Jade Sawyer is a simple woman who doesn’t ask for much. Her goals are to manage her family’s mountain resort when her aunt and uncle are spending their winters in Florida and to design her own jewelry line. But there never seems to be enough time for her to work on her jewelry creations as much as she would like to. The resort always has a list of things that needs to be done and she’s there to make certain the guests are as comfortable as possible. When one handsome guest by the alias of Matt Connor shows up, Jade seems to be thrown off kilter by the instant attraction she feels for him. He’s a sexy guy and she can’t help but wonder if he feels anything toward her as well. Little does she know that Matt is really M. Riley McLaughlin, a famous novelist who is just trying to do some quiet research on the local treasure legend that this area is known for. As they get to know each other better, do they decide to start something together? Does Matt find out the information he’s looking for about the treasure legend?
I thought this was a great story because the storyline was very entertaining and the chemistry flowing between Matt and Jade was exciting. Right from the start, even though they both wanted to mind their own business with each other, I felt that they should get to know each other better. I wanted them together, but I wasn’t sure how Jade would handle the news that Matt was lying a bit by using an alias. I also couldn’t wait to see what he found out about the treasure legend. One more point that I’d like to mention is the author did a wonderful job explaining in detail the gorgeous woods surrounding the resort. Her details were so descriptive that I saw the woods and the cabins as if I was standing there looking at them myself. If you’re in the mood for a feel-good story, this is one that you should definitely check out for yourself.
