Library Journal Review

Called to Charleston, SC, for the reading of a stranger's will, New York City social worker Kara Newell is shocked to learn that not only was wealthy Taylor Patton her biological father, but he had also left her his estate on Cavanaugh Island-if she lives there for five years and restores the property. Still reeling, Kara agrees to think it over, and as she begins to absorb the island's sultry, laid-back ambience and rich cultural heritage (with a little help from handsome sheriff Jeffrey Hamilton) and delve into her family's background, she knows it's the right thing to do. Unfortunately, greedy relatives and developers are bent on stopping her. VERDICT Appealing, mature protagonists, a colorful cast of islanders, and a rewarding romance that realistically unfolds add to this fascinating, gently paced story that gradually reveals its secrets as it draws readers back to idyllic Cavanaugh Island. Alers (Sanctuary Cove) lives in South Floral Park, NY. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
