When Noelle Cooke inherits a quaint English cottage and an art gallery from her famous Aunt Joy, she welcomes a departure from her San Diego routine. But the lure of the Cotswolds, combined with a locked cottage room and a revealing journal, entice her to stay and discover more, including a way to save the gallery from financial ruin. And that means remaining in England.
When her childhood sweetheart, Adam Spencer, begins work on a restoration project in Noelle's village, their friendship blossoms. But as her feelings for Adam deepen, she struggles with memories of what might have been and yearns for a future once thought lost.
Faced with a life-altering revelation Aunt Joy took to her grave and a wrenching choice regarding the man she loves, Noelle could lose far more than her heart.

Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...
The best part of this book was the setting ... Small town in english countryside. Other than that, not an unpleasant read but not one i will listen to again. Main character fairly well drawn, however the supporting cast superficial. 3 stars for nothing really objectionable.

Initially intrigued by the premise and the book was listed in the category of Romantic Mystery. The blurb was interesting. The book? Not so much. It could've been better had the author included more mystery, less juvenile romance. The narration was ok in some parts and not so great in others. I was ready for this story to end about half way through. Had potential but fizzled out early. I will not be reading Book 2.
