We were so far in and since the first couple chapters nothing had really happened There'd been a few meetings The heroine did some forensic accounting apparently and then made a report to a committee There was a FIRE But no one was hurt and the authorities investigated and of course the heroine wouldn't interfere with their work She also didn't interfere with the work of the police after she and the committee turned their findings over to the proper authorityBy 80% I had or less given up There wasn't enough room for a satisfying build climax and denouement It was either going to be rushed or it wasn't going to happen at allIt didn't happen at all The conclusion is a peculiar deus ex machina resulting in something that the MC had said she didn't even want The main villain such as he was isn't dealt with It just felt like even the author got bored of the complete lack of story and couldn't bear to write about any well mannered dinners so she just uit writingThere were threads that could have been pursued that could have made this a much worth while story The villain was full of plans to seduce the heroine in order to steal her home but then he just didn't do it The heroine's late husband had a secret family and the heroine says she's determined to investigate them and share the information with her children but she doesn't Pretty much any source of conflict and therefore PLOT is ignoredIt's a lovely series of events that happened to a lovely character But she doesn't grow she doesn't overcome she doesn't express any agency in the closest thing to a resolution of the story that I can findIt's too bad but there's just not much here When a widow finds out who her husband really was what should she do?Hide from the rest of her life?Cry until there are no tears?Scream rant rave and rave?Not Maggie Maggie is a woman of action a do it now person and someone not afraid to face her fearsMaggie learns of a house her husband owns and of his misdeeds at work She decides that the only thing she can take care of right now is the house She travels to the Westbury in hopes of cleaning it up and putting it on the market But as you've always heard the heart wants what the heart wants When Maggie walks into Rosemont it was love at first sightBarbara was able to suck me into her story and the down home real life people in her book I came to know love and enjoy their triumphs and hate the hardships that they were forced to endure I appreciate how Barbara was able to create love that was responsible and built upon a friendship And as all good writers do there was a good hint of hot to it as wellI am excited to read book two Weaving the StrandsStay tuned and excited as I am going to send a interview to our crown jewel author and she's going to answer them and I'll post for all to see Thanks again and keep those pages turning This was a fun read The biggest strength of the book is the totally totally likeable good guy characters and how they all band together in a way that makes the reader want to cheer It's a great feel good story Another strength is in the descriptive prose which is especially good And the plot was well constructed making the reader want to know what was going to happen Despite the stereotypical characters and obvious plot I really enjoyed this story and will read the others in the series 35 stars I enjoyed the main character and those she meets when she arrives in a small midwest town to inherit what could only be my own dream home full of antiues and stories The town is full of problems and people who bicker and fight but most of them pull together to get the job done I'm off to order the next book in the series I loved reading Coming to Rosemont as a group discussionMaggie sure went thru a time with her sick spouse and then to learn things about himShe is a strong welled womanI had a hard time putting the book down plus I can not wait for the next book in Barbara Hinske's Great first effort While not my normal read I found the characters believable and the plot exciting I can't wait to see what happens in the next book in the series
