    5-0 out of 5 stars This Is A Good Book!
    I like Betty Neels and I find her books addicting. When I read her books I just can't put them down until I have finished reading the last page and Off With The Old Love was definitely a book that I couldn't put down until the end and I loved every little detail she put in her story, those details made it seem more real to me and I found it to be an interesting and entertaining book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not too Detailed for Me!
    Off with the Old Love is a wonderful book,Betty Neels always writes wonderful sweet books that have nice, simple characters who aren't over-the-top and fussy but more like real people. I love romance books where I feel I can somehow relate to the heroine. Too detailed? Not for me, I like how detailed her books are about English hospitals, stores furniture, food, etc. And I also love her details about Holland, it's all very interesting, but History was one of my favorite subjects in School so I like Betty Neels History book type details which I don't think over shadows the romance parts of the book. And of course I have to very highly recommend this book! All my personal opinion of course!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Too Detailed
    Have read some of her books and this was not as good as her others that I have read. It was too detailed and she repeated herself too much as far as going into her job in the surgery theatre. Could have had a little moreromance in it. When I read a romance, I like more "Romance" init. Just dropped you at the end where she could have continued a little atleast. Broke the news to family and had them get married. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Why get married?
    Back Cover description:An offer she couldn't refuse...a nursing job in Holland was the only way Lavinia Hawkings could ensure a home and security for herself and her young sister Peta.Yet within weeks of arriving she was married to the devastating Professor Radmer ter Bavinck!Radmer had assured Lavinia that the marriage would be on a friendly basis only--he needed a kind stepmother for his daughter and a competent housekeeper to run his home.It seemed to be the ideal arrangement-- for everyone except Lavinia!

    The plot was slow.I agree with the reveiwer from Santa Fe that this story could have been better.Do the two main characters even like one another? It's hard to tell.The ending was strange too.Are these two even happy?Not what I consider a good story from this author.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A different Neels story.
    I have read a lot of Betty Neels books and out of them all I have to say that this is my least favorite.The heroine of the story spends her time wondering why she agreed to a marriage of convenience to a man who spends the entire book being remote and angry.It had a promising beginning and the ending was mediocre. I was left wondering if the ending was really a happy one or not. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars So-so romantic anthology (2 1/2 stars)...
    I picked up this romantic anthology last summer on a whim. I'd decided not to review it when I realized that these stories were reprints and had been around for a long time. I was cleaning up my library, ready to give some books away to friends, when I came about Under His Skin again. Despite the mediocrity of this anthology, I somewhat enjoyed Lori Foster's Outrageous. It is the story of a young woman's quest to find the person who had sold a gun that had backfired and almost killed her brother. But in doing so she almost blows Judd Sander's cover. He, too, is searching for the person selling illegal weapons. He reluctantly accepts to help Emily. However, it won't be easy keeping his hands off the beautiful woman. The other two novellas -- Carla Neggers's Bewitching and Linda Lael Miller's Snowflakes on the Sea -- were ho hum at best. I didn't even bother to finish reading Snowflakes.

    All in all, this is a mediocre anthology. Harlequin should have reprinted stronger novellas. Lori Foster is one of the best soft romantica writers of this time. I enjoyed Outrageous, even though the aforementioned novella isn't one of Foster's best efforts (this is one of her early works). If you're looking for soft romantica to read on the beach, I'd advise you to check out the Kensington Brava novels and anthologies instead. This one just isn't good enough...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Taking the good with the bad.
    This reprint of 3 stories is redeemed by the inclusion of "Outrageous" by Lori Foster (pub. 1997) and also by the originally-written novella "Bewitching" by Carla Neggers (pub. 1993).

    Unfortunately, the sad, sorry mess of Linda Lael Miller's "Snowflakes on the Sea" (pub. 1984) might be enough to put some readers off if they take the first story in the book as an indication of the quality of the latter two. Miller's story is a disjointed story with the protagonists repeating the same patterns again and again. Miller's female lead character Mallory is a sap - I found little to sympathize or empathize with in Mallory. The story wanders around until it just seems to finally come to a conclusion just to bring things to an end, and an unsatisfying end, at that.

    That said, I would recommend this book for Foster's (always a treat) and Negger's novellas, however overall I can only give this book 3 stars because of the amount of paper wasted by "Snoflakes on the Sea", the longest novella in this collection. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars The plot is well written, but the ending........
    When I finished, I reread the ending to see if I was missing something. The story fell through a hole into the ending. I am thinking: "what happened? wasn't she...? isn't he...? what about....? " and all I have is THE END.

