I love this book to bits! I've read it several times and will probably read it several more.
It has an intriguing murder mystery, history, and a sweet romance that is clean and fresh.

Typical Douglas Bond, tight, well written story, amusing, highly relatable characters, and plenty of unexpected twists and turns. I read almost the entire book in one sitting!
