Publisher's summary

Neggers (The Whisper) spins a tale of stolen jewels, long-lost love, and other secrets in this engaging contemporary romance. Olivia Frost has returned to Knights Bridge, Mass., to turn a historic home into a getaway destination. A neighboring house is in disarray, so Olivia writes to the owner, Dylan McCaffrey, asking him to clean it up. Dylan has no idea his late father left him the property until he gets Olivia’s note. Curious, he travels to Knights Bridge, where he and Olivia hit it off.

Soon they are digging into the past, trying to find out why Dylan’s father bought the house and what secrets its previous owner might have had. Lovely descriptions of the countryside add plenty of New England charm, but the romance between Olivia and Dylan is overshadowed by the more interesting flashbacks, secrets, and experiences of a secondary character.

Nice romance-lite/mystery-lite.

I listened to this while I packed my house up for a move and cleaned my carpets. It was a nice, relaxing listen for boring chores like those.

This is a nice romance-lite with a fun mystery. Olivia relocates from Boston to her very small hometown and starts up a new business from scratch. There is a ton of mystery and intrigue with regard to Olivia's next door neighbor and his run-down, seemingly abandoned property. Things begin to very slowly make sense once Dylan shows up to take care of his property. The story doesn't focus only on the romantic relationship between Olivia and Dylan; there are several relationships that are introduced and developed here-mostly family. There is no angst or big drama-just very easy listening. The setting is a real place, and bits and pieces of this story reflect the true history of that area, which make this story even more fun and fascinating.

I'm excited that the next book features Noah, as he was one of the more interesting secondary characters!
