What does one do when the objective they set in life is changed?

Liliana Claremont has a clear and concise way of handling problems and living her life.  After her father’s death she choose to live frugally allowing her to pursue his interests in chemistry without a husband.  Geoffrey Wentworth, the Earl of Stratford is of the same mindset and the last thing he wants is to be married.

 

Geoffrey’s mother and Liliana’s aunt disagree with this idea and force a house party meeting upon them.  With total indifference on his part, Geoffrey agrees only as it will push his political goals since the house guests include the political parties he needs to win his point.  Liliana on the other hand uses this tryst to investigate what she believes was the murder of her father at the hands of someone living at Somerton Park, Geoffrey’s estate.  Though she wants to Liliana cannot in fact, even rule out Geoffrey himself, as she has not cleared his name quite yet.  The problem starts once Liliana and Geoffrey turn the tables from indifference to desire.  Neither of them understand what is going on since they know they do not want a relationship, but the attraction between them is explosive and something neither can deny nor hide from.

 

The secret rendezvous become more frequent and the trust Geoffrey shows Liliana weighs heavy on her heart.  Liliana does not want to use him to gain access to the information she seeks, but must.  She worries what will happen when he finds out her true mission and wonders if losing his love is too a high a price to pay for solving this mystery.  Liliana has always moved toward her life’s mission of using her knowledge to help others, now though she realizes she needs help.  Can she turn to the man of her future, or will she always be haunted by the ghosts of her past?

 

 This book is the equivalent of a first time at bat and hitting a grand slam, it is that good.  There is not a sentence that is not captivating and a chapter that does not make you want to read more.  I adored these flawed yet perfect characters and with every encounter, I knew they were going to be a glorious romantic hit.  Heather Snow has a future so bright she definitely will need sunglasses to block the lights of fame.
