While renovating the MacKinnon mansion, Samantha Holt discovers three prized ceramics in a wall. The one in a million find could provide much needed funds for the restoration—and her family's struggling auction business. She calls a Chicago expert for a second opinion.
Zachary Reynolds arrives with his five-year-old daughter in tow, intending to leave with the vases immediately. Partly because the pottery won't reach its six-figure potential in a small-town sale, but mostly because the ceramics will secure his job in an impending merger with a larger firm—and he needs that guaranteed stability for his daughter.
Sam and Zach both need the pottery for very personal reasons, but only one can emerge victorious. As they research the history of the pieces and the mansion, however, the best choice isn’t clear-cut. Add in romantic feelings neither of them expected and things become even more complicated. With the odds stacked against them, can they both achieve the financial and personal success they crave?
My thoughts: I enjoyed returning to this series and the small town draw of Harmony. Reading about the mystery surrounding the vases was interesting, and I love the remodeling that takes place. My husband and I remodeled our old home, though we didn't find any real treasures in the walls.
I could relate to both of the characters, as they struggled to work together while having different plans for the vases. The author does a wonderful job of giving readers the chance to see each of the viewpoints. This is a wonderful continuation of the series!
I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