    Don't get me wrong, a person can really relate with her and her problem, but they seem unsolved.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent romance with strong heroine
    I think this is one of the best stories Betty Neel ever wrote. Particularly good is a scene near the end of the book where Eloise is serving as school nurse/matron at a boys' school and saves a small, bullied boy from attempting to jump from a ledge. The hero, Timon, turns up in time to help them both, but I got the impression that Eloise could have saved the boy even without the hero's timely appearance. (The school staff eventually handles the bullying problem in an intelligent way.)

    Eloise is a strong-minded heroine who takes no nonsense from anyone, yet is properly compassionate to those who need it. She doesn't really need the hero to make her life complete. But how wonderful for her that he showed up anyway! I would definitely recommend this book!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Edgy
    Back Cover description:"He's something of a catch you know".Eloise was told about the handsome Dr. Timon van Zeilst."But no one's caught him yet."Eloise felt quite sure that it wouldn't be her. Why should he look twice at a plain English nurse with the beautiful Liske around? And Liske had claimed she was destined to be his wife.It was no good telling herself not to care, because she did--even if he was the most infuriating man she'd ever met!

    This was somewhat typical of Ms. Neels plots;doctor, plain nurse, female villain and misunderstandings.In this story however, there seemed to me to be a little more tension/edginess to the story than I usually get with Ms. Neels books.I liked it, just can't put my finger on what was different. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Started well... then went downhill
    As a great fan of romantic suspense, I was really excited by the premise and the interesting beginning of the novel... but as it went along I found myself getting frustrated and wanting to throw the book across the room. Tess's (the heroine's) thoughts seemed to jump around, stupid choices were made (for a supposedly smart woman) and scenes and dialog were sometimes hard to follow. Motivations were often unclear and information omitted. The relationship between Tess and Andrew was very tepid - there was little hint of true passion and growing affection between them, and their meager love scenes were mediocre. The characters of Dolly and Harl were sweet and/or quirky, but not enough to rescue the novel's flaws. I felt sadly let down at the end and expected better of Carla Neggers. I'm not sure that I would buy this author again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars AN EXCITING, SUSPENSEFUL READ!
    Ms. Neggers books keep getting better and better. The Carriage House is a wonderful. Its packed with suspense,humor and romance. Ms. Neggers writing style brings the characters vividly to life.

    Tess Haviland, is an independent woman looking for answers. Andrew, is her neighbor, with a 6,going on 20,year old daughter, who knows it all. Throw in a few shady(?)characters and you're hooked.

    If you're looking for a good read, you can't do any better than The Carriage House.

    2-0 out of 5 stars This book started great, but then it went to the dumps.
    When a person finds a dead body in the basement, you call the police. I can not believe that Tess did not do that. After that the book seemed to go down hill. I figured out that Ike was the skeleton and who had killed him before I was even half way through the book.
    I did enjoy the interactions of the characters to each other. I really enjoyed Dolly Thorne's daughter, the little princess. I like that Tess was not any wimp by any standards, and the fact that she was not perfect in figuring out the mystery. I would not recommend this book for the suspense, but I would recommend this book as a good romance.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good read, solid characters and plot
    I enjoyed this book - it had solid characters and it was nice to revisit people from prior books. This book was superior to The Cabin, in my opinion, and thank goodness she cut down on the "texas ranger" phrase. Perhaps I'm missing something, but Neggers seems obsessed with overusing phrases in her writing, and if there is one downfall in this book, that would be it.. using one phrase over and over again. Tess was a strong female character, and Sam was a good match for her, and the murder plot was interesting too, although some parts (like the kids running amuck) were hard to believe. Overall, an improvement from The Cabin.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not that great
    This was an average book - it kept me interested, but barely. I've been enjoying Neggers' books for a few months now, but this was my least favorite. The romance was barely in the book at all - the two main characters hardly even interacted and we're supposed to believe they're in love after two kisses? Yeah. Anyway, the suspense wasn't all that captivating either, and the main character (Tess) was rather cold towards her family, I thought. I think Neggers is a good writer though and would suggest starting with some of her other material first. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not her best
    Back Cover description:Could she cope with the Savage family? Louisa didn't want to marry the boring Frank, nor did she want to live with her stepmother.She was fortunate to get, after completing her training, what sounded like a pleasant and challenging nursing job--in Norway!Louisa was delighted, even though her patient, Claudia Savage, did cause some problems--not helped by the austere unco-operative attitude of Claudia's brother Simon.She couldn't understand why he was so disagreeable...

