#1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood returns with a novel of family drama, suspense, and?of course?romance.

Peyton Lockhart and her sisters have inherited Bishop's Cove, a small, luxurious oceanfront resort, but it comes with a condition: The girls must run the resort for one year and show a profit?only then will they own it.

A graduate of a prestigious French culinary school, Peyton has just lost her job as a food critic. Out of work and in a bad place personally, a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful.

There are countless challenges and too many people who want to stop the sisters from succeeding. Among them are Peyton's contentious cousins, who are outraged that they didn't inherit the resort, as well as a powerful group of land developers who have been eyeing the coveted beachfront property.

It's soon apparent to Peyton that their efforts are being sabotaged, but she refuses to let the threats scare her?until she's nearly killed. She calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help. He saved her life once; he can do it again.
Julie's previous two titles, The Ideal Man and Sweet Talk, both debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list.
