This book was very hard to put down. I was amazed at the amount of research the author did in putting the story together. The story begins with Blythe Stowe catching her husband in bed with her sister. Don't get the wrong idea, this isn't a trashy romance novel. I really enjoyed the quotes from Blythe's grandmother from Wyoming. The contrast between her an the 'stuffy Englishman' was fun. Do you have any friends or relatives that are "mad, bad, and dangerous to know"? A great book!
What would you do if you caught your sister in bed with your husband? Chances are at the very least you'd nix your relationship with both of them and run as far away as you could get--especially if the story is going to be plastered allover the tabloids. This is exactly what Hollywood mogul Blythe Stowe does. She heads to England and the Cornish Coast. There she steeps herself in Daphne du Maurier's wonderful novels, finds love with an Englishman, and discovers familysecrets that have been long concealed.
Some might call it running away . . .But after a scandalous Hollywood divorce, Blythe Stowe considered it damage control for body and soul. The pain, the humiliation, the daily tabloids shouting details as her famous husband dumped her for her own sister demanded a serious getaway: to the wild coast of Cornwall and a cottage by the sea that her Wyoming grandmother claimed had been home to her ancestors.Some might call it chance . . . But Blythe encountered more than just a quaint retreat nestled amid vivid skies and gorgeous ocean. And she had the odd sensation that her wickedly handsome neighbor Lucas Teague was more than a British gentleman going broke. He might be her destiny . . .