    This is the first Betty Neels story I've read where the hero wasn't a doctor and the setting wasn't Holland/Netherlands. The descriptions of Norway were fine. What I didn't like was the plot.The patient is an alcoholic. No one tells Louisa that, not the two doctors, not the brother (until halfway through the book). This is the first book of Ms. Neels where the doctors actually are incompetent.What else could you say it is when the two doctors never say to the nurse what the problem is-they gloss it over with euphemisms.I never warmed up to the hero, there was just something I found unattractive.If that wasn't enough, Claudia has a miracle cure for her drinking-she falls in love.Sorry, I just can't buy this storyline. ...

Determined to tie the case up, Maggie heads to upstate New York following a questionable lead. Knowing she's holding back on him, Rob's right on her tail. And now she has no choice but to trust him.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Cinderella-or better, Jane Eyre
    Back Cover description: "A rather dull girl...with no looks to speak of." Doctor Charles Trescombe's opinion of his niece's governess was far from complimentary. Cordelia knew she was plain. She also knew what good manners were, and the high-and-mighty doctor didn't have any! But there was magic in Vienna that could transform even the most unlikely people. Much to her dismay, Cordelia fell in love with him anyway. And Charles soon discovered that quiet and unassuming ways had a knack of stealing a man's heart--without him even realizing it.

    This is one of the better Betty Neels books. It's the first I've read that takes place in Vienna. Both Charles and Cordelia are English. She is governess to his niece (a temporary post). The descriptions of the city are done so that you'd like to go there. Ms. Neels describes the food and clothing with an eye to detail. I love the way she gives the whole menu everytime anyone eats. Good story, strong heroine and love. Another hit by a terrific author.

