A wave of hope carries Oliva Frost back to her small New England hometown nestled in the beautiful Swift River Valley. She’s transforming a historic home into an idyllic getaway. Picturesque and perfect, if only the absentee owner will fix up the eyesore next door …

Dylan McCaffrey’s ramshackle house in an inheritance he never counted on. It also holds the key to a generations-old lost treasure he can’t resist—any more than he can resist his new neighbor. Against this breathtaking landscape, Dylan and Olivia pursue love-buried secrets and discover a mystery wrapped in a love story—past and present.

    " Carla Neggars slightly shifts from the more suspensful to craft this delightful story of home: find it, return to it, treasure it.... I particularly thought the secondary characters were well-drawn, interesting and full of quirks that added a texture and depth to the overall experience. "

    " I enjoyed this book but felt it moved a little slow. The author does a wonderful job of hiding the "secrets" until the very end. "
