When a young woman inherits a rundown mansion, the last thing she expects to find is the key to her heart…
Abby Foster is a fish out of water in the Maine coastal town of Jewell Cove. The crumbling Foster estate, left to her by a relative she never even knew, has everyone’s eyes on her—an eerie reminder of the long-buried family secrets that have haunted her…forever. Single, stunning, and sometimes too strong-willed for her own good, Abby’s plan is to sell the house and hightail it back to Nova Scotia. But another part of her is intrigued by the idea of starting over somewhere new—and finally learning the truth about her heritage.
The House On Blackberry Hill
Enter Tom Arseneault. The best contractor in Jewell Cove, Tom is determined to restore the beauty and prestige of the Foster mansion—and maybe even work his charms on its beautiful new heir. The attraction between him and Abby is undeniable, and the more time Tom spends on the house the more he wants to be in it with her. But Abby’s not sure she can trust him—or anyone in Jewell Cove who seems to know more about her family history than she does. Home: Is it really where the heart is after all?
You’ve read this story before. Girl goes to quaint, lovable town to fix up the house she inherited before going back to her life somewhere else. Along the way, she falls for hot contractor Guy who makes her change her mind about what she thought she wanted. While the plot for The House on Blackberry Hill isn’t very original, I think you’ll like these characters and their chemistry. There’s a little mystery and a lot of characters we can’t wait to get to know more. A fluffy, sweet romance–perfect for Summer!