    5-0 out of 5 stars CINDERELLA STORIES ARE ALWAYS THE BEST
    This is absolutely one of my very favorite Betty Neels books. I must admit to a special fondness for her Cinderella stories. No one tells them better. This book has the wickedly delicious cold stepmother and evil little stepchildren, the heroine determined to escape and make her way in a world that is not always kind to poor hard-working people, the silly little selfish spoiled women of the world, and the dusty, moldy, old-before-his-time unsuspecting lovable hero. You will sigh and cry and not be able to put it down !
    A joy for loyal Neels readers and a wonderful introduction to the Neels magic for new readers.
    If they ever get smart enough to put it out in some hard cover form, I will snap up a copy - as I have dog eared my current copy !!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Magic In Vienna
    This story is about a girl strong enough to leave a bad home situation to better herself. She has some set-backs and disappointments but never gives up. And, along the way she meets a very nice man who takes a while to realize that this is his soulmate! As always Betty Neels has delivered a truly sweet romance. The characters a very believeable. If you are a fan of a true romance, and not a story where they jump into an intimate relationship after knowing each other for five minutes then Betty Neels is the author for you. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My sentiments exactly
    This is a great story. I will not go into my synopsis as the other two reviewers before me did a terrific job at it. I enjoyed the chemistry between Annie and Garvin. I was completely shocked to find out who the real killer was as usually I can figure it out before it's disclosed. My guesses were wrong. This was my second Carla Neggers book, my first was Kiss the Moon, another good story. I will definitely read more of her, a terrific writer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Impossible to but down!
    Very Highly Recommended - After the death of her beloved Grandmother, and a storm that swept her Maine home into the sea, Annie Payne packed her car with a few remaining possessions, Otto, a mild-mannered rottweiler, and headed for San Francisco. Using the last of the insurance money, she opens an art gallery in a converted Victorian. Carrying an eclectic mix of art and crafts, the shop reflects its owner: warm, inviting, and all together too trusting. It is precisely this attribute that embroils Annie in a five-year-old double murder when she agrees to bid on a painting at an auction. When the portrait turns-out to be that of the murdered woman, and the man who bids against her, the widower, Annie knows she's in way over her head. Yet loyalty to the old lady who hired her to buy the painting runs deep. Annie is not one to cut and run at the first signs of trouble, but trouble, named Gavin MacCrae, soon comes knocking at her door. Despite the brutal death of his wife, Gavin forged ahead with his life, leaving his former job to open a marina. If not happy, he is at least content -- until he meets Annie. Old memories begin to surface as do people from his past. Annie's fierce loyalty and tenacious determination to solve the double murder anger and intrigue him. She brings him back to life with her youthful exuberance, and awakens a seething passion only she can tame. The attraction between Annie and Gavin sizzles as they desperately attempt to find the murderer before he makes another attack. From the social art scene in San Francisco to the picturesque waterfront of Marin County, Just Before Sunrise weaves a classic mystery of romance and intrigue. Carla Neggers knows the secret to good writing. She introduces her characters with finesse and understandings, letting the reader discover their idiosyncrasies and quirks. Before we know it they worm their way into our hearts. Ms. Neggers masters the art of storytelling. Plotting is her specialty. A book with her name on the cover assures an excellent read. Kathee S.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Anni moves to California to start over and finds love&danger
    When a coastal storm washed away Annie Payne's home, she is left with nothing but her grandmother's painting and her rottweiller. Deciding to start anew, Annie heads to San Francisco where she opens up an art gallery. Annie has no concept of what she has agreed to when she accepts a commission to bid on a painting by a reclusive artist named Sarah at the Linwood estate. When she arrives at the auction, she finds herself in a bidding war with Gavin McRae, the widower of the model in the portrait. Annie later learns that Gavin's wife and grandfather were both murdered in the same room only a day apart five years ago. The two people who may have the answers and the motivation for the crime, Sarah and her shady boy friend, Vic, vanished into thin air. Now Sarah and Vic have re-surfaced and Gavin is following Annie because he hopes to find the missing couple and because he cares for her. Annie is torn between her feelings towards Gavin and her need to protect Sarah. However, she cannot help but being thrust into a maelstrom of danger that could cost Annie her life. Carla Neggers' brand of New England charm and humor would normally be out of place in the Bay area, but the writer's talent manages to enhance the tale with its uniqueness and freshness. JUST BEFORE SUNRISE is an exciting romantic suspense that sizzles with passion and a complex story line that turns the novel into another Neggers' winner. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I loved Reading this Book!
    I didn't find the Quiet Professor by British romance book author Betty Neels to be stale at all and I really liked it, Sure some of her books have different characters in the same situations like an English nurse falling for a Dutch doctor but her books are so well written that each books situations always seem like it's totally new and I really liked the characters, the English nurse Megan Rodner and the Dutch doctor Jake Van Belfeld and in this book instead of being written as a girl plain in looks Megan is described as being very pretty so to me that is different than a lot of Betty's books where the plain or homely girl falls for the handsome doctor and wins his heart even though I still love her plain girl handsome guy love stories and I love reading about what is the same and what is different about the medical field in America and Europe! I highly recommend this sweet endearing book!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Sterile dressing
    I've always enjoyed Betty Neels' books, as they're usually light but satisfying. This book was okay, but no where near her best. Megan is a nurse who is working with the imminent Dutch doctor, Jake van Belfeld. He falls for her nearly immediately, but for Megan, she's in a stale engagement with very 'suitable' Oscar, with whom she shares little to no passion, but she's very comfortable with and believes is best for her. But when Oscar falls for megan's little sister, Megan does the honorable thing and backs out. What she doesn't realize is Dr. Benfeld is waiting for her to realize that HE'S the man of her dreams, but it takes forever for Megan to wake up and smell the antiseptic. I thought she was often a very annoying character, who didn't see anything unless its spelled out for her. But Dr. Benfeld could be just as annoying, as it was hard to realize he loved her until the very end. In fact, more than once you felt he couldn't stand her! But he was a patient man, and waited for her to open her eyes. So, I found this book light in the romance department, but I'll give it a thumbs up if you like your romance a little stale.

    Book Description

    In a small coastal Maine town, a killer strikes -- then disappears without a trace.

    Shattered by her father's murder, Zoe West abandoned her plans to become an FBI agent and left her hometown of Goose Harbor, Maine. But a new home and job did nothing to get her life back on track, and now Zoe knows only one thing will -- returning to Goose Harbor and confronting the past.

