I love Barbara Delinsky's books! She writes wonderful characters with interesting stories - this one was not a disappointment. Interestingly, this is actually two stories in one. The main story concerns Casey, a therapist, who grew up with her mother and only knew who her father was from a distance. Her father is a successful professor, author, and therapist. The story revolves around her relationship with her mother, her father, and her new love interest. The second story involves a young woman named Marybeth Clyde. Her story is much more tragic and is told in a different way - I won't mention it here, because part of the intrigue of the novel is how each story unfolds. ( )

I enjoyed this book. Barbara Delinsky knows how to deliver a well written story about relationships and life. No surprises, just enjoyed the ride as I knew where we were heading. ( )

Liked it, but the ending got to be too predictable, and then all a rush of info, and wrapping up everything. Two stories in one. Woman's dad dies (who she never knew), and leaves her a condo. She finds a journal (2nd story) and tries to solve it. During all this her mother is dyin after being in a coma, and she is involved with her new gardner. Who also ends up to be involved and part of the journal story.

Successful psychotherapist Casey Ellis moved into her father's Beacon Hill exclusive townhome. Her second cousin (unknown to her at the time) lived in a small town and had killed her abusive mother, while her father took the 6 year sentence for her. He was obsessed with with her to the point she made up Pete in order to get the courage to escape her dad, with the help of the Sheriff, Dan. Both women's lives intertwined when Casey discovered her cousin was actually right under her nose, working as the housekeeper. ( )

Book description
Psychologist Casey Ellis never met her father -- but that didn't stop her from following in his professional footsteps. Now he has died, and Casey is shocked to have inherited his elegant Boston town house, complete with a maid and a handsome, enigmatic gardener. When she finds a manuscript that could be a novel, a journal, or a case study of one of her father's patients in her new home, she becomes engrossed in the story of Jenny, a young woman trying to escape her troubled life. Convinced the story is true and that her father left it as
a message for her, Casey digs deeper. As she pieces together the mysteries surrounding her father, Jenny, and the romantic new stranger in her life, she discovers startling links between past and present, and unexpected ties between what is real and what is imagined.
