From the Back Cover
Valle Rosa, a small, drought-weary town in Southern California, is under destruction from deadly wildfires. Into the midst of this crisis rolls a handsome stranger calling himself Jeff Cabrio, who claims he can cure the town's troubles by making it rain.
But Cabrio's entrance into the community brings more than just potential rain, and it's not long before the residents' interests turn from the weather to their mysterious neighbour. For tragedy-afflicted sculptress Mia Tanner, Cabrio unearths old wounds and new loves. For struggling journalist Carmen Perez, Cabrio brings the possibility of revitalizing her career through uncovering the truth about him. And ex-major-league player Chris Garrett is offered the chance to come to terms with the demise of his career as a professional baseball pitcher. As their lives become irrevocably entwined, it's not long before each is forced to face the ghosts of the past.

The book is set in Valle Rosa, California, an area plagued by drought and fires. Desperate to save his scorched community, the mayor of the town seeks the assistance of a compelling stranger, one who promises to bring rain to the valley but at the same demands privacy in his work. With the mayor's ex-wife being a TV reporter though, and half the town thinking the elusive stranger is a con-man, keeping a low profile might not be as easy as expected...
As I've said, this was a really wonderful read. Though I didn't always like the characters and thought some of their actions questionable on occasion, they were nonetheless believable. There's nothing worse than one dimensional characters, but thankfully there were none here. The plot moved along at a steady pace with interesting little twists and turns that I'm coming to realise this author is excellent at creating. The story wasn't predictable either, which was reassuring; this was a terrific piece of contemporary fiction full of emotion and depth.
If you've never read a book of Diane Chamberlain's before, then what on earth are you waiting for?
