Review quote

"Details of smalltown New England life round out this powerfully successful homage." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "realistically quirky yet all too relatable characters, polished writing, tart humor, and an abundance of potent sexual chemistry. [...] another romance to treasure from one of the genre's superstars, and proof positive that good things come to those readers who wait." -- Booklist (starred review) "Heart-wrenching and uplifting, with witty dialogue, emotional depth, and details that give substance and texture to an already entertaining, engrossing story." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "In a stunning change of pace, Phillips reveals a brilliant flair for the gothic as she channels the Brontes, Daphne du Maurier, Victoria Holt, and Phyllis Whitney [...] An unforgettable, deliciously spicy romance that readers won't want to put down." -- Library Journal (starred review)
