Publisher's Summary

She had a perfect life. Then she got a real life....

For nearly 20 years, quiet, unassuming Lillian Manville has devoted herself to her self-made billionaire husband - and enjoyed a luxurious life of splendid homes, trips, jewels, and clothes. But when James Manville dies in a plane crash, Lillian's grief is compounded by a shocking mystery: All that Jimmie has left to her is an old farmhouse in tiny Calburn, Virginia. Now, Lillian's unexpected circumstances are leading her to a made-over life in Calburn, an exciting business - and a sweet new love with a handsome local man.

But will she have the courage to unveil the truth surrounding a past scandal and the loss of her husband? The answers may be as close as the mulberry tree in her yard - and Lillian must dig deep within herself to Wght the secrets and lies that threaten to uproot the past she cherished and the future she treasures....

It will draw you in

This book starts off in medias res. You will wonder from the very first page -- what in the world is going on??? The main character will draw you in as she discovers who she is and who the man was that she married. She will also make you want to head to the kitchen and cook a five course meal! There are no really red hot love scenes but there are more than enough mysteries to keep you enthralled! I enjoyed this book until the end (which left me a little dissappointed but I still recommend this book).

Almost!

I was very close to rating this book as a 5 all around. however great the story was it fell flat in the end. All that detail in the book was awesome but what a deflated ending.
