Review by Marlene Engel
Lila Alders is used to the best of the best. Raised in a privileged household and marrying into money, she has always been the envy of others. Now divorced and finding out that she isn’t entitled to her former husband’s fortune, Lila is forced to return to her small childhood town of Black Dog Bay.
With her father’s recent passing and her mother living alone in the family mansion, going back home was the only option. But it’s not until she learns that her father’s fortune is no longer and her mother is in jeopardy of losing the house that reality truly sets in. With a house full of expensive designer clothes, Lila knows that their only hope of keeping the house is by selling off her mother’s prized garments. But getting her mother to agree may be harder than she thought.
It just so happens that Lila’s high school sweetheart Ben is back in town. After trying to see if that flame could be rekindled, it’s obvious that their past relationship is best left, well, in the past. Also crossing paths is a boy that Lila snubbed as a sophomore, who has turned into quite the specimen. More than a pretty face, Malcolm has a fascinating past and secret, hidden talents. She may not have given him much attention in high school, but she is hoping to make up for lost time!