    FBI Special Agent J. B. McGrath is "on vacation" -- the Bureau's version of "Get your act together, or else . . ." Burned-out after working undercover for a year, J.B. agrees he needs a break, and chooses Goose Harbor as a retreat. But he isn't lying low. He believes a killer is still loose in the town -- a killer who isn't happy to see Zoe West return.Zoe isn't sure she can trust the unpredictable FBI agent -- or their growing attraction to each other. But as the danger mounts, one wrong move could destroy everything she and J.B. care about. Because someone got away with murder and is determined to keep it that way. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars liked the book alot
    This is the first novel that I have read by Carla Neggers. While I do not find her prose to be a sophisticated as say Iris Johansen, I am a big fan of mystery romance, and Carla Neggers can spin a tale. I have a six month old daughter so my choices in literature have run to books that are not that difficult to read and keep up with, but still hold the reader in suspense (and a little bit of romance doesn't hurt when your at home alone all day with a baby!). I was pleasantly surprised by this book and intend to read more of Ms. Neggars works.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Read, Good Fun,
    This book engrossed me from the beginning, both the characters and the locale were intriguing. The combination of family tensions and the mystery gives it depth and poignancy. The writing is crisp, the descpritions vivid, the page turning unavoidable. You find yourself intrigued and engaged until the very end.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Very average - the town is the star here
    This is the first book I have read by Carla Neggers and it may be my last. The story has been pretty well summarized by previous reviewers so I won't repeat that here.

    I found Ms Neggers creation of the little harbor town in Maine (not Vermont) to be very compelling. It was almost like being there on a terrific visit. This and the fairly fast paced mystery kept me reading to the end.

    Unfortunately, I found the characters sort of static. Both the hero, JB and the heroine, Zoe were drawn very well - with lots of unresolved personal issues that had tons of potential for development; alas, that's all it was: "potential", very little character development took place.

    I also enjoyed watching the mystery unfold, although I twigged the probable villan early on - due to lack of believable alternatives. There were lots of potential suspects, but most - to me at least - were too sterotyped to be the real bad guy.

    What really turned me off - and why I probably won't read any more books by this author - is that the motive for the crime came out of "left field". Unless I missed something pretty subtle, there were no clues to be followed. Which is pretty ironic, when Zoe muses on why she enjoys her deceased Great Aunt Olivia's books so much: the "basic premise" behind them is that "Jan Periwinkle" - Great Aunt Olivia's fictional detective - solved her mysteries "by following clues"!

    Ah well - at least I finished it; I have no desire whatsoever to re-read it though and for me that's what makes a keeper.

    5-0 out of 5 stars FAST PACE, SUSPENSEFUL, GREAT READ
    Carla Neggers has once again given us a story with great characters, fast pace dialogue,an intriguing, suspenseful plot, and as always a hero to sigh over. I have yet to be disappointed in anything written by Ms. Neggers. She gets better and better with each book. Its easy to see why The Harbor made the New York Times bestseller list, as well as The USAToday top list. If you're looking for a good book to read, you can't go wrong with The Harbor. Its money well spent.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This one sizzles.
    Once again Vermont is the setting for one of Carla Negger's suspense filled romances. J.B. McGrath turns his forced vacation into work when he is drawn into investigating the murder of a local Goose Harbor resident and the burglaries that have struck his youngest daughter's cafe. He finds himself with an unwanted assistant, former detective Zoe West, who has come home to face the ghosts she left behind her. Those same ghosts are a part of the current investigation, as it is her father's murder and her sister's cafe that have caught J.D.'s attention.

    Small towns are filled with secrets and rivalry, Goose Harbor no less than any other. Digging for the truth will expose many of these, and force Zoe to face the destiny that she fled. Despite her and J.D's best intentions, they can not fight the heated attraction between them for very long, thus making their risks seem greater and more personal.

    ***** With an uncertain future ahead for both of them, and slim chances for survival to make the choices they must, Zoe and J.D. sizzle throughout this novel, ala MOONLIGHTING style. Carla Neggers delivers her classic story, making good use of the world she is most familiar with, small town Vermont. *****

    5-0 out of 5 stars Strong heroine
    Maggy MacFergus is a highly competent nurse who meets Dr. Paul Doelsma while she is nursing his mother in the hospital. After Maggy saves his mother's life during a heart attack, Dr. Doelsma is grateful, and invites Maggy to Holland to continue to nurse his mother there. Maggy accepts. She also is attracted to Paul. In addition to appreciating her professional capabilities, he is also one of the few men around who is taller than she is, (Maggy is six feet tall). But will Paul return her affection?

