her school days gives her a lot of grief with her mean and bitter ways. I loved Shelby's family and the way they all pulled together.
The suspense part was pretty much low key, I am sure most readers saw early on what was going to happen, but that's okay, while I enjoy the light suspense I know how it works out in a Nora Robert's book and I just enjoy the ride!
It was narrated very well by January LaVoy, her pace and variation of voice for the range of characters was excellent and I am sure the listening of it provided that extra bit of enjoyment. Again excellent narration takes the book up a notch. (I notice recent reviews on Audible are a little harsh on this book because of the plot, but I guess it depends what you are looking for when you pick a book up.)
