Hott Synopsis:

Gloria is devastated when barely a week before their nuptials her fiance is killed while out with another girl.
Running away to her father’s ancestral home to avoid the well meaning attention she finds that maybe there is a bit more to this life than she’s always believed.

Hott Review:

This isn’t my first or even second read of this book. I’ve actually owned it for years and read it several times. Yet, this time I didn’t enjoy it as much as I have in the past. Usually, I’m more able to focus on Gloria’s growth whereas this time I couldn’t get past the devastation that started this.
