And who better to provide it than charming, fun-loving Robin?She expected everyone to be delighted for her. But her friends and family are suspicious of Robin. And Rebecca, a desperate single mother who Cath has hired as a live-in housekeeper, doesn’t trust him either. He’s too slick, he’s too perfect and it all happened too fast… how well does Cath really know him?Cath is used to taking care of herself; she’s nobody’s fool. But when things start to go wrong in the house that’s been her haven for all these years, she’s forced to ask herself whether the man she loves is really what he seems… And having let Rebecca in to every part of her life, is Cath ready to face the secrets she might find there?
Love is blind. I think this is a saying everybody knows. When you are in love, you only see someone’s good side and even if there are some things that you like less, you still are trying to find excuses. Or worse maybe, you believe their excuses because they seem to genuine. You fall for it each and every time, but that should not stop you from falling in love. There really are some true gems out there. The problem often is to find them. 😊
Cath is on cloud nine. She has found such a gem. He his handsome, successful, loves her to bits. Her friends and family are not exactly on her side, but she decides to follow her heart. She deserves some happiness, doesn’t she?
Thank God she has found Rebecca. Consumed by her love life and her busy job, Cath needs someone she can trust to take care of her home and her mother. She should really thank her lucky stars for sending her two gems, doesn’t she?
Has love blocked her common sense too or does she see what others don’t? Is she on the way to her happy ever after or will she end up alone again?
I enjoyed this story a lot. When you meet some of the characters you immediately connect with them. Others not so. But when do you really know someone? When do you realize they are genuine or when do you start seeing through them? Sometimes you need a little help. 5 stars
Thank you, Kerry Fisher and Bookouture
