Eden Eglantine was a paleontologist. As she helped Sable reunite with her biological parents, she spent time with Sable's biological brother, Roark Langtry, looking for the bonebeds of dinosaurs. Eden understood that Roark wanted her, but not WHY. Her own parents cared nothing for her and her brother, Piers, was cruel. Piers took credit for all Eden's work and kept he on a short leash! If Eden gave into her feelings for Roark, Piers would harm Roark, Sable, and the entire Langtry family!
But the Langtry family had a special heritage of some golden coins. Their ancestors watched over them. Sable and Eden were about to learn that the Langtry family protected their loved ones!
**** This was like two stories in one! Two women in two difficult romances with two difficult men! Whew! If that was not enough to keep me busy, the author continued (and concluded) a sub-plot from a previous book, titled "It Happened At Midnight", of the kidnapped Langtry baby years before and the reunion once she was grown! I was delighted to read of so much happening at once! Wonderful story that I highly recommend! ****
Together with her best friend, Eden Eglantine, she decides to visit the town where the family resides and see what she can find out. What she finds out is more than she bargains for. After meeting the family, there is little doubt in anyone's mind that Sable is the missing child. Yet, it is hard to begin a relationship with people you know nothing about. Sable decides to play it safe and hightails it back home deciding to leave well enough alone.
Culley Blackwell works for the Langtry family and cares about them. Culley has had a rough life and finally found peace and acceptance within this family. However, he can't stand the pain he sees them in and goes to Sable and convinces her to return. Culley gets more than he bargains for when Sable returns and decides to stay with him. She considers Culley to be neutral territory. A person she can be with when the stress gets to be too much. Culley, who lives alone with the bare necessities, doesn't quite know how to handle this emotional woman.
Meanwhile, Sable's friend Eden is a woman who has been ridicule by her domineering family all her life. She considers herself unworthy of love. Sable is and always has been the one good thing in her life. Much to her dismay, Roarke, Sable's might be brother, takes an interest in her. This pleases the Langtry family since Roarke has cut himself off from life since the death of his wife and infant child.
I could on and on trying to convey what a great book this is and never capture the essence of the book. Just trying to describe the plot is almost impossible because there are so many different emotions and things happening. I guess if I had to pinpoint it, I would say the book is about relationships. Don't let the plot fool you into thinking this might be a sad or depressing book to read. There are many funny moments in this book and also some action involving Eden's evil brother. I will say this story picks up from Ms. London's previous book. However I think it stands alone.
If you are looking for a book about relationships (two love stories for the price of one) with comedy and drama, this is probably a book you will want to read. As usual, I will be waiting for her next book.
