Cassie Whittington’s inheritance of $15 million is on hold while vengeful family members contest the will. But the potential loss is the least of her worries – her ex-husband has re-entered her life and is wreaking havoc on her relationship with Sam Barlow, her boss at the landscape company. Cassie has to make a choice: return to her old life with Charlie or start a new life with Sam. An added complication is a police investigation involving Livvie, Cassie’s dearest friend, and Livvie’s fiancé, who is accused of murdering the head chef at a prestigious local restaurant. Truffles and treachery may combine, preventing Cassie from making any choices ever again.
Poor Cassie, I don’t think she knows if she’s coming or if she’s going. I love her character and her wit! On the one hand she appears a bit like an airhead but really she’s sharp as a tack and nothing escapes her. I think the hardest part of her relationship with Sam is putting up with his ex-wife Sheilah who, in my opinion, is a real witch. Between being there for Livvie, sorting out her feelings for her ex-Charlie, keeping her relationship with Sam going, and being forced to make decisions that are difficult, Cassie handles herself with a tempered hand but still can’t decide what she ultimately wants to do. I can’t wait to read the last book in this series so I can find out!
This was an excellent read, had me pulled in from page one and I’d highly recommend it to anyone.
