I liked this story. It was charming, the mystery was good, and the hero was divine. This one is hard to write a review about, because I don't want to give away any of the plot secrets. The timing was excellent concerning the mystery. The clues were dropped at just the right points. I liked how it ended, and how secondary characters came together to make this an excellent read.

The reason it didn't get four stars: it took too long for the heroine to figure out what she wanted. For a most of the book, she couldn't see past her own nose. Also, it showed its 1998 roots by the hero telling the heroine to basically not worry her pretty little head about money. Her lack of ownership in the family finances bugged me, but I can write it off as being historically accurate.
