Summary

Stella Boor's biological father is a nameless, faceless sperm donor. At least, that's what her parents have led her to believe. Imagine her surprise when she learns he's none other than rock legend Billy Jameson and that Billy has died and left Stella a historic inn on a sprawling farm in the mountains of Virginia. A city girl at heart, Stella can't imagine living anywhere but New York. Her first inclination is to sell the property. But the terms of Billy's will stipulate she manages the inn for three years before putting it on the market.

Stella considers what's really keeping her in New York. Her hotel-management career is off to a rocky start; she's lost three jobs in less than a year. She's grown apart from her best friend, and her so-called boyfriend is only interested in late-night booty calls. Something is missing from Stella's life. On impulse, she hops on the next train headed to Virginia hoping to find happiness.

When she sees the dilapidated state of the inn, Stella realizes she's in over her head. But the more she learns about the fascinating Jameson family, the more she wants to know. Why did her mother keep Billy Jameson a secret? Were her biological parents in a relationship, or was she the result of a one-night stand? And why did her father wait until after his death to bring Stella to Virginia?

NOT listening to lesbian references...

...as if it's normal, and of course no summary or comments mentioned this. Getting a refund.

Great starts to a new series

This was a truly fun, silly, well written story. Stella’s life isn’t going how she thought it would. She keeps getting in her own way. Then it turns out that her mother had been lying to her all along about who her father/sperm donor was. She then receives a surprise inheritance from him and this self described city girls heads to the country. I loved reading about her journey of self discovery, learning who she really is and what she wants out of life. She meets some interesting characters along the way, makes friends, let’s love in and discovers that happiness can happen if you’re willing to take a chance and open your heart. Downloading next one now!
