Publisher's Summary

The words “For Lila, forever” adorned the front of the envelope in blue ink, the handwriting all too familiar. But it didn’t matter what it said. I didn’t have the heart to open it.

We couldn’t be together.

Not after everything....

Leaving Rose Crossing, Maine was one of the most painful moments of my life - or at least it was until the day I came face-to-face with Thayer Ainsworth again.

After a decade of searching, he’s found me, and he wants to know why I quit my housemaid job and left his family’s island estate without so much as a goodbye. But I’m bound by a devastating secret much bigger than the two of us, and telling him the truth has consequences.

Looking into the eyes of the only man I’ve ever loved, I tell him the only thing I’m allowed to: never contact me again. And when he’s gone, I sit down and finally open his letter.

Only it isn’t a letter at all.

And it changes everything.

SORRY.. but it’s a thumbs down

Over the years I have enjoyed some of Winter Renshaw’s other books.. but sadly, and disappointingly, not this one. Avie Paige’s narration was ok but the dual POV story cried out for a good male narrator.. and a female narrator who can convincingly sound like a male.. but alas it wasn’t to be.

It stretches over four parts.. but (IMO) it rushes, jumps and leaps throughout, it felt rushed, had no depth and threads were woven but were then left dangling never to be mentioned again. WR told you in a brief sentence rather than actually showing you the scene unfold.. so the mental images were more 2D than 3D. I worked my way through the story.. but I was disappointed that I didn’t feel any chemistry, that the characters weren’t fully developed and that the pace was off. The heroine was 18 the hero 19 then it skip-jumped 10 yrs and there was anxiety, angst, drama, misunderstandings, secrets.. blah blah blah.

Worth a credit? “Never judge a book by its cover.. never judge a book by its cover.. never judge a book.... and sorry folks that’s a no.
