Publisher's Summary

The rich and powerful Josephine Lazarow, matriarch of Fairham Island, is dead. The police say it's suicide, but Keith, her estranged son, doesn't believe it.

Keith bears scars - both physical and emotional - from his childhood, but he's worked hard to overcome the past. After walking away from his mother and her controlling ways five years ago, he's built a new life in LA. He's also accumulated a fortune of his own. But as soon as he learns of his mother's death, he returns to Fairham. He feels he owes it to his grandfather to put the family empire together again, and he's determined to find his mother's killer.

The problem is, coming home to Fairham puts him back in contact with Nancy Dellinger, the woman he hurt so badly when he left before. And digging that deep into his mother's final days and hours entails a very real risk. Because the person who killed her could be someone he loves.

Critic Reviews

"Buried life-changing secrets, realistic family drama, sharply drawn characters, and dynamic descriptions combine with an intriguing and twisty plot in this perfect sequel to Discovering You. A welcome addition to the author's latest series." ( Library Journal)

Good story...TERRIBLE narration.

This is a pretty good story but it was hard to finish because the narration is awful.

Bad narration. Pretty good story.

The narrator's intonations were mostly off. She would sound mad when the text didn't call for that. Her Ausie accent was awful; too English.
The story was good, except for the character Nancy, who's dignity was not intact when it came to letting Keith in way too quickly after what he'd done.

Great series

I enjoyed both the books in this Fairham Island series. Lots of surprises, good characterization, and setting. Sweet romance written well. The narrator has a pleasant voice but often put emphasis on the wrong words and you have to think about what the author was trying to get across. Plus, all her male voices are annoying and ugly.

Nice plot!

Nothing like a good old fashion whodunit with a love story thrown in for good measure! Interesting plot twist at the end.

OMG!!

The second book in the series is Awesome!! It keeps you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out who killed Josephine Lazarow. And then ends with a cliff hanger....until we meet with Keith Lazarow from Fairham Island. Can't wait for book 3!