    I liked this early Betty Neels book. Maggy is a strong heroine, who doesn't take any nonsense. She may (mistakenly) believe that she is unattractive to men because of her size, but she is never self-pitying about it, simply going on with her life and becoming the best professional --and person-- she can be. This leads into the greatest reward she can imagine. And of course, Betty Neels' colorful description of Holland is always a winning background. I would highly recommend this story. ... Read more

    A: Apple -- some say this forbidden fruit started men and women down the path of sinful pleasure...

    One Night of Passion …

    Just because small-town librarian and single mom Jenifer Wright does not need a man doesn't mean she doesn't want one. She'd love to meet the right guy who'd be willing to explore the naughty and the unknown with her -- sensible, capable, practical Jenifer Janey Wright -- and not insist on putting a ring on her finger. One look at sexy, mysterious Eric Hamilton and she can read right off the bat that he's the love 'em and leave 'em type, the perfect partner for exploring her sensual fantasies from A to Z!

    … Or a Lifetime of Love?

    Undercover agent Eric Hamilton is in Doolittle, Arkansas, only long enough to break up a funny-money ring. He's certain this sexy librarian is involved in some way. It's hard to stay all-business when it's his job to get as close as it takes to his suspects, especially when Jenifer makes him an offer no hot-blooded man could resist. Can Eric only play at love or has this surprisingly tender and vulnerable woman captured not only his imagination -- but also his heart?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sexy Romantic Drama!
    "Love:Undercover," by talented writer, Hailey North, is a sexy romantic drama that held me hostage recently for a few glorious hours one lazy hot afternoon. The characters are well-developed which make them seem very real and the plot is both exciting and sexy. I believe anyone that enjoys this genre will devour this book! (Highly Recommended!)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love This Book

    4-0 out of 5 stars engaging romantic suspense
    In Doolittle, Arkansas, librarian Jenifer Wright raises her twins by herself as the father dropped her the moment she mentioned pregnancy. However, she currently feels a bit lonely though surrounded by the love of her extended family because her darlings Autumn and Adam are away on college scholarships.

    FBI undercover agent Eric Hamilton arrives at the library allegedly seeking information for his Virginia based investment firm. In fact Eric is trying to find the connection between Jenifer and two money laundering thugs as he has a photo of the trio together. As he meets her family and gets to know Jenifer better, Eric falls in love with her and is willing to risk his life if necessary to keep her safe. Jenifer, who has not needed a man for years, reciprocates wondering if it might be empty nest syndrome.

    This is engaging romantic suspense with the emphasis on the former as the lead couple falls in love under the spot light and encouragement of her family. The story line contains neat tidbits to enhance the flavor for instance; Autumn has a track scholarship while Adam is on an academic scholarship. Tiny gems like that augment a fabulous tale even if the intrigue arrives late.

    Book Description

    Once again, New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers masters the nonstop suspense and pulse-pounding romance that keep her millions of readers up all night.

    Vermont newspaper editor Cozie Hawthorne is astounded by the money she makes when her collection of Yankee essays becomes a bestseller. But that doesn't mean she'll let success go to her head: she still drives a rusted Jeep and lives in a house -- built in 1790 -- that seems more amenable to bats than it does interesting men.

    Daniel Foxworth, renegade son of the Texas oil Foxworths, specializes in putting out chemical fires. At least he did until someone sabotaged his helicopter and almost killed him. The prime suspect is Cozie's brother, Seth, and evidence is piling up as fast as attraction is growing between Daniel and Cozie. When she finds out that the sexy Texan is out to prove her brother's guilt, Cozie is determined to find out who's really after Daniel. But as danger mounts, Daniel faces an even greater challenge: winning Cozie's trust...before someone ends up dead. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars TERRIFIC STORY ABOUT FAMILY, LOVE, AND CHANCE!
    This was the first and so far the best Neggers book I have read! I really loved the family connections and the heroine Cozie! :) The new England backround was beautiful and vivid! I highly recommend this book for a nice lazy afternoon read! :)

    3-0 out of 5 stars Okay but lacks intensity.
    I really didn't get to feel much danger in the story bec. that's the way Cozie and Daniel seemed to view the threat. I also disliked the way Daniel interacted with his best friend, J.D. I suppose that some of Daniel's dialogue with J.D. and Cozie was meant to be witty. But they came out rather accusatory instead. Also some of the characters sound like real hypocrites. Cozie and Daniel are also totally blind and stubborn regarding some clues. ... Read more
