All Duncan MacKeage wants is to keep his crew building roads and bridges up the mountain to the fancy resort overlooking Spellbound Falls' new inland sea. He doesn't want anything to do with his own family magic or with the beautiful widow Peg Thompson and her tribe of little heathens. But when Duncan is tasked with keeping an eye on the widow Thompson, trouble starts. Because of a family curse, Peg fears that giving in to her desires will mean killing off another lover. But Duncan-the strong, handsome man buying her gravel-is unbelievably tempting and determined to take care of her. Torn between her head and her heart, will Peg find the strength to break free of her black-widow curse? Or will pursuing their attraction put these lovers in harm's way?

"[Fans] will enjoy the enchanting town and characters." (Publishers Weekly)
i have listened to the book several times as it is a good book. The characters are well developed and it is a good story.
Peg is good but so independent that she nearly passes up a good thing in Duncan. Duncan is probably my favorite. He had his challenges too.
just one other performance. Ms Ryan does well with these books and I have no compliant.
Oh yes, you will not listen or read a Janet Chapman book without a strong reaction. She manages to keep you right there when you pick up one of her books. There is mystery, love, sorrow and humor in ever book that she has written.
I love Janet Chapman's books, especially the first series of the Highlanders of Pine Creek. Sad that series nor the rest of this series is in audio. She writes a very good book that is hard to put down until finished.
