Publisher's Summary

When a young woman inherits a rundown mansion, the last thing she expects to find is the key to her heart...

Abby Foster is a fish out of water in the Maine coastal town of Jewell Cove. The crumbling Foster estate, left to her by a relative she never even knew, has everyone's eyes on her - an eerie reminder of the long-buried family secrets that have haunted her... forever. Single, stunning, and sometimes too strong-willed for her own good, Abby's plan is to sell the house and hightail it back to Nova Scotia. But another part of her is intrigued by the idea of starting over somewhere new - and finally learning the truth about her heritage.

The House on Blackberry Hill

Enter Tom Arseneault. The best contractor in Jewell Cove, Tom is determined to restore the beauty and prestige of the Foster mansion - and maybe even work his charms on its beautiful new heir. The attraction between him and Abby is undeniable, and the more time Tom spends on the house the more he wants to be in it with her. But Abby's not sure she can trust him - or anyone in Jewell Cove who seems to know more about her family history than she does. Home: Is it really where the heart is after all?

AMAZING Story!!!

I loved this book!!!! The story was heartfelt , deep, romantic in the most beautiful,intimate way. The characters touched me on so many levels as they struggled with their pasts, their emotions, working through their fears and helping one another to heal. The author Donna Alward writes beautifully with simplicity and depth and the narrator Elisabeth Rodgers did an amazing job with the voices of the characters (male or female) with just the right energy, just the right emotion. I was so drawn in. I am so happy that there are books continuing the story. I purchased them immediately. I would like to listen to all of Donna Alward’s books.

Had potential

This was just ok. I think it didn’t need to be as long as it was. It would have been better as a 3-4 hour listen. There wasn’t enough “content” to drag it out the way it was. It was basically just the back and forth with the two main characters. The little bit of “story” just wasn’t developed enough IMO

Sweet Old Fashioned Romance & Bit o Supernatural

Interesting plot pleasant imagery and a sweet romance that develops very gradually. the main characters are well developed, but I didn't feel inclined to read the next story about Rick.

Better writing than earlier works

I will say I believe this author is developing as a writer. This book is more nuanced, in terms of character development than her earlier writing. I loved the voice of the narrator
