When eccentric millionaire Patrick Bailey hires her to be his housekeeper, and then when Angie risks her own safety to help Mr. Bailey get his twin great-grandsons out of a rattlesnake's strike zone, she finds herself fully at the center of the town's curiosity.

User Review  - Judy Wise - Goodreads

I can't believe that this series is almost over, with just 1 more book to find. This was a different story for me, exciting and spiritual complete with snakes, and murder. I loved it and look forward to the search for the final book "A Fine Line" in this series. Read full review
