The setting Tranquility House a remote retreat containing plenty of private rooms and romantic hideaways But how far will CJ go to get what he wants? And for that matter how far will Angel?

    DO NOT BELIEVE THE BACK OF THE BOOK THIS IS NOTHING LIKE THE SYNOPSIS see belowWhen the Artist of the Heart is killed in a accident the whole world mourns Well everyone except Angel who knows the real Stephan as the man who abandoned her as a child Angel is now a reporter and decides to do the story of the year by exposing Stephan Cooper is the brother in law of Stephan and knows what he has to do is be there for his sister That is his point in life Or at least what he has left of his life But when Angel walks into the funeral he knows she is trouble but can't seem to stay away from her Angel is the definition of the woman with daddytrust issues She claims she will never love because what is the point when men leave? Cooper has some health issues and figures why not enjoy life as long as it does not lead to love because he would only have to leave in one way or another What a pair they makeThe book is good Not one of the best from Ridgway but I enjoyed in and read it in 2 days But there are alot of issues with these people and it can get pretty deep What I tell you to read it? Of course it's Christie Ridgway Would I tell you to have this be the first of her books you read? NO Possible spoilers The back of the book says And there's nothing like the reading of a will to bring people out of the woodwork especially relatives you never knew you had There is no WILL I spent the whole time waiting for the reading for Angel's deception to be revealed but there was no will at all No relatives came out of the woodwork because she knew all the relatives within the first 30 pages The back reads a hunky man Angel is thrilled to learn is not any kind of cousin at all hello We see Cooper in the first few pages and there is no question he is not a cousin Back of book Angel knows he'll try to woo her into submission Cooper does not know who she is until the last chapter or two so when exactly was the wooing supposed to get started?While we know what happens to Beth Cooper's other sister we never read what happens to Lainey the widow or Katie the other daughter of Stephan What happened to them? It really left us wondering what they will do now Again this all being said it was a good book Just not one of Ridgway's best
