The House on Blackberry Hill by Donna Alward
Book 1 of 5 in the Jewell Cove Series
Family secretes, a ghost from the past, and new love will draw readers into this compelling story, first in the Jewell Cove series by NYT Bestselling Author, Donna Alward.
Abby Foster arrives in Jewell Cove to take possession of the family mansion she’s inherited from a relative she never knew existed. Her plan is to refurbish it, put it on the market, and head back to Nova Scotia. But the house – and the secrets hidden within it-catch her in its spell. And before long she’s drawn into the close-knit town and falling for her sexy contractor, Tom Arseneault.
Tom hides away in his secluded cottage where he can nurse his grief and broken heart in private. Then Abby arrives in town, and the restoration job at Blackberry Hill is too tempting to resist, much like its determined and beautiful owner. It doesn’t take long for Tom’s heart to begin to thaw…and for love to come knocking.
As a dark family secret is uncovered, a family emergency also shows Abby that Tom isn’t over his broken heart. Will she choose to stay and take a chance on a man still in love with another? Or will she leave her heritage-and heart-behind forever?
