Ian Chalmers, multi-millionaire, loves to share his wealth and bestow it on others. When he grants Lucy O'Brien ten million dollars after her good deed, there are no restrictions other than when it's gone, it's gone. Lucy must use it wisely.
Now armed with ten million, Lucy wants to turn her mother's dream of owning a bakery in the Hill Country town of Willow Creek into a reality.
Andrew Whitfield is a young man Ian rescued from the streets and provided an education then hired to work for him. When Ian assigns Drew the task of watching over Lucy after she receives her money, he has ulterior motives. He's decided Lucy would be an excellent match for his workaholic personal assistant.
Anita Higman has written a page-turner novel. Her elegant way with words keep the reader entertained. I loved her comparison of kisses to spicy homemade salsa.
The characters are unique, true to life, and well written. Anita deals with an interesting dilemma, the pitfalls of having too much money. Yet rich or poor, she presents the reader with the underlying message: God, family and love for one another are most important.
This story deserves a five star rating.
