Jocelyn Minton is a woman torn between two worlds. Her mother grew up attending private schools and afternoon teas, but she married the local handyman. After her mother died when Joce was only five years old, her father remarried into his own class, and Joce became an outsider—until she met Edilean Harcourt. Although she was sixty years Joce’s senior, Miss Edi was a kindred soul who understood her like no one else ever had.

When Miss Edi passes away, she leaves Joce all her worldly possessions, including an eighteenth-century house and a letter with clues to a mystery that began in 1941. In the letter, Miss Edi also mentions that she has found the perfect man for Joce—a handsome young lawyer. Joce is shocked to learn that the mystery, the house, and the future love of her life are all in Edilean, a small town in Virginia that Miss Edi never told her about. Hurt that the woman who meant so much to her kept so many secrets, Jocelyn moves to this tight-knit village in an attempt to understand the legacy that has been left to her. As she begins to dig into Miss Edi’s mystery, she discovers some shocking surprises about her family’s history and her own future—and she meets a man with his own mysterious past.

    Publishers Weekly

    " The storyline was pretty predictable but I still enjoyed it! "

    " This was a fluff book, but really silly and not one I'd recommend as it took forever to get the background established and was not good character development. There was a mystery within the story that could have been good, but it was interspersed with a storyline that just didn't work. "

    " Good story with a secret to be uncovered and a surprise ending. "

    " For a Deveraux novel, I was a tad disappointed in this one. Maybe it was because I didn't like the main character all that much, but I didn't think it was nearly as good as the 2nd one in this series. I did start enjoying it more about half-way through the book, but maybe that was when the story of Miss Edi started being revealed, allowing for more than just this weird banter between characters. I don't know, it just felt disjointed to me. I'm still really looking forward to the 3rd book though, and hope there will be some answers to questions left in this one, like why Alex McDowell felt he "owed" it to Miss Edi and supported her for the last portion of her life. I also hope it's better written than this one. "
