"Engaging romantic suspense"
In Puffin Harbor, Maine, Rachel Foster is unhappy to learn
that the owner of Sub Rosa, the seaside mansion she and
her father designed, is coming to take up residence.
Rachel knows that the mansion is the place where tragedy
ended in the murders of her mother and their parents' best
friend by their father who committed suicide right
afterward. However, she learns that her father and his
former pal had been art thieves stealing millions and her
dad has left it up to her to rectify the situation anyway
The new owner Keenan Oakes and his five male disciples
arrive as Rachel sneaks into the building. He catches
her, but she temporarily escapes. Kee forces the issue of
Rachel staying with him and his men allegedly to help them
open up the state of the art technological house, but in
reality he wants to keep an eye on her and not just
because he does not trust her. As Rachel and Kee fall in
love, he has kept secrets from her while she fears that
once he learns her deepest concerns involving her father
he will end their relationship.
This is an engaging romantic suspense that has several
late surprising twists that will keep readers guessing on
who did what to whom. The story line is at its best when
Kee and Rachel battle even as they fall in love with one
another. Hopefully, future tales starring the disciples
and her sister will be coming soon as Janet Chapman
seduces her audience with this enjoyable tale.
