This story completely hooked me from the beginning when Rachel is staring at "the monstrous stone house," Wynnedower, after following her brother's directions to "drive until the trees crowd in close and the road looks like it's about to end, then keep driving."
Wynnedower is a rambling, rundown old mansion with locked doors, forbidden rooms, mysterious people who come and go, and a sexy, enigmatic owner who advises Rachel to, "Lock the door and keep it locked. If you hear noises in the night, ignore them."
The story has the gothic allure of a Daphne du Maurier novel but with twenty-first century characters. Rachel is a modern heroine, a strong, complex woman who can take care of herself. Jack is inscrutable but a real person, and the attraction between the two of them is powerful and compelling. The description of that attraction is subtle and understated...and completely believable. I felt Rachel's emotions, her growing attraction to a man she doesn't completely understand and doesn't always like, felt those emotions and her happiness, confusion, pain...
I won't give away any of the secrets...and there are plenty of them...but suffice to say, once you start reading this book, you won't be able to put it down.
This book stars a likeable , tough-enough but nice heroine who I could not help rooting for. She cares, yet she has a spine, unlike some of the "classic" gothic heroines who seem to let everyone walk on them. Her story is well told, and she comes across as a real person. I liked her, I respected her strength, and her weaknesses too. The supporting cast is also good, and suitably mysterious. I also enjoyed the clean romance; I am not a prude but after years of romance reading, steamy love scenes are rather tiresome, not to mention repetitive. This book has a few kisses, and a good romantic story.
When all the mysteries are solved, I thought "that was fun, enjoyable, and worth the read."
This author writes well, including readable and believable descriptions of physical and emotional settings. I am looking forward to checking out her other books.
There are just a few errors in editing, making reading it a pleasure.
The story is well written. It flows well and is easy to understand. And, once again, for those who read my reviews, I stopped my crafts for the last third of the book to read it myself. I read much faster than kindle. Just had to do it! The intrigue was that great! This story also gets you thinking. Truth is better than trying to be kind sometimes. Speak your case honestly and hope for the best results. Greed does funny things to people.
The characters are rock solid. I can relate to each and every one of them. As the story unfolds, it sort of gets to where you think you, yourself, grew up with these people. Rachel makes an excellent main character as does Jack.
Rachel is a 30 something inventory specialist. She travels to Wynnedower Mansion to see her brother who has stopped returning her calls. Rachel raised him, so she is a sister/mother. her brother Jeremy is not there, and she finds Jack, the bad-tempered owner. Jack is not so happy to meet her since her brother took off without giving proper notice.
Jack has his own plans. He is tired of the responsibility for everyone and everything that happens. He sees Rachel as another complication, but he lets her stay anyway until her brother returns.
As the story unfolds, we start to see Jack in a different. light. Rachel has to finally admit she is in love with Jack. True to life, everyone knows she is before she does.
This is a very exciting read people. The book is well worth the money to purchase.

It has no action or zing to it for almost the entire read, and big bang at the end.
an Easy read though...
