A fun, romantic romp. Characters are colorful, the mystery aspect adds spice.
A nice Christmas story to make you believe again.
Holly's crush on the next door neighbor's blinds her to the attractions of other men, to the point that she persuades her family to buy the vacation home where she met him. As an adult, she begins to see the teenage crush for what it was, especially while in the company of Nick Taggert, who makes her laugh. Good read.
Holly thinks she is in love with her once summer crush so now as an adult she convinves her parents to buy a home near his in the hopes that now a real relationship is possible.
But a Stranger, Nick Taggart, is too much of a distraction to be believed! Soon she has to make a choice from her long time dream and the chance of real love.
Another well written story by Deveraux.
Jude Deveraux is always a very good read.
