After 15 years, Jacob Steele has returned to his hometown of Riverbend to claim his inheritance. He also wants to check out Kate McMann, the woman who stands to inherit everything if Jacob doesn't fulfill the codicil in his father's will. Jacob, who changed his name to Jay Lawrence, wants to make sure that Kate isn't stealing from his business and his beloved aunts.

Nice solid romance with no surprises. I liked all the characters in this book. I haven't read the other books in the series, but didn't have any problems keeping up with the other characters from previous books. My rating: 4 Stars.

I usually love Ms. Shay's books, but this one was not one of my favorites. I still enjoyed it, but it was not up to her normal standards.

The conditions of a will is what the plot is all about. An estranged son must follow what he considers silly terms to gain his inheritance, or lose it forever. Nevertheless, romance blooms and love conquers all.

Riverbend...home of the River Rats--a group of small-town sons and daughters who've been friends since high school. The River rats are all grown-up now. Living their lives and learning that some days are good and some days aren't--and that you can get through anything as long as you have your friends.

When his father betrayed him, Jacob Steele left Riverbend, vowing never to return. He even changed his name to Jay Lawrence. Fifteen years later, he's back--because of his father's strange will--to claim the inheritance he doesn't want but definitely needs. He's also making sure his maiden aunts are protected from Kate McMann, the woman who stands to inherit if Jay doesn't fulfill the terms of the will.

Jay knows Kate is up to something. And the only way to find out what is to hide his true identity and lie his way into her home. But even jay isn't prepared for what he discovers...
