Holly has a romantic notion of a boy that she met summers ago when she was a teen. She is more interested in the old plantation that his family has and wants to restore it. But she meets a man that she thinks is the gardener who blows all of her plans.
This was interesting as the characters were more on a level playing field and contemporaries. A nice romantic book with some suspense thrown in.

Interesting story. Rich girl meets guy who presents himself as riff-raff. Sparks fly..a whole lot of chemistry happening. Murder and treasure hunts just to add more to the story. I don't want to give the story a way. Quick, fun read.

Loved it--kept my interest the entire time. Jude Deveraux has a way of pulling you into the story so that you just can't put the book down. Holly has some interesting characters, and has a good ending.

Holly is an heiress from a very wealthy family. When she is thirteen years old, she falls in love with Lorrie, a sixteen year old from an old family. They spend the summer together and she never has gotten over him. When Holly grows up and is planning on seeing Lorrie again, she runs into Nick Taggert. She has a passionate affair with Nick, but Holly hopes to end it because Nick is not "marriage material" because, she thinks he's just an average working man and not someone suitable for someone like her. Yes, she is a bit of a snob, but a lovable snob. There is also a conspiracy brewing to murder Holly for her millions. Who should she trust? Lorrie or Nick?
A quick and enjoyable read!

Now a beautiful rich woman Hollys vocation brings her back to Edenton, North Carolina, the site of her first summer love when she was thirteen and where she discovered her lifes ambition. She reconnects with Bell Chere the plantation house which is much in need of repair and Lorrie Beaumont her first serious love who inherited the Revolutionary-period estate. Before she actually gets to Belle Chere or Lorrie, her perfectly planned life takes a side track crossing paths with the attractive and sexy Nick Taggert who comes with secrets of his own. The story moves along well with just enough intrigue and romance to keep you guessing what will happen next.

It was about this couple that didn't want each other to know that they were both from families. The gal in the story was very into old houses and restorations and she had fallen in love with this other boy when she was a teen because she really liked his mansion, but come to find out he really had no money and she ended up falling for another guy who had money but pretended that he didn't so that she would like him for himself and not for his money.

Holly fell in love with Lorrie and his plantation house when she was 13. Now an adult and an heiress, she's learned of his divorce and has come back to try to win him. Her intrepid ways around abandoned old homesteads brings Nick in her life, however, who appears to be a good ole boy, definitely beneather her notice.

This book had many things that interested me -- I too love old houses and have done some renovation. But the author tries to make Holly very likeable despite the entire story hinging around her very unpleasant snobbishness.
