Publisher's Summary

From the author of the best-selling Sweeney Sister Series and Sweet Tea Tuesdays comes a new novel of passion, intrigue, and redemption.

Ellie Pringle has spent endless hours and countless dollars working with a therapist to remember the lost years of her childhood. She's baffled and more than a little intrigued when the grandmother she hasn't seen in 34 years dies and leaves her a fortune. The time has come to face her past in person. Still reeling from a recent breakup of a long-term relationship, and with nothing to keep her in San Francisco, Ellie packs her meager belongings and boards a plane for the South Carolina Lowcountry.

Standing in the entryway of her grandmother's antebellum home on South Battery Street in Charleston, Ellie faces the first of many ghosts who will soon haunt her. On her first night in the creepy, creaking mansion, as she's perusing the titles in a dusty bookcase, she comes across her deceased mother's leather-bound journal. Her mother's words create more unanswered questions and send her on a quest to find more journals.

As Hurricane Lorene bears down on the South Carolina coast, Ellie encounters Juan Hagood, a handsome architect who has the talent to restore her dilapidated mansion and the charm to mend her broken heart. But as Ellie reads her mother's diaries, they dislodge a stone in the wall that safeguards her memories, causing her world to come crumbling down. Revelations about her childhood lead Ellie on a harrowing journey of discovery that will hold listeners spellbound until the dramatic conclusion.

Not bad....

This audio book was not bad. Some parts were predictable while other places could have been expanded with more detail. All in all, I enjoyed the book.

it was just okay

held my interest but not a favorite. the writing towards the end seemed juvenile to me like the reader was a young teen or not very educated and the author was writing to that level. okay story though

Weak ending.

Enjoyed reading until the end. Ending was rushed and weak, and unbelievable.. Characters were introduced ie "loverboy" but never developed in any sense..
