Overseer Nicolas Wells had been coming to Mount Desert Island for ten summers to help build cottages for the rich and powerful. Despite his secrets, he had grown comfortable in the peaceful little island town, getting to know its inhabitants and even to consider some of them friends. The eleventh year, however, he arrived to startling news: the island's peace had been shattered by a murder. At the request of the sheriff, Shawn Parnell, Nicolas agreed to hire Philip Hall, the local blacksmith and the probable next victim, in the hope that the secure construction site would be safer than his house in the village. He never expected the decision to lead to danger. Or to love.
...a touching romance that is genuine and timeless. The supporting players are rich and brought even more warmth and appeal to the story. I was guessing who the villain is (different guesses each time!) throughout and I wasn't disappointed with the final reveal. A delightfully sensual romance. 5 of 5 Cherries Chamomile @ Whipped Cream Reviews
