This book was a great first draft. As with all first drafts, it needed some polishing, and some filling in. The author had a great plot, but, not enough details. I wanted to know how she struggled and what all she went through to succeed in her business, instead we read that she opens her business on a shoestring and boom, she's rich and owns stores everywhere. The "urst" element was there, (unrequited lust), but was taken a little bit too far and began to get a bit tedious. I would have given this book three stars except that for several chapters the author kept mentioning "ice tea", over and over. Now one grammatical error is understandable, but to keep saying it over and over again really gets on one's nerves and takes away from the story. Why not serve lemonade or bourbon, at least she could spell it.
The successful owner of a chain of coffee bars returns to her 10th high school reunion, only to discover that she must pay for the money from her past that she founded her business with, and she finds love along the way.
This was a very good book one of my favorites so far of Fern Michaels.
Wonderful book. I love all of Fern Michaels books. She has a special way of telling a story so you believe your there. 1-5 I give this book a 5.
Fern Micheals always writes great books.

The same twist of fate that makes a woman rich beyond her wildest dreams properls her toward unexpected danger & real treasure waiting at the end of the rainbow. An enraged thief, who has served time for a bank robbery ten years ago, is coming to reclaim his loot.
This book pulls on the right and wrong of your conscience. There was a bank robbery, Annie ended up with the money being thrown in her car. Would you keep it? And what would you do with it if you did? That was what Annie had to deal with. For over 13 years she had to live with her conscience and how it effected her life. Nice book on morals. There is friendship, love and deception thrown in too. I enjoyed this book.
It came out of the blue. A half million dollars on graduation day. For Anna Daisy Clark, it was the capital she needed to start a business and secure her future. It was also money that didn't belong to her. Vowing to pay back every penny on day, she kept the bag of cans and never looked back.
