review 1: I liked the premise of this book, but overall, I found it to be very boring. There was no mystery, Meri finds out almost everything about her past in the first 30 pages or so. The rest of the novel sort of dragged and seemed rather pointless. I didn't care about her work as a restorer, or what happened with that project. There was no romance, and I found it annoying that the author kept hinting at one between Meri and Alden, but nothing happened. Also, she kept referring to him as being old. When one person is 30 and the other is 42, I don't find it to be that big of an age difference. I wasn't invested in any of the characters. One other issue I had was with the way the novel was written. It seemed there were a lot of sentence fragments. There were so many sentences that ... morecould've been combined. I found it irritating. There was nothing that made me want to finish this book, and I skimmed the last 70 pages or so.
review 2: Meri finds out she is adopted. When she turns 30 she thought her boyfriend Peter would propose but he leaves for California, her grandmother gives her a letter from her dead Mother explaining how she came into their family and the neighbor, Alden is there to support her, just as he has for as long as she can remember. This is a good read about searching for a birth family, restoring old mansions and falling in love with your best friend. I have read several of Shelley Noble's books and this one is a feel good read. She's a great writer and look forward to more. less

I hope this turns into a series, because there are a lot of characters that I want to see more of!
I love it when an author can pick more than one plot and make it easy to follow.
Good summer beach book. Easy, quick read with interesting, likable characters.
Great book
