Romance and Drama to Capture the Heart in This Emotional Tale

The last thing Libby Sawyer and her father expected upon their return from their summer home was to find strangers inhabiting a house that had been in their family for decades. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family from Romania to the town of Colden, Massachusetts with a singular purpose: to claim the house willed to him long ago. Since neither party has any intention of giving up their claim, a fierce legal battle ensues between the two families.

When important documents go missing from the house, Libby suspects Michael is the culprit. Determined to discover the truth behind the stolen papers, Libby investigates, only to find more layers of mystery surrounding Michael and his family. Despite their rivalry, Libby finds herself developing feelings for this man with the mysterious past.

As a decision about the house looms in the courts, Libby must weigh the risks of choosing to remain loyal to her family or give her heart to a man whose intentions and affections are less than certain.

    looking fwd to this 2nd release of Elizabeth's...As beautiful a read as conveyed by its cover,
    you will not want to lay this story aside...



    In the small town of Colden, Massachusetts, Libby Sawyer leads a quiet, predictable life.
    Yet beneath the surface, she is haunted by a secret.
    Newly arrived on American shores, Michael Dobrescu is far from predictable.
    His arrival in Colden is anything but quiet.
    Michael's shocking claim to be the rightful owner of Libby's father's house
    immediately alienates him from the appalled citizens of Colden.
    Despite her own outrage,
    Libby is unwittingly fascinated by this enigmatic man
    who seems equally intrigued by her.

    When valuable and sensitive documents go missing,
    Michael and his family are targeted as likely culprits.
    Determined to discover the truth behind the stolen papers,
    Libby investigates, only to find herself confronting
    both mystery and long buried relational issues.

    As the court's decision about the house looms and the layers of mystery
    surrounding Michael's past are unveiled,
    Libby's loyalties are tested in ways she never imagined...


    lovely ~
    intriguing people and places
    Elizabeth once again scores highly with her newest novel.
    Excerpts available by clicking here...
    excellent attention to details
    and realistic characterization filled with abundant secrets
    result in a beautiful historic story.
    Elizabeth has a knack for presenting unusual plots that spare
    readers from rehashed stories and insipid characters.

    Well Done!
    and Congratulations, Elizabeth, on another winner!

    I love how Camden does her characters and romance. She always incorporates unique character traits and interesting backgrounds that are rarely seen in other fictional works. This book was no different. Michael’s mysterious background in Romania and Libby’s unique obstacle trait I have not seen in Christian historical romance before or in other fiction for that matter. I loved seeing these two come together romantically with their one-of-a-kind personalities and backgrounds. There’s a tenderness present in Camden’s romances that pulls the reader’s emotions in hard. I always know I’ll finish a work of hers with a smile on my face and a twinge in my heart. Libby and Michael balance each other out well, both providing a confident love that gives the other a focus outside their main problems.I do have a bit of a problem with the leading premise for this novel, though. Knowing the historical time period and the attitudes thereof, it seems highly unlikely that the law would let what is in essence a squatter immigrant family dwell in a home while the current family is forced to find other lodgings. At least, not until everything is completely settled in court since said squatter family claims family inheritance of the home.Despite a somewhat unbelievable start to the novel, everything else that follows was a treat to read. I enjoyed the characters and romance, and they are the heart of the novel. It’s been interesting visiting Camden’s earlier works to see what her writing was like back then. I think it’s safe to say that she was just as good telling a fantastic romantic yard back then as she is nowadays. Recommended for readers of Christian historical romance; you’ll enjoy it to the hilt.

    What I loved most about this novel, was the characters in them. The plot was good, but it’s really the characters that made the book twice as enjoyable to read. Libby is a great character with an awful secret - although I thought it was most definitely a secret problem that can be fixed, so I’m not sure why it wasn’t encouraged for her to try to solve this issue. Perhaps because she’s tried so hard to do so with results, she just gave up - what surprised me was I really thought Michael would do something about it, but he didn’t. (This whole thing will make sense once you read the book). I thought Libby and Michael were such a wonderful couple! from the start they had a little spark and it eventually grew to something more but it was just so nice to read them both. Some of the things Michael says to Libbey throughout the book were so nice I had to sit back and reread them again. They were most definitely very memorable quotes. My favorite scene, had to be when they were stranded in the rain.The plot was really good and interesting. I was very glad of Mirela’s outcome because of her past story. What got me all riled up was Regina. Oh argh. She got me so mad and I can’t believe she did what she did. (Which just goes to show you how involved in the plot I was while reading this book). I also liked the perfume parts of the book. That was interesting and didn’t think someone like Michael would be into that sort of thing. It’s definitely something you don’t see in most novels out there.Definitely recommended for those who want a light romantic read. The romance was brilliant, the plot very nice and interesting to follow, most importantly it had very memorable characters that made the book absolutely fantastic.

    A charming, delightful story...heartwarming and true. The characters are not perfect but flawed...as ordinary humans are., .but at the end, they all come out doing the right thing,
