Brenda Prentiss has just received word that she's inherited a fortune from a lady she doesn't know. Days later, someone tries to kill her.

Ethan walked away from his family fortune and his demanding mother years ago. When he receives word that his mother is dead and her fortune has gone to someone else, he doesn't care. When he meets Brenda, he's prepared not to like her. But instead of indifference he feels a stirring that he can't name. Will he finally realize that love is more important than long-held grudges, and will he realize this before someone finally succeeds in hurting Brenda?

Wilkins has created another heartwarming read. The suspense story is not exceptionally strong, but the romance between Brenda and Ethan is entertaining just the same. Plenty of secondary characters add a little extra something for the reader. Wilkins has provided loyal readers with another sweet book. (Jan., 448 pp., $5.99)
