Veronica Kent is still interested in Caith Breckwood. Oh, yes she is! But he broke her heart years ago and she can’t go through that kind of heartbreak again. But, whether she likes it or not, she has to work with him. She’s managing Stone Willow Lake Lodge where some very strange and scary things have been happening. Caith is now a PI and the CEO of the company for Stone Willow, Caith’s brother, has called him to investigate the goings on.
Even though Caith still feels a strong attraction to Veronica (Ron), he really did not want to return to Stone Willow. It was where he’d lost his best friend, Trask, seventeen years before when a kidnapping went terribly wrong. The anniversary of that event is now coming up. Do the happenings at the lodge relate to the past?
This story makes the reader curious to know not only about the investigation about the strange occurrences but also about the secrets of the characters from the twelve years since they’d been together. There is a strong Breckwood family connection, but there’s also a lot of strife. The story combines mystery and romance, and both are done well. There are several flashbacks to the time when they were all kids and teens living in and around the area. Rating: 4 out of 5.
