I just finished an amazing read.....a classy romance and it was Delicious!
Folks, this was what romance is meant to be!!
Parker Welles is a daughter of wealth, an only child. She has been brought up prim and proper, had a trust fund to support herself, is a single mother of a five and a half year old and life is good until her cagey father pulls the rug from under her feet. He managed that trust fund on her behalf, and the trust fund of her son Nicky, until the feds abscounded with everything daddy owned due to securities fraud. That also included the mansion she and her son lived in.
Homeless, with eleven grand in her personal checking account, and no trust fund any longer to fall back upon, she takes a three week hiatus to a property left to her in Maine by an aunt while Nicky spends three weeks with his father and stepmother in Yosemite. Her father's lawyer, James Cahill, has always cared for Parker and joins her in Maine to prepare the house for a "flip"......coat of paint here, a re-roof there...what could be easier! But of course there are obstacles!!
The challenge is set for Parker and James and the virtual shack she has inherited. Can they get it ready for sale in three short weeks? Can Parker and James have more than a summer fling? Can they even get that far? And can Parker resolve her issues with the parents that really needed a handbook on parenting? Can James find peace for his past sins?
Ms Higgins characters were more believable than most you read about. I loved Parker and I loved James. Supporting characters were just as awesome as main characters and their motives were very well developed and believable. The storyline was believable and moved smoothly. And true to life there were lots of trials and tribulations along the way to understanding and acceptance and that one true love. It was a story that you could relax and enjoy from start to finish.
I can't say I found anything objectionable or disappointing in this read. Yes, the main characters had sex, but it wasn't depicted in a graphic or unseemly manner. This was a classy romance novel and I enjoyed it immensely. Can we say
