Jude Deveraux is an author I first read many years ago and while some of her books definitely do not age well I do think the Montgomery/Taggert saga books do continue to be basically enjoyable to read. I have always enjoyed the interactions her characters have had and the places she sets the story. The plot can be a bit thin but overall I think it's a good beach read. ( )

I really love this book and love every Jude Deveraux book about the Taggarts and Montgomery families. This is not a story where the girl is just so in love with the guy from day one. Mike really had to work to get Sam and they really have to work out a lot of her issues with love and intimacy before they can really fall in love. I liked seeing Sam grow from from being a scared doormat to a strong confident woman. I truly enjoyed the scenes from the past during the prohibition era during the 1920s with the mobsters that caused a lasting impact on Sam's family spanning over about 60 years. I am really in love with the characters in this story. I have seriously probably read this book at least 5 times. ( )

This book was interesting enough to finish and the ending was exciting but I got frustrated with lack of honesty and people hiding their secrets way too long. Samantha's father dies but his will says she must live in NY and find her grandma before she gets inheritance. Her landlord Mike decides when to release her money.

...he’d like to pick her up and carry her back to his house and keep her there, maybe forever. But if she wanted something from him first, like maybe for him to climb to the heavens, pick up a dozen or so stars, string them together, and hang them in her bedroom, he thought he would like to know so he could start tying ladders together.
