 Samantha Witherspoon is a strong, independent, businesswoman, determined to prove her worth as the heir to her late-grandmother’s chain of cafés. When she clashes with Matt Sullivan, the stubborn contractor who refuses her renovation project, Samantha returns to her childhood home to convince him. Sparks fly, tempers flare, and Samantha quickly realizes that befriending the rugged contractor isn’t as easy as she thought. Despite her reservations, desire ignites between them under the city stars of Montreal. His mere touch makes her long for the kind of love she thought she’d never have. When a mystery box reveals devastating family secrets, Samantha decides it’s time to come-clean with Matt. But before she can, her secret arrives on her doorstep. Samantha’s heart is torn. Will a promise made to her late-grandmother prevent her from finding true happiness?

Between The Pages of this story is a memorable romantic plot interwoven with threads of mystery. As the title suggests, the book is all about secrets, and as I was reading I kept trying to guess what the secrets were, but I didn't pick any of them! So a big thumbs up for keeping me guessing all throughout the book! The two main characters are great, and there is plenty of conflict to keep the pages turning. I loved how it didn't focus solely on the romance, but involved business dynamics and a deep family story with secrets that were gradually revealed until all loose ends were tied up at the end.  I also loved the nice touch of the main character's string of cafe's being named after her surname (Witherspoon) ~ With-Her-Spoon Cafe's. I loved this story

Review Rating: 5 Stars
