Catherine "C.C." Calhoun is determined to keep her family's estate, known affectionately as the Towers, in the family. She admits the cost of keeping up the crumbling mansion might be quickly exceeding what C.C., her sisters and her aunt can afford, but the only way to save the house can't be to sell it. Especially not to arrogant and handsome hotel magnate Trenton St. James III.

I love this particular series. The characters are relatable and I love how the story builds through the stories of the Calhoun sisters. What disappoints me the most is the narrator's choice of vice for C.C.'s love interest, Trent. The narrator turned what is supposed to be a strong Boston accent into an accent that is middle between Russian and Italian monster. Trent's voice sounds old and ridiculous, and honestly distracts from the story. The other voices are great.
