She’s running a flower shop and loving it, and Seth wants to paint her, and more. But everyone has secrets in their past, and Seth’s is insisting on turning up like a bad penny, threatening everything he holds dear.

Roberts knows how to create characters to love and hate, and a plot that is original. An entertaining read.
