I liked this Nora Roberts novel. The plot where the protagonist is renovating a house as a do it your self project to be an interesting read. It makes you want to find out how it would turn out. The other aspect that makes the story interesting is character. This author is known for creating strong characters. Cilla is the protagonist who is a child star that has turned into a house flipper who no longer wants the Hollywood life. Ford her romantic interest is a former lawyer who writes graphic novels. It is symbolic to note that both of these characters have switched or in the process of switching careers. We the readers get to take the journey of discovery with Cilla and Ford.
The plot of this novel had many twists and turns. I expected some and there were others that were a surprise. I was a little disappointed with the lull between plot points in the novel.
This novel is enjoyable and I would recommend picking it up!
