Cassidy St. Claire still wasn’t sure what she’d been hoping to find when she began the search for her birth parents, but all she’d uncovered was a bunch of death certificates and one ailing great-uncle who’d finally kicked the bucket last week. Since Cassidy is the last surviving member of the family that means his estate, a small seaside bed and breakfast in New Hampshire, has been left to her. An odd stipulation in his Will requires that she appear in person to inherit the property. Cassidy isn’t very hopeful that this weekend trip will lead to anything more than a momentary distraction from her busy life, and an excuse to take her convertible for a long drive up the coast.

Let me start by saying that after Romance, mystery is my next favorite genre. It was a pleasant surprise to get BOTH in this book! In the early chapters we are introduced to the bed and breakfast and learn just how creepy it is.
“This house had such an overwhelming effect on a person’s sense of well-being. It was unnerving.”
Cassidy is a city girl and is pretty far out of her element out in the middle of nowhere. Ben Riley is the brooding man who has been
“Cassidy felt an odd tension building between them, somewhere between hostility and attraction. Both of them were avoiding ey
e contact.”caring for the inn formany years. The two butt heads almost immediately, even though we know that Cassidy finds him attractive. When she learns the stipulation to her uncle’s will (she must stay for 30 consecutive days in the house) it surprises Ben when she agrees to comply.
Ben and Cassidy start some research into the past of the family, they also learn things about each other as they warm up to one another. The story twists and turns and leads you in several different directions, trying to figure the mystery out. I was definitely surprised by the outcome of the book…I totally did not see it coming!Cassidy decides to make herself useful. I loved that she had no problem getting dirty and doing some good old fashioned yard work! She had a point to prove to Ben that she could keep up. The two begin to spend more time together and their stories begin to unravel. Cassidy’s life is in danger, but by who? The Chosen One makes an appearance after several chapters leaving us wondering who he/she is. Let me tell you, I was reading this while vacationing at my cabin in the Poconos and I was instantly FREAKED out….what the f*&k is The Chosen One?
I enjoyed reading this, even if I did have a freak out moment, and I hope you will like it too!
