Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Rachel Gibson returns with this dazzling love story filled with sizzle, sass, and just a bit of Southern charm....

"Hello, Ms. Vivian...it's been a long time."

And with those words, Vivian Leigh Rochet nearly melted. It's been years since she last saw Harrison Whitley-Shuler. She was a teenager scrubbing houses for a living. He was the gorgeous son of rich parents, not fit for the likes of her.

Vivian had vowed to get out of Charleston, become a big Hollywood star, and stick it to the snooty girls who made her cry.

She got what she wanted - and more - but why does her glamorous life seem so trivial?

Harrison got out, too...making it all the way to Wall Street until a heart attack forced him to trade in his cuff links for a good set of hand tools. Making furniture soothes his soul, but escaping the Whitley-Shuler heritage is nearly impossible. And now he's come face-to-face with the one who got away. He's not looking for love. He's not even looking for sex...so why is resisting her the hardest thing he's ever done?

    "enjoyed"

    Rachel Gibson has never disapointed me before this book. Nothing worked. the narator deliver a flat monotone reading of a poorly written book. You can do better than this, Ms Gibson.

    Story
    "A complicated and great romance!"

    The reviews for this book have been tough in my opinion. The characters are interesting, complex and imperfect -my favorite kind! (And better than the last couple of books in my opinion!) The story starts out a bit like the old movie "Sabrina" (or the brothers reminded me of the brothers in the movie), but the plot twists and turns and the story has several surprising twists! You see all of the characters good points and imperfections -there is no black and white "good" or "bad" characters -I like that about Rachel Gibson's books.

    Vivian is a strong, smart woman who left the city of Charleston and became the actress she always dreamed of becoming, the woman her mother encourages her to be -herself -despite the criticism of those around her. Vivian was raised by a loving, but bi-polar mom, not knowing who her father is or was. I loved the portrayal of her mother -again, not good, not bad, but real and a woman others couldn't help but love, but also a woman who wasn't always there for Vivian. Vivian loves her mother and accepts her illness as just another part of the woman.

    Vivian is raised living in the guest house, cleaning house for the Whitney-Shuler family with her mother. This includes cleaning for "the Mantis," Mrs. Whitney-Shuler (because she would eat the people around her), and her two sons. But even Mrs. Whitney-Shuler has layers as the adult Vivian finds out. The boys grow up in boarding schools, but Vivian is the nightmarish younger sister during their summer holidays. (I love the diary excerpts from the younger Vivian's perspective!) When she returns as an adult to arrange her mother's funeral and set her affairs in order, she finds Harrison living in Charleston building custom cabinetry and furniture and a much different person than the mean boy she grew up believing him to be. The attraction begins as a slow, but guarded burn and escalates to a very real and hot love.

    Vivian discovers there is a lot she didn't know about the people she grew up with and to say much more would give away too much. But she finds Harrison, his brother and "the Mantis" have their own secrets and stories and they all came together to take care of each other, including taking care of Vivian and her mother in ways Vivian never understood. And Harrison will be the love she both needs and wants forever.

    "So disappointing"

    I was hoping the bad reviews were wrong. They are sadly right. Not sure what happened to her writing but this was very boring

    "Angst with a little Whimsey
    "

    Have always enjoyed this authors take on human foibles, but struggled to stay interested in this book. Maybe the contrived southern accents were too annoying?

    Story
    "Not as good as her other books"

    This was a disappointment. The story was way too light. The romance was not really well developed. And all the teenage diary entries got boring. It felt like a few pieces of stories written together to create a longer romance full of fluff.

    "Just OK"

    Not one of the better Rachel Gibson books. The female character is good, but this story just skimmed the surface and then ended abruptly, all happy happy, all the issues just brushed aside.
