When Norris Finley, Grace’s ill mannered, manipulating boss offers to help her out. Grace as no idea what she is getting herself into.

Will all this trouble cause the family to be pulled apart for ever?

Mystery, family secrets and relationships make this book read like a good drama. There is plenty going on to hold the readers attention. The storyline is excellently thought out and a few twists are added, keeping the reader guessing all the way through the story. I really enjoyed reading this book; it is a book worth reading.
