When she arrives at Devereux Manor it all seems too good to be true. The home is beautiful, the town is inviting, and the sexy gardener promises to make this a summer she won’t soon forget.
However the more she learns about the elusive Ms. Devereaux she begins to realize that the conveniently placed ad in front of her dorm room may not have been the happy coincidence that it once seemed. Maggie isn’t the only one who Ms. Devereaux has lured to the plantation, and Ms. Devereaux isn’t the only one with secrets to hide.

The characters definitely make this novel. Don’t get me wrong, the storyline was phenomenal but the people really make you love them. Right from the first page the author makes it so easy to understand the main character; her thoughts, her feelings, her actions. As a reader you’re able to form a connection with her. I admire the fact that she’s willing to go the extra mile to change the things that she isn’t happy with. The male lead is a bit of an enigma that you can’t help but fall for. He is genuine yet mysterious all at the same time. He’s also an alpha male without it being outright apparent & in your face. Add to this the fantastic supporting cast that make you feel just as welcome as (at least one of) the main characters did and you will feel like this is your new home.
Overall this was a fantastic read that I couldn’t put down for a second. If I had to come up with something that I didn’t enjoy about the novel it would be the fact that it ended and now I have to wait for the next instalment. I’m dying to know how this mystery ends. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense but will warn you that there’s a bit of a cliffhanger.
About the author:
I began my writing career in 2009 with the publication of my first novel Love’s Fate, which quickly grew into a romantic series. Since that first day that I sat down to write I haven’t been able to stop. Writing is my passion and has become a necessary part of my life. Sometimes there are stories that just beg to be told.
