NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Mariah Stewart presents
a captivating contemporary romance novel in the tradition of
Robyn Carr, Susan Mallery, and Barbara Freethy.
As the only child of a wealthy investment manager, Ellie
Chapman has never known anything besides a life of perfect
privilege. But her years of good fortune come to an abrupt
end when her father is exposed for swindling billions of
dollars from innocent investors in a massive Ponzi scheme.
And just like that, Ellie loses everything: money, job,
homeâ€”even her fiancĂ©, whoâ€™s jailed as her fatherâ€™s partner
in crime. With no job prospects on the horizon, no cash, and
her family name in tatters, Ellie has only one place to go.
Sleepy St. Dennis, Maryland, is hardly where Ellie intends
to stay, however. Keeping her identity a secret, she plans
to sell the house her late mother left her in the small town
and use the proceeds to move on with her life.
Unfortunately, her ticket to a new beginning is in dire need
of a laundry list of pricey improvements, many of which
sheâ€™ll have to do herself. And until the house on Bay View
Road is fit to be sold, the sole place Ellie will be
traveling is the hardware store. But as the many charms of
St. Dennisâ€”not to mention Cameron Oâ€™Connor, the handsome
local contractor who has secrets of his ownâ€”begin to work
their magic, what begins as a lesson in do-it-yourself
renovations might just end up as Ellieâ€™s very own rejuvenation.
