Summary:

Buried secrets and past betrayals, old friendships and new beginnings are at the heart of this rich, compelling bestseller from Fern Michaels, one of today's most popular novelists.

Twenty years after a childhood accident left a permanent shadow over her life, Cady Jordan has returned to her Pennsylvania hometown. Her beloved grandmother Lola, a retired movie star, needs Cady's care -- but soon after arriving at Lola's lavish estate, it's clear that the colorful actress will be Cady's mentor to living life to the fullest. Cady wants nothing more than to come out of her shell, but to do so means resurrecting her lost memories of the day when a foolish stunt ended with a young bully's death and Cady's serious injury -- a tragedy for which her friends held Cady responsible. They're adults now -- a lawyer, a businessman, a stay-at-home mom. And a police chief: Boomer Ward, whose flaring attraction works on Cady's guarded heart. Now, Cady must determine who can be trusted as she draws closer to Boomer and confronts those who wish she'd never returned. Old wounds may be healed, but can Cady close a door on her heartache and embrace a bright new life?

    Reminded me of the type of book I would have read in high school. But it was easy listening and light fair for around the holidays. Guess I'm just a sucker for happy endings.

    I found this book to be very juvenile. Possibly for a teenager then an adult. I felt there were a lot of "fillers" in the book. Meaning that it seemed to go on and on about the same thing, like the Judas Tree incident.

    I loved this book. A mystery, love story and some laughs included. What more would you want. Fern did a wonderful job with Cady Jordan.

    I love Fern Micheals and I loved this book. The characters in this book are very believable. The grandma and her friends are a hoot.

    I think the story was a little far fetched - a life changing secret was not researched before 20 years went by is emphazied quite a bit. Overall, the characters appeared very real and are quite enjoyable. The story line does take a few loops that you don't expect. A good listen.

    This book made me sick. It was feasting on the lie that any hairbrained whim should be acted on, to "live." It might be appealing to a greedy, self-indulgent person who believes that money and laziness make a dream life. It feeds on the immature soul that can't live without vengence. The circumstances, the plot, was more like a fairy tale.

    Whille admittedly predictable for the romance genre, this book has a gripping plot that keeps the listener glued to the speaker. Wholly enjoyable, another audiobook that makes rush hour pass in a flash.
