This is a romance with a twist and an old mystery that lies at its heart. While I could see the ending coming a mile off, it was interesting to read the various characters that roam about in this melodrama. The rich really are different people and for once its not the romantic lead who holds the purse strings. That lends a different flavor to this story of a missing kidnap victim, a runaway daughter, a gilded family with a tarnished past and the haunted man who’s been holding out hope of finding his lost fiancée.

The only sour note for me was the teenaged girl, Leslie Anne Westbrook. Given the shabby way she handled the shocking news of her birth, you could understand why her mother and grandfather didn’t want to tell her. She got off easy compared to her mother but her cross behavior, nasty tantrums and locking her doors make her seem as if she were the only victim. What a brat! When people kept falling over her to let her have her own way, I just wished someone would smack her.

But all’s well that ends well. The author does her darnedest to make everything turn out splendidly for her leads. She even neatly sidesteps the likely trauma that Tessa and Leslie Anne should have suffered from their respective assailants. Henry James once stated that Americans like tragic stories with happy endings and this romance/murder/mystery definitely fits the bill.

cliched, both in plot, characterization, and writing style, to the point of being cringe-worthy.
Cardboard characters.
