When Abby's gardener is murdered she decides she wants answers. A little digging uncovers more than she could have ever dreamed. What made the gardener come work for her father if he had plenty of money? Is it coincidence that both her gardener and his beloved wife die of the exact same poisoning? What do these questions- and more- have to do with illegal adoptions?
Meet Abby Rose. When her father died, he left her and her twin sister, Kate, tons of money. While Kate is pursuing a career in psychology, Abby hasn't found her calling yet. But all that changes when an afternoon of sunbathing leads to finding her gardener, Ben, dead. First, she seeks out information on him hoping to find some family she can notify. Ben left a wife behind who sheds light on him. For starters, he had plenty of money and didn't need to work. Abby also learns that Ben had been on a mission his first wife started- to find the twin daughters she gave up for adoption.
I loved this book!! I loved all the little twists in the story- both predictable & ones I didn't see coming. Ben is the strong, silent gentleman fulfilling a promise he made. Steven, Abby's ex-husband, gives new meaning to the phrase "ex from hell". Jeff is the hero who helps save the day. My review has not even come close to doing this book justice. I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next.
