Summary

How much would you sacrifice to save the life of a child? In the fourth novel of best-selling author Barbara Hinske's beloved Rosemont series, Maggie Martin faces her biggest challenges when her future at Rosemont and the life of someone dear to her are at stake.

Fighting to eradicate the corruption in Westbury has left Mayor Maggie Martin drained. A sweet respite in Cornwall, England, with her new husband is exactly what she needs. Their flight hasn't left the tarmac, however, before another betrayal by her late husband Paul Martin comes to light. His lies turned their life together into an illusion, but this new revelation could put the lives of her children in jeopardy.

While Maggie weighs the option of telling them about their father's deceit, her nemesis Frank Haynes is getting closer to uncovering the truth. Though his goal of claiming Maggie's coveted Rosemont estate is clearly in sight, a potential for love has him contemplating whether he should release his lifelong dream. Can both Frank Haynes and Maggie Martin find happiness? Or will the enigmatic Haynes use Paul Martin's lies to ruin her?

Drawing Close

Really enjoying all of the Rosemont series. Drawing Close had so many twists and turns that it was hard to stop listening. The author encourages the listener to want to hear more of the evil doings of some characters and to see if any good rubs off onto the bad ones to change their lives. This book has a good ending.

Great stories

I really like the stories in this series. At times they are repetitive, but I think that is for someone who just picked up the books out of sequence.
