Secrets rule Lana’s life. Her father’s death brought some out into the open, but she has a few of her own: 1) she’s been married to Blake for nearly a year - and trying to get a divorce for most of that time. 2) A moment of emotional weakness and too much champagne ended with her in her husband’s arms - and now she’s pregnant.
Blake hasn’t thought of another woman since they first met, though she believes otherwise. When Lana’s hotel-magnate father offers him the job of regional manager - and an office in the hotel Lana would be managing, Blake jumps at it. Keeping her attention when it’s split between her sisters, the ins and outs of running a resort, and the ‘ghost’ who’s been haunting the building isn’t easy. Learning about the baby convinces him to redouble his efforts though - he isn’t going to give up without a fight, and when someone comes after Lana, the stakes are raised again.

I enjoyed the possibility of paranormal experience is going on in the hotel
The narrator did an excellent job bringing the story to life I'm glad one narrator did the entire series for more seamless read
I divided the book into two listening sessions, because of my frustration with the main character Lana.
the series does need to be read in order for better understanding. In this book we follow sister Lana on her journey of admitting her pregnancy to the family as well as her surprise marriage. Lana seem so strong in the other books, but in this one she turns out to be a major weak link. I hate when we find out a character has no backbone and fulfills the damsel in distress stereotype to the T. however I do enjoy this series and learning about each sister, I just wish they were all is consistently strong as they appeared in the first book. I listen to this book on audible the narrator did a great job pulling you into the story and keeping it moving along
If I try another book by this author it would be so I can find out what happens to the rest of the sisters in the series but in a format where I don't have to listen to Valerie Gilbert talk and I can skip pages at a time.
I found the ending expected but I was not disappointed at all.
Just about anyone. The first book I listened to by this narrator I thought she was annoying but bearable. The second book I partially blamed on the page after page of whining and woe is me attitude of the MC. However, it turns out this narrator makes all females sound whiney, obnoxious and snobbish.
So, this book was super annoying and Lana is not my favorite sister. She has serious trust issues and over reacts at the drop of a hat. The whole reasons for the separation is ridiculous and then she doesn't learn from the mistake. I just wanted to shake her!
Blake is like, beyond a saint for putting up with her nonsense. It Lana can grow up she will deserve him. It was a roller-coaster at times. Having the mixed narrative helps you really see his side of things. It doesn't exactly work as well for Lana, I had a lot of trouble liking her and thinking well of her actions.
The side plot of the ghost finally comes to the forefront. It has been progressing and finally has its moment. It was not quite what I expected and I found myself surprised but the culprit. An interesting twist.
It is a fairly clean romance, meaning closed bedroom door. They do sleep together, but no details. It might be acceptable for the Christian Romance readers, because they are actually married.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Valerie Gilbert, who is fantastic. I always find her reads delightful and this is another case of happy ears. Her tone is pleasing and fits the story to a tee. I love her pace and the energy of the read. It kept me going when Lana was annoying.
I think Rosemary is next and I cannot wait!!! I expect she and Harrison are going to be loads of fun.
