In the second installment of Maureen Child's Marconi Sisters Trilogy (after AND THEN CAME YOU), the story focuses on the youngest sister, "Mike" Michaila Marconi. All ready reeling from the fact that her dream property was bought by someone else, Mike has insinuated herself into the owner's life--by changing the way things are constructed in his house, and dropping by constantly to make helpful suggestions.

For Lucas Gallagher, the owner of the property Mike still considers her own, Mike is a th

I get a little excited sometimes when I find new authors, especially ones with a big backlist. This kind of glorious discovery doesn’t happen as often as I think it should, but I feel very grateful nonetheless. Maureen Child is the latest author to make this special list. I’m a fan of mass-market paperback series, and although this story is an oldie, it’s definitely a goodie.

This story is actually the second book of the Marconi sisters’ series. We are int

A few years ago I read the first one in this series and really enjoyed it. Recently I had the opportunity of grabbing book number two and I couldn't let it pass. I am happy to report that I did enjoy it although I was a bit worried in the beginning.

Mike is the youngest Marconi sister. She is saving money to buy her dream property when suddenly someone else comes along and buys it. My problems with the beginning of the book was precisely because I couldn't understand Mike and Lucas's relationship

From the start I liked this story much better than And Then Came You. I enjoyed the chemistry between Lucas and Mike. I enjoyed that she was always seemed to be invading his space. They had heated disagreements and then suddenly the story got heated in a very different direction. And I mean heated. This was Mike and Lucas’s story, but there were also a lot of interactions from Jo and Sam (Mike’s sisters) as was as the Candellano family (prior series set in the same town as this series), but not ...more

Master plumber Michaela Marconi has been driving Lucas Gallaher nuts. Every time he turns around she's in *his* house, messing with his design for *his* house and the worst thing about it is she's always right. Mike doesn't do long term relationships but Lucas has gotten under her skin. Part of it is his house. It should have been her house. She had coveted that land and had planned a dream house. His house. Sometimes striking sparks is the best way to get a flame. This book has hot sex, lots of ...more

It was fun to continue the story of the Marconi family. I felt like this character, Mike, was very familiar. I finally figured out that she must have been in the Candellano trilogy which I read several years ago. There was a little surprise at the end of this book. I can't wait to see how that turns out in the 3rd book of the trilogy.
