|I believe this is the best book I have ever read! I probably think something similar when I finish a book, but I have never before printed the words. Lani Morgan had relocated to Victoria, Australia, to try to start over. Never again would she allow anyone to get close to her just because she was rich. She wouldn’t lie about it; she would just keep her mouth shut. She had always been quiet and withdrawn from the hub of activity, so that should not be too hard! When she met Ryan Bayliss, a realtor, she thought she noticed some interest—until she mentioned that she needed a farm to board her horse. He seemed to lose interest in helping her find a home after that!
Ryan was certainly in no hurry to find her a property to buy, which surprised Lani since she was willing to pay a lot of money, in cash! Entering his office to discuss the problem with him one day, she encountered a young man, Valentine (Val) and his younger sister, Susie. She had seen Val while she was riding one day and he had been courteous to her. Now he suggested that she rent the flat above their home until she could find something.
Apprehensive, she thought these were the children of Ryan’s partner, but she met their grandfather and he was excited, as were the children, so she decided to rent the flat. After all, she was lonely and this would allow her to be part of a family, sort of!
Ms. Tricia McGill knows that the readers will all know this situation is just “an accident waiting to happen,” but she keeps enticing us into the story with her wit and charming manner of writing. Of course, there is love and there is disaster. The love ebbs and flows and the “near hits and misses” just tug at the heartstrings. The ending may be predictable (after all, who wants a bad ending) but the journey is unforgettable! I urge you to read this winner!
