Review by wyvernfriend
It's not often that I have to say this about a book but this is a straight contemporary romance with no paranormal at all in it, there are hunches, but that's about it. I feel a need to say this because I approached this story with thoughts of paranormal and kept expecting someone to start into that, but no. I think I would have enjoyed the read better if I had known this from the outset, but with Ms Krentz's output being mostly paranormal these days I kinda expected some to creep in.Lucy Sheridan has been away from Summer River for thirteen years, last time she was here she was dragged bodily from a party by a guy she had a crush on, Mason Fletcher, and ever since she hasn't gone back. Her aunt discouraged it and the kid who had invited her, disappeared mysteriously, now her aunt is dead and she has inherited the house and some shares in a company that has a winery. She works as a genealogical researcher for a private investigation firm and Mason runs a security business with his brother. When Lucy discovers a secret inside her aunt's house she feels a need to find out the truth and if her aunt's death is related to this discovery.I liked it, the end chase scene had me at the edge of my seat. I liked the characters and their reactions and how they had to build a relationship and learn to trust each other.Overall, an enjoyable read.
