. When Harvard-educated supermodel Maggie Malone returns to her hometown after a seven-year absence, she finds that nothing has changed: the citizens of Ruby Falls still can't forget that she was once the town's "wild child." Moreover, although Maggie's mother mourns that her husband cast her oldest daughter aside, Maggie's sisters still regard her with a mixture of delight and disdain for trying to break off middle-sister Laurel's engagement to a despicable, controlling man. And finally, her dying father won't let her near his heartAor the family's failing business, even though she's the only one able to save it. After considerable argument, her father grudgingly agrees to let Maggie (who secretly owns controlling shares in the company) step into his shoes, but only after he instructs his loyal foreman, Dan Garrett, to keep an eye on her. It's a job Dan doesn't want until it becomes obvious that someone is out to sabotage Maggie and the business
A good, quick read. The book kept up a good pace and had a good story line. I liked the lead characters, though I wanted to smack Maggie's dad right upside the head most of the time!! I should have been able to guess who the saboteur was, but I didn't.
"Seven years ago, Maggie Malone left Ruby Falls, TX in total disgrace. The wild child went on to become a million dollar face, an supermodel who still hides her father's rejection behind an outrageous, glamourous lifestyle. Now Maggie Malone has come home.
Home to what? Home to a father who denies her, a family who resents her, home to a town that still talks about her behind her back....the secrets still surround her, the man who wants her....and the treachery closing in on all of them."
This book made me cry in places so it is full of emotion ,both good and bad, wonderful ending!
Good book about a million dollar model coming home to save her father's business, about a father who denies her and a family who resents her. I really enjoyed it
A good book with a shocking ending to say the least. You aren't looking for it. It does read a bit frustrating though.
The other reviews don't give this book justice so it's important to know this is a 4 star book!
From the first I was almost in tears and the last I was in tears! The writing draws you in and you don't want their story to ever end!
I was told Ginna Gray was a great author and she is definately an amazing storyteller. I rarely laugh out loud but found myself laughing at the characters.
Very well written, didn't want to put the book down and I advise you to read this book if you can get your hands on it!
Thank you Ginna Gray!
This book deal with heart issues, Daddys love,being good enough to matter,being thrown out,the father sins and the wife that stands by him......TRUST!
The past does effect today in ways we don't even know.
This is my first Ginna Gray book but not my last. She is a wonderful author.
