the letter that sends her world crashing around her Having gone to the police to report him missing, she discovers that she her father have fake IDs Travelling from place to place has never before alarmed Sophie it was their way of life Her father s a woodcrafter, she now works with clay, touring the craft fairs is how they make their living or was it to keep them on the move The only place she could possibly call home is the cottage where they spend 2 weeks of every year, during which time they would pay a visit to her mother s grave Surely he would go there With no sign of him at the cottage, Sophie goes to Private Investigator Cain Garrison to hire him to help her find her father.Having learnt the hard way about getting involved with one of his cases, Cain pushes down the empathy rising in him He has to remain professional detached So why is he now at the window watching her leave watching her help Mrs Gleason picking up oranges And who is that man in the alley now getting in his car heading straight for Sophie A great action filled story, with undercurrents of faith, love forgiveness throughout, a very sweet ending Sophie Clarkston is shocked to learn that she isn t who

leaving behind a heartbreaking letter asking forgiveness Desperate for answers, Sophie turns to private investigator Cain Garrison in tiny Promise, Virginia But the moment they leave his office, her life is threatened and her home ransacked Who is after her And who, exactly, is she With questions about his own past, Cain vows to help Sophie uncover the truth Before someone comes out of the shadows to keep it hidden forever Well first off the synopsis, as always, embellishes a bit.But that said I was going along with this book pretty good, I liked the author s writing style, I liked where the story was going, and the climax was well written, very descriptive and accurate as far as I can tell with my limited knowledge until the last chapter Then it went down hill in my opinion I know people love happy endings, but the happy ending shouldn t feel like you just slammed face first into a concrete wall at top speed SPOILER ALERT Okay, last chapter and how it ruined the whole thing for me and lost this book a star view spoiler The last chapter should have been called the epilogue It takes place just over a year and a half AFTER the previous chapter Hence, epilogue Now that s all fine and dandy, and I loved who this chapter startedthen IT happened The I love you even though I don t really know you and I planned to have a life with you Me too thing They knew each other for what, a month Maybe two if you pretend spread it out in your headanyhow one month, and then some traumatic happens, people get hurt, sh t happens and Sophie is whisked away with her dad into witness protection until a trial against a dead dude can take place.My other problem is that you have NO idea what this magical evidence Sophie s dad has If the dude is dead, and that s the dude the evidence is against, how does it apply to taking out an entire organized crimesyndicate And how do you take them all down in 19 months Getting off topic Back to my OTHER rant.It s sweet that Cain rebuilt her house and added a couple of extra rooms, but creepy how he assumes that he will totally still be around and that will be a nursery Creepy I tell you What s worse is Sophie, now under another name, is like maid Mariannor however you spell itout of Men in Tights yes, Yes, YES Uh noOne month of knowing each other, no contact for 19 months, been back in each others lives for all of 5 minutes and already have their life together planned And she s cool with it too in fact she s done the same creepy thing he did and planned out their life togetherno no no no NO No hide spoiler Dropped my rating by a full star to 2.5 stars My recommendation is, read this book until she gives him her new name and says nice to meet you and STOP Unless you re not like me and don t have a problem with face first splat into an unrealistic happy ending Otherwise, very good book Just VERY unfortunate it has my ultimate romance book pet peeve at the end LI SuspenseDiane Burke2011Steeple

daddy was gone It didn t matter that Sophie was now a grown young woman, her father was all she had, and she was determined to find him, regardless of the note and money he had left for her.Hiring a private investigator was all she could do, after the police had told her that she was NOT Sophie Clarkston Pretty much they were saying that she did not exist, that records showed she was not who she thought she was She went back to Promise, Virginia the small town she considered home There she could stay in the cottage, that had been in her mother s family for years Hiring Cain Garrison seemed like a smart move It would prove to be something that would save her life, several times What she did not realize, however was that she would loose her heart to Cain, all the while it was being broken by the things he found out about her father I enjoyed this book, and read it front to back without putting it down Diane Burke has written such a delightful story, intriguing with enough mystery to keep you guessing, and enough romance to keep you hoping that dreams do come true Truly a great book Discussion guide included 215 pages 5.50 US 4 stars.This book was provided for review purposes
