A wave of hope carries Olivia Frost back to her small New England hometown nestled in the beautiful Swift River Valley. She's transforming a historic home into an idyllic getaway. Picturesque and perfect, if only the absentee owner will fix up the eyesore next door … Dylan McCaffrey's ramshackle house in an inheritance he never counted on. It also holds the key to a generations-old lost treasure he can't resist—any more than he can resist his new neighbor. Against this breathtaking landscape, Dylan and Olivia pursue love-buried secrets and discover a mystery wrapped in a love story—past and present.

Professional reviews

"Olivia Frost moves back to her hometown in New England and sets about working on her historic home. When she writes to the owner of the run-down house next door, Dylan McCaffrey, an ex-hockey player turned multimillion-dollar executive, shows up, hoping to discover why his late father bought the house. Susan Boyce lends a clear and expressive voice as narrator. She deftly moves from one main character to the other, bringing the nuances of their personalities to life in her dramatizations. Standout characterizations include the timid voice of Olivia's anxiety-ridden mother and the outspoken but unmistakably elderly voice of Grace, a neighbor who may know the secrets behind the house. Boyce's adroit handling of pace and timing makes an intriguing plot even more seductive. M.F. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
